Default Uppipe install does header need to be removed

Ok guys my gdspeed up pipe is almost in and I'm about to start prepping the pipe for install. I'm planning to do this only one time and do it right. Should I go ahead and plan to remove the exhaust manifold from the block? If not I would prefer to keep them on the car and save money on the gaskets because I know they are sealed up nicely. Regardless I'm going to header wrap the entire systems and hope to prt and polish the exhaust manifold.

Thanks,

J

You do not need to take the entire manifold system off. You can take the passenger side manifold off thats connected to the uppipe,block and crossover pipe.

How do you plan on P&Ping the exhaust manifold if you do not want to remove it?

Why not search and look up the countless write ups and instruction on how to swap an up pipe?

I don't know if it's required, but it certainly makes things a lot easier.
