I have an exhaust leak of some form. Two different mechanics said it is probably the exhaust manifold. I would like to replace it with a header. I am on a budget. So, best header for around $200? Or should I go with an exhaust manifold and replace the muffler with something that sounds a little better.
So I'm going through the same thing, have a brand new exhaust manifold sitting right behind me, going to install this weekend. This is probably noobish, but what is the the difference between a header and a manifold? The link you offered up above looks pretty similar to what I have, but I ordered a manifold...

The main difference is the header flows the exhaust easier. Each runner has it's own pipe...this helps the exhaust flow better, less restrictive.
