going to be hard to find but also the Monte Carlo has the 4.3 too
so keep a eye out on e bay for people selling those ?
Maybe give MIke at MIke Montes a call to see if he has any used ones ?

No the Buick - 231ci - 3.8L - V6 is not the same..

it seems they don't make the Tube style manifold anymore,
the Cast Iron ones can be found on mid-size cars and even full
size trucks, vans, astro, S-10's ----- with the
Chevy - 262ci - 4.3 - V6 -and- Chevy - 229ci - 3.8L - V6
"-"

but
some mods may be needed for the Cast manifolds.. don't know..
