Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your question today.

 

Headers yes may be the best option for you if you keep on having to replace the manifold. Cast iron manifolds on some vehicles can be tough as for some reason on the 5.0L motor I see more crack than most other vehicles. Getting a nice set of headers would be your best bet in my mind.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
