    Exhaust manifold problem - what is this?

    Anybody seen this before? What can I do to fix it - short of replacing the part? Will exhaust gas leak out from here, or is it contained by the clamp seal?

    Common as.

    Serveral fixes. Leave it till it gets a lot worse. Cut it off (not a fan of that). Have a machinist re-create the end bell out of stainless.

    I have done it this way and it is bullet proof.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll just keep it as is and see if it gets worse. Nice job on the SS sleve!

    Running a J-pipe? That doesn't seem to be happening much anymore since the 08+ mid-pipe came out.
