Default WTB: cheap 1.6L intake manifold

I'm looking for a 1.6L intake manifold that I can hack, drill, and tap to try and fit a Jeep 4.0L throttle body to and a IAT sensor. Why cheap? Well this is either going to work great or it's going to be fucked when I'm done with it. I don't need any sensors, injectors, fuel rail, or any other crap that might be attached to it. If it's broken, cracked or been on fire that's ok too.

I have lots of jeep parts kicking around including about 4 or 5 jeep TBs' with all the sensors and connectors. It looks like I might only have to drill and tap 2 new holes. This way I'll have a cheap and common TB with TPS. It might give people running MS another option.

Which stroker kit are you running? Out here Comanchees in good condition bring a premium.

Its my own mix of cheap parts with all the machine work done in college.

mid 90's head ported, machined for small block Chevy Z-28 springs, 3 angle valve job, back cut valves

.060 4.0 block, 9.7:1 speed pro Hypereutectic pistons w/ coated skirts and custom dish, 4.2L jeep rods stress relived, and polished with ARP bolts, 4.2L 12 weight crank, crane cam (sorry i forget the specs right now), 2001 intake manifold, 60mm TB

It runs but it does not idle right. It might be the cam and computer not playing nice together or maybe an intake manifold leak. In the middle of working on that project i picked up a Miata and now I spend all my free time on that thing.

I've got an extra intake manifold. What do you consider cheap? I've got $40 in it and would like to get $40 back out of it and it would probably cost $15 or so to ship since it is kinda bulky.
