Intake manifold and Exhaust manifold/headers

I have a 93, 4.0L, manual wrangler my exhaust manifold is leaking and I plan on replacing it. Since I have to take off the intake manifold to do this I have afew questions.

1. Is there a after market Intake manifold worth putting on?

2. If there isnt is it worth taking it to a machine shop to have it opened alitted and smoothend?

3. Is it worth getting a good set of headers or just stick with oem style?

1. No
2. No
3. Stay stock, technically its a header anyway. Many on here have used one like this with good results (including myself):

I ended up using the included gasket, but hindsight being what it is, I'd recommend getting a felpro gasket instead of the included one. I haven't had any issues yet with the gasket included, but the felpro is much better quality.

2. If there isnt is it worth taking it to a machine shop to have it opened alitted and smoothend? ~eh........no

3. Is it worth getting a good set of headers or just stick with oem style? Yes, I have had good luck with Edlebrock headers. Stay away from the el cheapo eBay specials. Tend to crack./[quote]

Yeah get the feltpro. I had an major exhaust manifold leak after get a rebuilt engine installed. The mechanic said it could be his install that my exhaust manifold was warped. Well I replaced the gaskets (with feltpro) last week and the leak is gone. Just make sure you torque it properly!
