You can make your own.  Piece of aluminum plate use your manifold for a template. build some risers out of the same plate.  Common table saw will cut plate.  Aluminum chips go every ware.  My npartner in crime built this manifold.

Right! I forgot you'd done this! Yeah I paid 400 for a name. Was that wise? Don't answer, lol.

Here's hoping this is financially salvageable for you. Might have to slightly discount it and just see that loss as the cost of a lesson learned.

About 35 years ago I bought an Offy intake assuming it was for the Pinto I knew I would eventually own. It was only $5.95 in a thrift store. 25 years later I finally got the Pinto and found out the intake was for a Vega. I looked on Ebay and the last two sold for $100.

I quickly listed the intake hoping that I would make my 15+ times investment. I listed it with a $9.99 starting cost thinking it surely would get bid up. Nope. It sold for $9.99. Cry Then there was the time I saw and Offy 258 4 bbl. intake for $14.99 in the same thrift store. Back then I decided it was too "iffy" that I'd ever own the AMC car to use it. Unhappy A real "damned if I do and damned if I don't" case if I ever saw one.

Oh dear, that was me. I didn't realise I'd be such a bad influence on you Tom! I got lucky with mine and found it on eBay, with postage to Australia included it was about $400 AUD. 

I had seen them listed at White Owl Speed, but didn't buy as it was too rich for me.
