I've spent hours online looking for a cheap header to replace my stock manifold with multiple cracks and leaks. I've looked for about a year at my local U-pull lots and all the trucks I find either have 4 cylinders, have cracked manifolds like mine, or the manifold has already been removed. All the websites that show a picture of exactly what I'm looking for either don't stock a header for our trucks or are out of stock. Finding one for under $200 would be great, but that seems to be a "pipe" dream. My truck isn't fancy, it's a work truck. I'm not looking for anything fancy, but I'm pretty sure that replacing it with another stock cast manifold will just be putting a bandaid on the problem. If anyone has purchased a header that fit and worked well and it was reasonably priced, please let me know.
Thanks folks!

Post the OEM part# for the stock manifold and I can do some digging around for one or perhaps another alternative for you.

Check craigslist in northern Colorado, there’s a guy selling a new one, can’t remember if it’s cast iron or fabbed header.

Sorry, it's an '04 Colorado with 3.5 automatic. OEM #12571601
I live in Savannah Georgia, so I'm pretty sure shipping from Northern Colorado would probably double the price. I'll look though. If it's $50, it might still be a deal if he will ship.
Thanks,

The first one is for a 4 cylinder and I can't find any information on the second one. I appreciate your efforts, but I have a 5 cylinder 3.5.

Great! Thanks! I prefer the one that's actually tubing and not just cast like the stock manifold.
I sure appreciate the help.

Let us know if you do purchase it and install it. Perhaps supply us with pictures and any pointers for the install as well as rate the header good or not so good. Good luck.

If it's not cracked, would you min getting an estimate to ship it to 31410?
That would be great.
