I would like to replace mine, but the bolts look so rusted I think I would need to take it to a garage to have it done.

I have to replace mine too on my 4.2L.
I'm hoping to find a header, though...

Sounds wierd, but PB Blaster while it sits is good.
Also, if you get some good gloves...it will come apart easier while it's hot.
You don't have to do it all. Just break the bolts loose while the engine/manifold is still hot.
