Tips on installing stock exhaust manifolds

The replacement 3.2 engine is up and running in my 2001 Project Boxster, I have a small window of time this afternoon to install the stock exhaust manifolds back on and having a bit of trouble installing them.

I have new manifold metal gaskets, but trying to lift up the manifold with the cat, then align the gasket, and then start to bolt them up is turning out to be more than just a quick afternoon job.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to make this a bit easier? I searched and only found info on installing the cheap eBay headers.

I think I did too. Brian, you can actually glue the gasket to the manifold or to the head using Permatex Copper gasket spray. Treat it like contact cementl spray both pieces and let it get tacky then position the gasket in the proper place.

Sorry it's been so long getting back to you. I'm a slow thinker and it finally came to me in the middle of the night.

I have installed stainless studs in the outer thread holes, just hold the manifold in place & thread on a bolt & it will support itself.
