Default 1.8 cast iron manifold with t3 flange

1.8 cast iron manifold with t3 flange
Recently purchased a turbo kit from a friend of mine who recently blew his engine. He has the 1.6, whereas I have a 1.8. Only thing I couldn't get from him was his exhaust manifold.

I've been looking all around for a 1.8 turbo manifold with the t3/t4 flange made of cast iron. So far all I've been able to find one by BEGI starting at $400..

Anyone know where I can find one for less??
Thanks

Begi is the only one. You will not find a new one for less.

You will not find a new quality manifold for cheaper then that. The sooner you realize that and just accept it, the better.

If you won't be able to afford $400 until July you have no business turbocharging your car. It will break you. Not trying to be mean, just telling you to watch for all of the unforeseen expenses that will sneak up on you.
