v6 exhaust manifolds

Searching brought nothing for what I'm looking for. Is there somewhere other than Ford to buy regular manifolds? My driver side has a big crack on the engine side next to the collector. Like its been bent towards the wheel. Its throwing the flange for the y-pipe off on that side a little bit, not sitting flush. JB Weld didn't help. My only other idea is to try and pry it back then JB it again.
I was reading the Mustang forums to see if I could use those, but the O2 sensor is in the collector not y-pipe, so I don't think they would work.

Thanks In Advance.

SOLD the 96 in favor of a 97 ABS, TC, Sunroof

Correct. I just grabbed a pair out of the yard last week to be put on my car during the new engine build. Here are what they look like.



And in this picture below, from supercoupeperformance.com, you can see the earlier style on the left.

The junkyard had one for me, but after searching no one has posted sizes for the studs. Does anyone know the size(s)?
