Replace up pipes with River city's and great time to do the down pipe but I used aFe.

Don't know the mileage but might as well replace the EGT sensor coming off up pipe with cab off.

Also have you thought about replacing the manifolds?

Here's their web site of goodies:

Research your vin number, ford put out tens of thousands of engines in the beginning without valve guides. Went cheap to save money put the cost on consumer until they got too many complaints. There weren't enough to warrant a recall left the consumer on their own. I SPEAK TO FROM EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!
