Cracked 5 cylinder manifold

I am looking at a 4000Q with a cracked/blown manifold/gasket. The dealer
and independent places quote about C$800.00 for repair in optimal
case (just machining the manifold, replacing the gaskets). They were
mentioning warped manifolds and pulled studs at cylinder 5. I can
see things getting expensive if the head needs to be pulled and/or replaced.
What is the experience, what do they do for repair, how long repairs last,
how much it does it cost, and when showed up first the problem. The
car I am looking at has 120kmiles.

Thanks for your time, Peter
