Alternative to Borla header?

Fellow Jeepers,

I want to replace my cracked exhaust manifold with
borla SS header. Problem is quadratec is saying that it would take atleast one month to get the part rom Borla.
So my questions are:

1) What is the other alternative? In case I go with OEM exhaust manifold what is the best place(
and cheap!) to buy it on the net?

2) Is it advisible to drive a jeep for cracked exhaust manifold for abt a month?
I heard that some kind of tapes are available which I can stick
temporary on the manifold. Any suggestions? The engine noise is pretty loud with the cracked header.

-Thanks in advance

Well of couse it will be loud, the engine sound and exhause gasses after compression and ignition are not being contained in the tubes down to the cat converter and out the muffler.

It is escaping right after combustion.
Sometimes people use straight b-pipes for racing that do not use a cat converter or muffler. Also loud as heck, but better performance.

Just don't go for inspection any time soon, but no worries. Just smoke and loud.
