exhaust manifolds for L4??

I can't find replacement OEM or even performance manifolds/headers for a 97 Ranger 2.3L, does anyone know where I could? I've checked eBay and all the usual parts websites I go to...

Try the local junkyard if there is one around you. I used to work at one as an inventory person and we put exhaust manifolds on the rack. So you never know they might have one.

yeah it all has to do with me figuring out if theres really something wrong with mine, I saw steam/smoke coming out of it it looked like it was cracked in between two of the pipes, or I might just be crazy, i'd liek to test it somehow

I need to know if this manifold will fit a 1997 ranger with the same engine...I can't find any for mine on Ebay, and from ford its listed at $700 some dollars, ridiculous price because they apparently don't manufacture that many of them...or something, I don't know what, but if anyone can tell me if that will fit okay, it'd be greatly appreciated!

That should work i dont see why it wouldnt cause all 2.3s and 2.5s are pritty much all the same. Only thing i can see not working is caue u got the dual plug head and mabye that metal inbetween interfering with the plugs of somethign on that side.
