you are right, that is a bad ass ride, but there is one thing i have to correct you on. they are headers not manifolds. the reason they are rusty is probably because he couldn't afford a nice pair of $400 ceramic coated ones so he opted for a pair of painted ones. unfortunatly the painted ones rust no matter what kind of paint you use

When you decide to correct someone, always make sure your correction is correct. Apparently unbeknownst to you, headers ARE exhaust manifolds. Tubular steel (generally speaking) instead of cast iron (again, generally speaking), but exhaust manifolds none the less.

Before you come back with an indignant response, go determine how to use a dictionary and look up manifold. As you were.
