Manifold removal

I have the E99 and I am showing signs of serious rust on the manifolds around where the up pipes connect. To my knowledge everything is factory so I am wanting to replace everything with new(or like new). I know the bolts on all the up pipe stuff will have to be cut off but my worry is the bolts holding the manifolds to the head it self. Are all of these gonna break off and force me to have the heads drilled/tapped etc... or do you think these will back onout? I know its kind of a hard question to answer since no two trucks are the same. Anything I can do to help me out? Thanks for any help.

bp blaster for 2-3 days and pray...and have a heli coil ready

if they're not leaking then rust is normal as they're cast iron and take ALOT of heat.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

Surpriseingly enough I have not seen any signs of leaking. I just know its a matter of time and am dreading it.

I think you are worried about nothing.... the manifolds are really thick. Only failures I've personally seen on them are where they expand and break the bolts on #7 cylinder from excessive high EGT's.

I don't think I would attempt to remove them unless I had the engine on a stand... to me it's not worth it, especially if they arent leaking

I have a good (used) set of manifold. Now I got to get some up pipes and wait for the day. Getting droke bolts out a head is only thing that scares me. If something can go wrong,its gonna go wrong with me.

I won't fix it till it breaks, I just like to be ready when it does.
