    Looks like they ran out of them... That sounds like a reasonable excuse for the 4x higher price to me..... Must be very rare now lol

    Actually the drivers side Eldo manifold IS a dying breed. They are prone to cracking so the used supply is just about nil. Reproductions run about $400 when you can get them.

    There are two pairs of non eldo exhaust manifolds for sale that have been on craigslist here for at least 3 years - for $60/pair. Someday I may pick up a set of these "hen's teeth" for selling purposes. I find that the non-eldo manifolds are harder to find, since they are in more demand for caddy engine transplants.

    Welding up a cracked set of exhaust manifolds by a professional welder, I bet would cost no more than a $100. They make the high nickel welding rods, and even mig wire now that can effectively weld cast iron with only a little pre-heating.
