Lets see if I remember all the parts I got. I went with the custom forged pushrods from Inertia. Anyways here's the list:

Crazy Jay Plus Cam
16 6.1L Exhaust Valve Springs
Custom forged pushrods
6.1L timing set (the whole thing, tensioner chain, everything)
Timing cover gasket
5.7L Crank bolt (6.1L is the same bolt also but a different part number)
New Cam bolt
Left and Right head gaskets
2 sets of head bolts (one for each head)
Exhaust manifold gaksets
About 4 gallons of coolant (save some money and buy 2 gallons of pure coolant and 2 gallons of distilled water)
7 quarts oil
Oil filter
Optional: intake manifold gaskets (they are O rings), valve stem seals

I was leaking oil in my heads and burning it off through the exhaust so that's why I replaced the valve stem seals since that seemed to be the problem. My intake manifold gaskets were very oily so I replaced those as well. I would go with FelPro gaskets. They are the company that makes Mopars gaskets. All Mopar does is put their name on them and sell them for more money. So go with the FelPro gaskets. I can see if I can find my list with the part numbers as well and I'll get you that.

I'm essentially running 2 exhausts as I don't have any connection between both sides. No H or X or Y pipe at all.

Headers into piping


Piping to the cutout then muffler


Muffler to tips

I was looking for alot more bottom end torque. I want to be thrown back in my seat when I hit the gas pedal. I'm never going to need to go 150 mph so I don't need acceleration from speeds like 70 mph. I plan on doing a Sharadon stage III valve body and a 2800-3000 stall converter next. These should also help with what I'm looking to get from my truck. I have taken my truck to the track before and I will probably go again, but being the fastest on the track isn't my first priority. If I can be first from the red light then I'm happy

That's a pretty cool exhaust man. Have you thought about adding an h pipe between them, under the trans? Should help power output a little and would be cheap/easy.

I've thought about it but I'm not sure I have a place close enough the put one in. It wasn't my original plan to have the exhaust made this way, but with how I wanted it to look and the placement of things that's how it ended up being made. I have been considering adding an H in there though recently

Most definitely. always good to get real time readings of your AFR w/ your mods. Also a important value to whom is doing your tuning.
