replacing exhaust manifold

My passenger side exhaust manifold is very rusty and I feel that my ebv is getting a bad reading from the ebp if my manifold is letting air out of the tube or manifold itself. How would I go about replacing my manifold? Do I have to pull the motor?

Any suggestions are appreciated thank you!

Just pull all the bolts and replace it. It is a little harder when the motor is inside the truck but it can be done.

Manifolds rust, its what they do. They are pretty thick so I wouldn't think about changing it out unless I was positive it was leaking. The problem with your ebpv could very well be the pedestal, sensor, or ebp tube being damaged/ clogged. Is you valve staying closed or closing while you drive?

Yes it is staying closed during driving and will close and open while driving which is getting rather annoying.

I'd clean the sensor and tube before a manifold.
or just unplug the dang thing from the pedestal

That's exactly what my 99 was doing anytime it would be below about 30 degrees outside. I could never build boost because the valve would also close at just the right time and my fuel mileage went down also. I ended up putting on a non-ebpv pedestal and the high flow outlet on the turbo and no more problems. That was some of the best money I ever spent on that truck. And I will be putting the same parts on my 01 this week.

do you recommend a non ebv pedestal and outlet? i know it will get m better flow but is there anything really noticable?

i ask because i know the combo is about $200 and a good amount of work

I would try cleaning the tube with an air hose and spraying the sensor out with some carb cleaner before I started turning wrenches on the tube, with the rust build up I've heard its a P.I.T.A.

so beneath the sensor where the line begins try blowing air down that opening?
