exhaust and intake manifold swap?


Old Time Jeeper
1980 cj5 258ci straight 6, 31x10.50's. Partial Teamrush iginition upgrade, MC 2150 Carb. 4.0 head swap, factory header. I call him "Eugene".

Dad's jeep when he raced in the 70's. Cj2 running gear, ford 300 cu in 6 cyl with 3 deuces. Fiberglass model T body and hand laid fiberglass hood. welded 5.38 gears and beer keg fuel tank. see avatar
Wife's: Black 04' Liberty with all the bells and whistles.
So sa you can is from my profile. We have a 80 CJ5 with stock AMC 258 i6 / 4.2l cu in engine.
Simplicity under the hood is my desire. so what's left of the air pump tubes is still in place. I would like to install a header, but after market headers are expensive. I have a buddy wiith a 97 TJ and noticed it has a factory header. So my question is will any of the post 80 exhaust manifolds fit my AMC 258 i6 / 4.2l ? I also would like to find an aluminum intake as well, but retain the carter 2bbl carb.
Ideas anyone?
On eBay you can find used Clifford intake manifolds for $AMC 150 .

Used headers aren't so good cause they rust big-time and crack.

AMC 258 i6 / 4.2l and 4.0 heads are different. Both intake and headers.
