Default Exhaust manifold in ruin!!

Well **** guys, im in deep this time... Ive just bought a 2000 f150 lariot with a 4.6. its had a rust problem since it rolled off the showroom floor. its been in delaware with one owner its whole life and has never been off road or near salt water, but i fire it up for the first time in a year( the last owner was 80 and doesnt drive it anymore) it was LOUD. the passenger side manifold sounded like it wasnt even there. i look under and see this....

Wow that's pretty bad. Do you plan on replacing them yourself or having a shop do it?

www.discountexhaust.com I got a passenger manifold off there for around $60 mine was rusted pretty bad too. Some penetrating oil and easy offs help.

If I had to work on those, I'd get so mad there would be a new engine sitting in its place. lol

The chance off getting the nuts and studs out of the head is just about "0" it might be cheaper to just remove the heads and send them to a machine shop or look for some other heads
