Have You Seen This Part?

It's an illusive part, not because the proper Exhaust Manifold to fit my 1999 Honda Civic LX is really that hard to find; it's illusive because California emission standards require that the exhaust manifold for my car has to have a place for an O2 sensor. The O2 sensor fits in that hole on the top of the manifold. Actually, the manifold that fits in my car could come from any of the following Honda Civics:
1996 HONDA CIVIC DEL SOL: S L4 - 1.6L
1996 HONDA CIVIC: CX L4 - 1.6L
1996 HONDA CIVIC: DX L4 - 1.6L
1996 HONDA CIVIC: HX L4 - 1.6L
1996 HONDA CIVIC: LX L4 - 1.6L
1997 HONDA CIVIC DEL SOL: S L4 - 1.6L
1997 HONDA CIVIC: CX L4 - 1.6L
1997 HONDA CIVIC: DX L4 - 1.6L
1997 HONDA CIVIC: HX L4 - 1.6L
1997 HONDA CIVIC: LX L4 - 1.6L
1998 HONDA CIVIC: CX L4 - 1.6L
1998 HONDA CIVIC: DX L4 - 1.6L
1998 HONDA CIVIC: HX L4 - 1.6L
1998 HONDA CIVIC: LX L4 - 1.6L
1999 HONDA CIVIC: CX L4 - 1.6L
1999 HONDA CIVIC: DX L4 - 1.6L
1999 HONDA CIVIC: LX L4 - 1.6L
2000 HONDA CIVIC: CX L4 - 1.6L
2000 HONDA CIVIC: DX L4 - 1.6L
2000 HONDA CIVIC: LX L4 - 1.6L


Yes, this is a desperate cry for anyone who has this part to contact me because I am sick of dealing with Craigslist flakes and I need my car to pass smog. I have a friend who is willing to attempt welding my cracked manifold, and in all likelihood he will pull it off amazingly, but the problem will probably come back and a simple replacement would be the easiest option...you would think. At any rate, if you or anyone you know has seen this part PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know how I can acquire it for under a couple hundred dollars. That is the other option and I REALLY don't want to drop a few Benjamins on a stupid part, just so I can pass smog.
