    just bought a 2010 f150 xlt 4x4 ext cab short bed with the 5.4l in it about a month ago. yesterday I noticed the pass side exhaust manifold is leaking pretty bad. I cant beleave how rusted the manifolds are. id like to upgrade to a set of stainless headers as well as a full dual exhaust not only to improve power/sound/mileage but to eliminate the common 5.4l manifold problems. has anyone done this before. what brand do u recommend as well as where to buy. thanks

    Summitracing.com has all kinds of exhaust and stuff for trucks. I have their aluminumized Gibson Cat back system. Sounds good, not loud. It's 5 years old, no rust. Bolted right up. Shop for manifolds or headers Online. I bought manifolds for my old 5.8 for $106 with free shipping. Advance wanted $90 a piece for them. Make sure headers will bolt up to stock cross over with the cats and O2 sensors. Ford sometimes wants $1,000 for that pipe. Then have the gall to charge you for each O2 sensor x 4 on some.

  3. Unless it was a private sale or you took it marked "as is", under New York law you have a warranty for so many miles or days depending on price you payed, age and milage.
