I had my exhaust stolen on my sxt, somebody decided the cat wasn't enough and cut all the way into the manifold. I have a friend who has a 01 and a 04 R/T off in a muddy field and before i go try to get them i wanted to know if they will fit. He said he has no idea and i couldnt find a concrete answer anywhere.

You will need the complete system, from the head to the muffler. The converter on the R/T does have an O2 sensor in it, vs the manifold on the normal neon.

You could get away with just the cat back, but you will have to leave the o2 sensor in to plug the hole.

The tubular manifold is a little better flowing on the R/T.

But getting it off might be difficult if everything is rusted from sitting.

The cylinder heads might be worth grabbing, even if the timing belt is broken. Even the entire engine if they aren't locked up.
