so ive got this terreible exhaust leak at the spa manifold to the head and ive put new bolts in with washers and still is there. I can feel the air leaking out on the underside all across the manifold. I am not sure on how to fix this problem..... the manifold to head gasket is new ish should I replace it or run two of them?

haven't touched it. I drive it once a week with this terrible leak. just cuz I miss the car. the temps here are to cold and im not going to work on the car when it comes to drilling and tapping. im waiting for the tax return to go into my account and im going to drive it to a performance shop to do it for me.

I wouldnt bother.... but ou can if you want. Tightening it is going to increase the needed vacuum to open in.
