Are you talking about the exhaust manifold (hope not) being toast, or the exhaust riser?  Big difference.
Do you have any "before" pictures?

i'm talking about the solid pipe that connects the engine to the muffler.  i suppose that's the riser and not the manifold.

The “used to be solid pipe”? 👍🏻

Our exhaust riser was pretty bad, not that bad, but definitely time to replace.
CD had some off the shelf, but the size (lengths) were just a tad off.
But the price difference between off the shelf and custom made the decision easy.
I moved the Muffler box about 1" to port and the new riser fit like a charm.

in case anyone's interested now (or in the future).  out came the port head wall today...  came out rather easy.  i did have saw the door frame where it splines into the titled section at the top.  that sucks, but at least it was only one straight cut, so i should be able to fix it
