Replace the manifold is easiest way, don't think the pipes are soldered into place.

Just cut the corroded stubs leaving about a couple of mm protruding then sharpened up the flat tip of a small screwdriver and used it to tap the stub edge inwards and then downwards. It was easy to cut the metal of the tube this way carefully so as not to damage the ally bore wall.
Once cut through, the stub just pulled out.
5 minute job

Did the same with mines today....replaced with stainless steel tubing.
Heated the manifold to remove the corroded pipes.
