I will be cringing with ever bolt as I take out
A previous owner installed a POS Banks exhaust manifold that now cracked. I am soaking the bolts with penetrating oil every night. Other “car” forums say cast iron is better because it won’t crack as easily. I don’t care as much about performance as I do reliability. Both manifolds below have the flex tube on 1 and 6. What is the general consensus of the Jeep forum advantages/disadvantage of cast Iron vs. Stainless?
