Exhaust/mileage question

I know we don't drive these truck for the fuel mileage. Especially me with 4.56 gears. But anyone seriously picking up a mile or two with long tube headers? I might just save my cash for free hub conversion if I want a few miles per gal.

Mine got just a tad better when I switched to the TrueTrac and 4:56's.

Anyone know if the Srt8 manifolds fit out trucks? I have read that there pretty comparable to shorty headers? You know if it's on the Internet it's true. Lol
