Are you referring to the risers as knees?
What is your definition of expensive?
As far as the manifolds go, there are aluminum versions and cast iron versions.

The stock 496 rises are stainless. They should last a long time. Take a look at them before you buy new ones

Yes, the manifolds are cast metal and they corrode,but the stainless risers last a lot longer.
