The OBX SRT8 headers are for a GC SRT8 so they should fit directly on your HEMI with SRT8 gaskets and it comes with midpipes. You'd want to switch to a dual exhaust set up to get full effect of headers and mids, I would suggest switching to the SRT8 stock manifolds or LX manifolds if you're already going to be there. 90grandoneer is the guy to contact on that one

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing but the srt8 ones seem to be like 5x times the price of the hemi ones.

Go to eBay and type in Jeep SRT8 OBX and they will pop up. $550 for the set. you can buy used SRT8 manifolds which are essentially shorty headers for cheap and replace your stocks with those

Completed my set up Saturday, it looks and sounds great! Ill update with pics and video during lunch. I went with the IMCO D/I D/O muffler with straight pipes back. Gave it a nice deep, loud and non raspy sound and quite while drving, almost no drone at 65
