2.5L sputtering

Over the last few weeks i've noticed a sputtering when I accelerate and initially start my car. The noise is coming from the engine bay, and I believe it to be an exhaust leak, i'm just unable to pinpoint its location.

Any tips, or thoughts?
If you need any further info, feel free to ask, and thanks in advance!

And i'm assuming them being loose would cause the leak and loss of acceleration, correct?

Sorry for my lack of mechanical knowledge i'm workin' on it...

Yes that is one area then where the head pipe mates to the exhaust manifold flange is another.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the bolts I need to tighten?

Those maybe but also check the ones on the header. It goes from those bolts your looking at to the motor.
