Manifold replacement

I know there are a ton of threads on cracked manifold replacement but all of the conversations transition into header b-pipe and Uprev installs. I'm having a hard time justifying to the Mrs. why we need to spend $1500 on performance parts for her daily driver with 150k miles when I can install pacesetter manifolds for less than $400.

If I were to install manifolds the pacesetter seem to be the most popular?
Can anyone share their experience with these or if they recommend better?

If I were to bite the bullet and do JBA long tubes and B-pipes is the uprev absolutely necessary?
Also... from the abundance of posts I've read it sounds like those installing the PRT bpipes over the
cajun experience less fluctuation in AFR?

Also... I'm assuming I should replace both the A/F and 02 sensors yes?

Thoughts?

Thank you in advance

I ended up purchasing Walker 16478 and 16479 direct replacement manifolds from rockauto as they were a phenomenal price.
$320 and $330 and if you look around you can find a 5% off code

It seemed the eastern and walker were the best possibilities.... any of the others I looked at scared me based upon my searches.

Still waiting on these to arrive but plan on tackling this project this weekend I'll let you know how it goes and quality.

Other parts I purchased
I'm replacing the A/F sensors with 2 BOSCH 17204
Genuine Nissan manifold and exhaust Gaskets

I'm about $800 in right now.... Granted headers would be great but if I accomplish the task for half the price I will be happy.
