    Can anyone tell me if Ford had a recall on the exhaust manifolds for the 5.4 motors, I replaced the ones on my 08' just about 6 months ago and now my 09' needs them but now I;m looking at another 1200.00, I think Ford should cover these. :yow!:

    $1200 seems steep! take it to a local garage. the manifolds are like $150 a piece for a/m and then get stud kit, $100, most shops should replace them for 150-200 a side.

    Thay are fairly easy to do. Just did a v 10 6 out of the 10 studs had rotted off on a 2008. Done a ton of the 5.4s I only charge a few hours a side max most are 2 to 3 hrs a side Just hope they dont use pos aftermarket manifolds if you need them.

    Just did mine last week. Both sides. All but one stud broke. And I wouldnt call it "easy" by any means. More like a raging pain in the ass.... Now my 7.3 needs them too. FML.
