OUCH! $1000. FOR EXHAUST MANIFOLDS?

Got a rumble under the hood ,didn't see where it came from,so brought it to the local mechanic.Found out one manifold is cracked (driver's side) the other is warped because two bolts are broken.HE says it's pretty common and I could go with shorty headers. Now is this true,would they bolt up to the original exhaust ? No big mods? Here's the kicker,gotta call in a guy to remove the broken studs while the engine is still in the truck,for about $400.I'm going aftermarket 'cause new manifolds are $1,000 a pair ! Ogre

Shorty headers will work and yes they should bolt up fine, although they wont really do anything in the performance department they should be cheaper then 1000. dollar OEM replacements, I have a good spare set of manifolds from a 5.4 here in my garage

I was told that 5.4 and 4.6 weren't all compatible. Mine is a '99,what year is the 5.4?

97- 98 2 V heads are NON PI 99-04 2V engines heads are PI the manifolds should be the same as long as you don't use 4.6 manifolds on a 5.4 or 4.6 on a 5.4 due to different deck heights on the engines, the 2V heads are the same the only difference is PI or NON PI
