exhaust manifold

Is there a better alternative to the stock exhaust manifold?

Are you looking for more of a header with claimed horsepower additions? Or do you have a cracked manifold and are looking for a better replacement?

A better replacement, but it could be a step-up also.

Honestly I don't think that headers are worth the money they get for them as far as adding HP. Mine cracked about 3 years ago and I put one of the 60 dollar Ebay exhaust manifolds on and it's been perfect ever since. No problems what so ever.

Hell honestly I think it came from China. Just do a search on 4.0 Exhaust Manifold on Ebay and you'll find plenty. You just want to make sure whatever you get has expansion joints off the 1 and 6 tubes. Looks like a slinky on each end.

The majority of them on ebay state that it's for a 91-99. Mine is a 2004. Will those fit?
