Broken Exhaust Manifold

So my mechanic told me my exhaust manifold gaskets were bad so being a car junkie, I figured I do it myself. Took off the drivers side manifold (very easy job) and learned the manifold is completely separated from the flange....

Can it be repaired, don't know but I don't like the idea because it will probably break again. I don't want to buy a new one and if I did I'd buy headers....

Anyone have a stock drivers side manifold they want to part with?

I haven't done any mods to the car and I'm not read to start, because once you start you never stop.....

This is a great opportunity to put Che's manifolds on your car. Direct bolt on and you'll gain 15 hp!

I love mine

Manifolds

I used a little JB Weld on it yesterday and will be putting it on tonight. I don't like the idea of a patched manifold.

Any chance the guys who have the stock manifolds could send pic's? What's the difference between 2.5 and the S manifolds, will they even work on my '99?

I'd love to put aftermarket headers on, but don't want to spend the money and I thought I read somewhere that Che's wasn't smog legal? I would really like the HP boost......

Thanks for the replies.

Todd
