Stock exh on it, with that intake, probably about 240hp/330trq if compression, plenum & cat are good and everything else in working order.

No i don't think it does. Although I'm pretty sure the 360 engine got abouta 20hp boost around 98 or 99

The 1996 was the first year with the OBD-II engine computer and is similar to the 1998 at a shaft rating of 240 at 4000 rpm/335 at 3200 rpm that Kenne Bell claims to have tested on their own chassis dyno:

http://www.kennebell.net/techinfo/do...-test-data.pdf

note their measurement of what maximum hp gains are possible with no exhaust behind the catalytic converter and when the intake & filter is removed and cold outside air is directly hosed to the throttle body.

The chart shows 16 for exhaust removed and 17 for headers but my guess is these increases are at 4000+ rpms.
Would headers increase torque at 2000rpm compared to the stock manifolds?

Only the Indy had 245hp in 96
All other 5.9 had 230hp
5.2s were rated at 220hp

In 98 both the 5.2 and 5.9 saw a hp increase from exhaust changes (given same exhaust as Indy/SSTs)

In the latest issue of Enginemasters magazine
Steve Dulcich has a series of shaft dyno tests on a Magnum 5.9V8
including ones before/after long tube 4 into 1 TTI headers.

The headers showed only 1 hp of gain at 2500 rpm.

Max gain was 8.7% in HP at 5500 rpm
where the power rose from 274 to 298.

These tests were without catalytic converters or mufflers
which will drop all the % gains considerably.
