Well go buy two because its going to fail. If your looking for a used one just check your local scrap metal bin.

They're about $110 shipped on ebay... If you go that route, you don't have to post an embarrassing WTB thread

He stated in his intro thread that he wants one to use for a reference to build one from scratch. I am hoping that is why he really wants it and does not actually plan on using it on his car.

yeah we all know they are crap but i cant find that exact style. and like it was stated above i am just looking to get one for reference so i can build a good version of it with the wastegate moved to the collector instead of one exhaust pipe for better flow and simply a better look.
if anyone has found one on ebay that is like the one i have posted the link to then please post the ebay link for me because im obviously doing something wrong. i have had no luck with my search for this particular style for the 1.8 BP

I have no idea what everyone's problem is. I have been running one for over four years now. I have a brace, as ALL turbo installs should have.

That manifold is great bang for the buck.

The one in that thread has been modified for the FE3... they don't come outta china looking like that.

I have a cracked one if you're interested, I don't think its moved much from stock, as I have a brace like begi uses... but idk for sure, (It cracked during a 600 mile trip w/ no down pipe)

I think you misunderstood. I was trash talking everyone else. You actually seem to know what you're doing.
