Replacement Manifold

I need to replace my cracked exhaust manifold. This is my second replacement (original cracked, then Borla header cracked), so I would like a good quality unit and a good vendor to buy from. Any recommendations? I am going to go with one with the flex tubes on the ends. Quadrajet sells these for $250, and I have found what appears to be the same one from various Ebay vendors for $100. I am of the mindset that you get what you pay for, but is this the case here?

I would also like to get all new bolts and hardware. What size are the bolts, and where can I find these?

Thanks!

So long as the eBay header looks like this with the two steel expansion bellows (aka flex joints) that stop the cracking, you should be fine.

I used the cheapest ebay manifold with flex joints on my old sahara, and never had any problems, but I bought my own gasket.

$70 ebay cheapo with expansion joints and gasket worked great for me.
