Question Tocoma exhaust manifold crack

I have a friend on a tight budget who has this question:

I have a 1997 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 with a 2.7 engine and a five speed transmission. My exhaust manifold has a large crack between the #2 and #3 exhaust runner.

1. What are the possible repercussions of just letting it go?

2. Should I have it replaced with the stock exhaust manifold or an after market header?

3. I there a preferred header for my Toyota?

I did some reading on the Internet, and the opinions are all over the place. It looks like the stock replacement will cost ~$225.00, whereas a header will cost ~$325.00.

Any help that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

1. worst case - fire

2. IMO stock manifolds are just fine. Any benefits for a header is minimal in your application.
