Default I've looked and looked...dead ends everywhere...square top intake mani

So...being new to the miata world, I kinda missed the train on the non USDM intake manifold. Problem is, I want one really bad lol

Does anyone know where I can buy one that isn't going to be $500? Like a japanese exporting company or something like that. Or maybe one of you guys has one you'd be willing to part with?

Either way, let me know!

Thanks

Its insured and needs a signature for delivery. Next option with tracking was at least double the money, which negates any advantages of me getting these things cheap.

I know from one at 30 miles from my home. I would need to ask the seller for the price again since he asked too much money the first time I talked to him.

At my local junk yard, there's at least 10! And I'm in a relatively small city. I've been to junk yards in the outskirts of Miami and they had whole sections full of miatas
