Exige naturally aspired, not engine mods and rarely tracked. 50k miles on the car. The exhaust slowly became louder over the last week. It is now sounding almost as open pipes. I can smell exhaust fumes over the manifold with the head over the engine. I took off the muffler and the cat and they are fine. Does the stock manifold or its gaskets crack easily? It is more difficult to get to these. If they are problematic, I will not bother taking the heat shield to inspect and just throw a new exhaust in.

Thank you.
