HANS: the links are broken, no, exhaust is exiting in the rear. Engine looks normal . My temp gauge did look like that.
that means your manifolds are not cracked...thats a good sign.
You need to replace the gaskets though.
On my current 93 SSEi They have been replaced twice due to the exact same failure you are looking at, same symtoms.
Twice in 100,000.
I forget if the SC gasket is required to change as well, but at least the LIM gaskets, and the TB gasket
