well thats kind of odd...no one really uses there stock exhaust manifold on a turbo build up...are you going to use the stock exhaust manifold...well if you do then your going in the wrong direction...your better off getting an after-market manifold...and working your way from there...good luck!!!

lol i didnt think he said he was going to use the stock exhaust manifold but he coul have edited it....anyways if the noise its making now is bearable then dont buy another one if your gonna go turbo so soon anyways.

I used to have a dc ceramic 4-2-1 header....it cracked where the "y' shape takes place...go to your local muffler shop and theyll fix it for 40 bucks.

the valves are very hot due to being in the direct flow of the exhaust. when the cold air hits the hot valve it causes it to cool to quickly and become brittle. this in turn leads to cracked valves and maybe even cracked valve seats. fix the crack or bad gasket.

cold air will not damage the exhaust valve, if it did then the cool air coming into the cylinder from the intake would cause damage to the valves, imagine how much damage would be caused if this were the case when a super cold nitrous charged air hit the cylinders. plus since air is exiting under great force from the exhaust it will not seep backwards anyway.
