I agree. Port your stock manifolds and you will be much happier. I was so glad to get rid of mine and go back to stock. After gasket matching mine and putting them back on, the jeep actually seemed to run even better.CJ said:They will be a pain in the ass with leaks no matter who you use.
Stick with stock manafolds.

That's the one, but mine are not armorcoated. The kit comes with a bunch of tube, prebent to get around the transfer case, 2 cherry bombs, headers and clamps. I havent run any hangers and the headers haven't leaked yet, prolly due to the thick ass flanges.
What brand?HybridPOS said:I got pissed at my headers and ripped em off and threw them across the yard. I now have manifolds on.... I couldn't be happier!!! I was having to tighten up my friggen headers all the time and no matter how much I tightened them, they still leaked.
On top of that, they were in the friggen way.
