65 Tripower manifolds

Hi all, I am trying to build a lighter front end GTO and plan to go with aluminum heads, move the battery to the trunk, etc. However, I would also like to swap out the Iron manifold to an aluminum. However, i cannot find anyone who makes it. Any ideas?

thanks

Alan

Plus, the aluminum manifolds have sketchy quality control. Some are ok, others are absolute junk.
