Like the title says, How hard to pull the Stock Exhaust Manifold while in the car?

Specifically the Left (Driver's Side) one in my 1976 Firebird, with a Pontiac 350 in it.

 

Got an exhaust leak between it and the head, hoping new gasket will fix it.

Not positive on a stock manifold but if I remember right, Im able to wiggle my drivers side header in and out if I remove the starter. Passenger side header requires the engine to be lifted to get it in/out. A stock manifold may be easier to get out but Ive never tried. Id think worst case scenario youd just have to unbolt the engine mounts ind lift the engine a bit.
