Exhaust Manifold Leaks

Are these leaks large enough to worry about, or is this a normal amount of leakage before the manifolds heat up and seal to the heads? #8 looks like it's throwing soot onto the firewall. Does anyone have any ideas on how to narrow down if one port is leaking worse than the others? I don't think it's the manifold to up-pipe connection, and the y-pipe bellows and firewall insulation look clean.

You're losing boost pressure. I'd pull the manifolds and install manifold gaskets.

Yeah they probably won't seal 100% even when it's warmed up. Those are leaking a little more than I like to see.

I just did mine too but I replaced the manifolds also. They're not too much

Thanks... Do any of ya'll happen to know the PNs for the bolts, spacers, gaskets, and the manifold-to-u-pipe bolts? Is that all I'll need, or do you think the manifolds themselves are warped past saving?

All I've found is this: Exhaust manifold gaskets: 6c3z 9448

Here's the up pipe bolt and nut part numbers. Not sure on the manifold bolts. The manifolds will be fine.
W300013 (Ford Hardware PN)---------------------------------Y-Pipe Bolt (Long 4 Required)*

W300006 (Ford Hardware PN)---------------------------------Y-Pipe Bolt (Short 2 Required)*

W300051 (Ford Hardware PN)---------------------------------Y-Pipe nut (6 Required)*
