    Exhaust Manifold Busted

    My passenger side exhaust broke at the manifold and I am now in the market for a manifold on my passenger side (luckily that is all and not wheels, bumper, suspension) which I posted in the 'Want to buy' section.

    This brings me to my question: I currently have dual exhaust off of manifolds, what kind of price am I looking at to get new exhaust run off of headers? Is this into the multi-k range? Is it even really noticeable/necessary? I'm just asking because if I'm going to spend the money to buy a used 40 year old manifold should I be considering something different.

    Thanks for any input or advice you have.

      Headers aren't that expensive at all. You can get a pair of Hooker Comp headers for $185. As far as the rest of the exhaust goes, it depends on what you want to do. Whether or not you want to run an X or H pipe, cats, type of mufflers, tips, et cetera. You could easily put a full exhaust on for under $500. If you do the work yourself, of course.

        I guess it depends on what area you live in for the exhaust. I had a local exhaust shop run a couple 2.5" pipes and some flowmasters and It only cost $150.

          Was that from the headers back? And how long ago? A pair of mufflers alone will run you $100 to $150 these days.

            It was a few years ago and the price didn't include the mufflers. They were $70 each.

            So total $240 from the headers all the way back.

                I dumped my headers a long time ago. The bottoms of the collectors tends to get hit going over the pot holes so I went with OEM manifolds.

                  I also gave up on headers MANY years ago. My pro street GTO had manifolds. My recommendation for anything except a racecar is manifolds. Too many leaks too much maintenance with headers. For a driver you will not notice a difference.

                  Just my nickel's worth.

                    Ok well Ill stick with the manifolds for now. I dont want to spend money on headers when Im not certain what I am planning on doing with the heads. Thanks for the input all.

                    As for a temp fix until I can put in the new manifold does anyone have any experience with the high temp "J-B weld" style expoxys? Im going to try and make what I have work since it really isnt going to make it any worse Id think. Ill get some pics up and let you all know how it turns out.

                      Make sure you clean the areas up the best you can before applying the epoxy
