How long does it take to replace a header

My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Depending on the space available in the engine bay, an exhaust manifold replacement can take anywhere from an hour to an entire day. Many vehicles require the engine to be removed from the vehicle in order to remove the exhaust manifolds from it. I would recommend consulting with a professional to have this replacement performed. If you would like to have your vehicle inspected for any exhaust related issues, consider YourMechanic, as a certified professional can come to your home or office to [inspect your exhaust system]https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/exhaust-system-inspection) for you.
