Just because it's old does not mean it's a rust bucket. My Z28 is only but one example of an old car looking just about as good as a new one.

if you get a set of used manifolds you will need pair of spreaders to push them back out in the middle. as soon as you pull them off the engine they curl inward and will never fit back on an engine.

napa sells manifolds that are OEM quality for a decent price.

pop off the manifolds and pop on some new ones from napa or carquest, etc. Then put on the new y-pipe. No big deal really.

As stated in the OP:

remove the old rusted bolts
There isn't, has never been, and never will be a mint 17 year old 280K truck that's rust free The bolts broke BECAUSE OF RUST!! Your car doesn't have almost 300K miles, does it? Are you new to cars or something?
