Have you got the lower out aswell? Might be easier for the welder to bolt the manifold onto the lower and weld it complete so it doesnt warp and is flush.

I had some need-it replacing a worn hard to get to welsh plug on my skyline, they do hold up to heat and alike and do infact last years.

Exactly the same thing happened to mine!!!

Cost me $50 to get it welded and have the face machined true.........No big deal......Although I did panic at first and various wreckers were quoting $350 for the upper!!!!!
