Dude, I would just get a new header. No reason to spend money that you don't need to. A header is probably 10 bucks, a new 1 piece set up might cost 50 bucks on up. Save yourself the 40 extra dollars and use towards tires or other necessities. Or upgrades since you seem to want to get a few aftermarket goodies so your car isn't so "stock".

stick it in a vice, use a butane torch to heat it up real good and use a nut-driver to put inside it and straighten it out. works real good!

yeah, ive bent my manifold on my TC3.. one of them i was able to bend back.. but it was nothing like that.

i have an extra manifold pipe just for that reason.

also, look on ebay.. "NTC3" and "nitro TC3" i usually see 2 or 3 buy it now's cheaper than what you would pay in the store.. with shipping.

i just purchaced a new manifold pipe/muffler combo with silicon and gasket, for like 20 bucks.. thats cheap.

replace it.. or atleast atempt to repair it.. most RC shops stock that pipe.
