Exhaust manifold

Dear all,

I've been told that I have a leaking exhaust manifold gasket (v6 engine). Apparently it is a pig to fix. The main symptom is a rattle when starting from cold, which goes as the engine warms and it seals. It does sound like it is perhaps blowing if it is idling and I quickly prod the accelerator.
Anybody had the gasket changed on a v6? I don't know if it is the front or rear manifold that is the problem, but I suspect the rear.
Thank you for you thoughts!
