Exhaust Manifold

Steve Brehm ,
Check the archives but I recently had my manifold machined flat ($30 cdn) and 
brazed to cover the cracks ($20).  The brazing should last and it won't 
disintegrate like the weld repair will.  The weld repair lasts good for a few 
years so perhaps thats all you want.  
The major work was getting off the manifold... since that identified how many 
broken exhaust studs which led to the head removal which identified a head 
crack between valves which led to a new rebuilt Audi head...
Anyway good luck... if you have no exhaust eaks now your studs are probably
