Default Are stock 3800 exhaust manifolds worth keeping?

did a motor job on a 03 park ave, im stripping the core for its usable parts... are the manifolds worth holding on to or let them be scrapped?

Is it plastic? Not really worth much maybe 15 bucks, I had a couple aluminum ones and I ended up scrapping them after trying to get 50 bucks for them online for months

No not worth any money, not bad to keep if you ever do another 3800 and it happens to have a cracked one on it

After stripping my 3800 I am slowly realizing the parts off it are worth nothing.

nah toss em out...the only thing id want is the front cover and if the motor ate a bearing then the pump housing is already scored.

not as bad as the old buicks but the covers do wear out and bypass pressure internally

You can modify the rear manifold by turning the #6 towards the crossover and sell it to someone that wants to turbo their car. Easy $100. Other than that, like everyone said, they're useless.

Once it's turned and welded. It's like a P-log, but I take back that $100. More like $75 maybe. I didn't realize those stainless P-logs were so cheap. They're only $139.

No ? maybe?

I say just toss everything that isn't plastic into your scrap bin. Sometimes I wish I could toss my entire 3800 car into the scrap bin
