You can replace them with aftermarket headers or weld patch the one that got cracked and that's what I did on my v6

They work but you'll have a dead o2 sensors sticking out of them and you'll have to open up the two bolt holes on the flanges so the studs on the headers will fit through them

yeah, the 94-98 headers are just as good as the aftermarket shorties. From what I've read atleast.
I want to get mine painted. Perhaps blue so they match the engine block.
