94' 2.5L exhaust manifold gasket replacement

The exhaust manifold gasket is leaking. Would it be easier to remove the intake when doing the gasket seeing how it all tangled up with the header? And I would like to do a compression check on the motor. What should the compression be at on each cylinder. Around 160psi or so?

Thanks
Jay

There is no exhaust manifold gasket. It's metal on metal. Check the torque on the bolts/studs and check for cracks in the manifold itself.

I'm possitive... I'm alss possitive you didn't get the gasket at the dealer. They are available aftermarket though. Let me know if you find one when you pull the manifold off.

Maybe you could also point out the exhaust manifold gasket in this image.

I've replaced exhaust manifolds on an '85 and a '97 2.5L. Neither required a gasket.
