    Going to need a little more info on this. What is it on? And where do all the pipes go. From what little I can see it looks like it may be part of the anti-smog system. The pipe looks to be copper but I am think that soldering it would not last long because of the heat. Now if you know some one in the heating and air business I bet they could patch it. Finding a way to patch it may be your best bed. From the looks of it I am wanting to say that is going to be a dealer only item meaning you will have to pay 5 prices for it from the dealer. Check you local junk yard. And use a lot of WD-40 or something on these tubing nuts they look awful rusted. Goo luck

    That is an 'air injection manifold(pipe) ', and it is a part of your emission control system.

    It carries air to the exhaust manifold to burn off unburned fuel.

    I had mine on a 2.8 v6 chevy break or corode, heck they were 20 years old. Anyway I picked up a set at Car Quest Auto parts. I would think Napa or most parts places would have them and they were reasonably priced I thought

    Yes, the auto parts stores sell replacements. If you want, go to a mechanic or welding shop and they can BRAZE the pieces together. Check it out both ways, price wise.

    Have it tig welded. If you try hard enough you can twist :realmad: off the other nuts and you will need the exhaust manifolds to :angry:
