Need recommendation for replacement exhaust manifold

Hi, Everyone -

I'm new to the forum.

My 1995 XE-V6 Hardbody failed smog and is now hard down with a warped and cracked right side exhaust manifold. I've just learned that the OEM part has been discontinued and the dealership told me there are no new ones anywhere in the US.

Does anyone have any recommendations on an aftermarket brand? A couple of folks have frowned at the latest quality of Dorman. The mech at the machine shop suggested buying a pair of headers but I don't think it would be wise to mismatch with one side headers-only and I definitely don't want to tackle the left side.

Welding has also been suggested but I do not want to go that route. All I want to do at this point is reassemble the right side with the highest quality aftermarket cast iron manifold I can find and then get it smogged so I can drive it when I need it. This truck is my go-to vehicle only when I need a pickup. Otherwise it sits on the side of the driveway gathering dust and cobwebs.

Thanks for your assistance.
