Exhaust Headers/manifold...


Has anyone done any upgrades to their exhaust manifolds? I drive a 81 SLC, and I believe it has never been touched. I guess if it ain't broke then don't fix it.

That said, the manifold and nuts look pretty rusted. I am planning to remove it, get it refinished, painted and put on some new gaskets.

Does anyone know how much a new manifold costs? And how complex is it to remove the manifold/header.

you won't want to know the price of new manifold...but removing is usually pretty easy,the nuts are 12mm.
Exhaust gaskets are expensive so be prepared for a shock,buy new nuts as matter of course.
