Exhaust manifold or turbo scrap noise

I am a sucker because I keep buying money pits. I just bought a 2000 american eagle and after replacing the radiator I hear tapping sound when the engine is under load. sounds fine when idling, I did see a little gap where the exhaust manifold get bolted. I tried removing the manifold and turbo, but just strip the head of one of the manifold bolts. I guess I have to pay big bucks and take to cummins. Being the big time jerry rigger I am, i wrap some bailing wire around the gap and did reduce the noise so I can go camping this weekend. Thought I mention that for entertainment purposes.

anyone have any experience with replacing the exhaust manifold on a cummins 8.3?

That exact subject was a month long discussion under the Cummins section of this site several weeks back. A "search" should find it.
