Hello all, found a nice crack in my exhaust manifold (08 2.9) and I’ve been looking through threads here trying to find anyone who’s bought a cheaper manifold and how they’ve held up. Anybody here with say a $300 exhaust manifold (rockauto, Amazon, 1aauto etc.) holding up well a few years down the line?

or even anybody who went this route that did not last very long at all?

Also curious as to the longevity of the aftermarket manifolds. Have not heard of any failures looking through the same threads you did, but interested as I am assuming I will have to replace one eventually.
Maybe you can get a repair done, and it will hold for a while. I'd say if its a short term vehicle for you, try it if the cost is low enough. If you want to have the truck for several years, may as well bolt on a new part since you went though the trouble to get it off. Get a new O2 as well, while it is in your hands.
Dirtwarrior is a better welder than I am. I am rubbish at cast welding. Im lucky to make it stick, much less be air tight. :)
