Replacing stock manifold on a super tight budget

I have the stock manifold on a 2001 v6/3.9L and it has a leak. Without having to modify the whole exhaust, is there a cheap/reliable alternative for headers that would fit the stock exhaust and any idea of the cost of reasonable labor for a mechanic doing it on the side? Thank you

Sorry man, when it comes to exhaust it gets pricey uses you get lucky on a deal.

I have heard that the manifolds on the 94-98 are actually headers and they can go on a 99-04 setup and are better than the stockers. Look into this to confirm.

As for labor it depends on location, parts, etc

I went through two stock driver side headers due to them EXPLODING ! ! Dam pipe bombs. How bad is the crack? Sometimes the cheapest way to go is to braze the crack and save for a decent pair . If you do this, drill small holes on both sides of the crack first to prevent the crack from running

The crack is extremely small,but I don't want to do more damage with the leak. I don't know much about this stuff, but I thought the leak could damage the engine and exhaust system if left leaking. I just do suburb driving and occasionally some 20 mile highway trips but I don't beat on it since I can't afford to lose what gets me around.
