I am actually not going to replace the manifold or remove them. There are replacement flaps which is the cheapest way to fix the problem. I am just going to be replacing the whole motor. I also have cylinder head issues and its just not worth paying $900 for a head from the dealer when I can buy a complete motor with 15k miles om it for $1,250.
