Passenger side exhaust manifold

Can it be taken off of the engine without taking the engine out of the truck? My truck will not make more than 5 lbs of boost, and my EGT's are through the roof even when empty. So I made a boost leak tester and hooked it up. I could hear air rushing out on the passenger side of the engine. When you put your hand down near there you could feel a cold patch in the heat so I am thinking the manifold may have a crack in it or something. So back to my initial question, I know it will be a huge PITA but is it possible? I plan to soak all of the bolts in PB for several days before I attempt removal. Thanks for any insight guys.

If you did a boost leak test, are you positive it's not the intake plenum? Maybe try the test with some diluted dish soap in a spray bottle and pinpoint the leak.

I am like 95% positive. I had a spray bottle and checked the boots, plenums, my boost gauge fitting, everything. With where the manifold is I could not see it well enough to test with the soapy water.

With my luck it will be incredibly difficult and I will break off at least one bolt in the head haha.

It's also not that bad to pull the engine if it comes down to it.

I'm half tempted to just pull it anyway. It would be a good chance to refresh it a bit and clean the engine bay and motor. Fix any leaks and put it back in. I figure just a weekend and the truck would be running again.
