Notch for EGR and attachment point for dipstick. If that's what you are asking.

You can put 6.1 headers on a 5.7; but not 5.7 on a 6.1.

The 6.1 headers are a true short tube header while the 5.7 is just the standard exhaust manifold...The 6.1 headers will add 10-15hp to a 5.7...

Same applies. You can put the 6.1 or 6.4 onto 5.7. You won't need to notch EGR on the 2nd gen.

A tune is also required with the 6.1 to 5.7 swap correct?

To turn off the EGR yes.

Or you can notch the manifold and keep it functioning.

I have 6.1 Headers and mid pipes on my 2010 RT, makes a difference, worth the change up especially when you look at the 5.7 headers next to the 6.1. Night and day, go aheead and do it.
