They say that you should never stop learning, well I learned something today. Apparently even though the part#'s are the same for 03-08 5.7 hemi heads, the 03-05 do infact have differences from the 06-08 heads. Such as they do not have holes /provisions for mounting a power steering pump. I found this out today as I was tearing my car apart to do the cam/head swap. Luckily I had only removed the bumper cover, the plastic covers from underneath, both wheelhouses, emptied the radiator, removed both front wheels, removed the intake manifold, strut tower bar, and other essential pieces. On the bright side I did swap the intakes, so now I do have the Eagle intake with the 6.1 rails installed.**update** I'm going to install the MTCM and the SRT rear for now and when I get a chance I will drill and tap the heads and install them.
