Will you please describe the manifold damage? I just removed my exhaust manifold and I do not have any idea where that crack is.

I do not know if you saw this:

but I ended up pulling off the exhaust manifold while it was still attached to the first exhaust pipe in order to hammer a 13mm socket onto a stripped 14mm nut. I put it on a carefully-folded towel, but I did take a sledge hammer to it, and noticed a thin crack afterward.

I believe in doing things right, but I just put JB Weld on it. I hated doing that, but I did not even know if the crack went through the metal!
