Ferrari 355 exhaust manifolds

hi all, I am looking for a pair of good used, or refactored exhaust manifolds for the 355 1995 series. Any recommendations where I could find them?

thanks
Erik

There are a couple of salvage yards in the UK that might be able to supply them.

Boxer's suggestion will be the least expensive. Ferrari UK also carries parts for the European market and you could probably get them there.

Thanks for all good advice. One more question: how damaging are cracked manifolds? Is it better not to drive the car anymore until they are replaced? I hear a lot of different stories.... :-?
Thx
Erik

I would not drive the car with crack manifolds. Not worth the risk in my book.

You may be able to weld it as a temporary measure.

I agree with Stradale. I'd take them off and bring them to a welding shop.
