Well I found out that I cracked my passenger side stock ported exhaust manifold and was looking for other options, other than repeating the same issue with another factory manifold or buying a full profab up pipe and manifolds set since I already have Ricks tow flow up pipes. Only two options I found where Steed speed manifolds with are very, very expensive or AFE manifolds. I found out that AFE had a overstock sale going on, so I ordered a pair. They definitely will not flow what Profabs manifold do, but they should suit my needs fine since I will not turning the RPM needed for that kind of flow.
This is photo is of the AFE driver side manifold against the factory passenger and then of the passenger side installed for a test fit with my compound turbo mount. Granted if I was starting from scratch, I would go with the other direction, but I figured I would share a budget version that I hope works well.

Fyi I just bought a new dorman driver's side for $75. It's the same design as an lml and is the same part # for all generations.

did yours come with a heat shield? i just got a pair. the driver side had no heat shield but the passenger did. what did you think of the bolts they gave you?

I bought the pass side a while back as a quick replacement. Came with a heat shield. Thought the bolts supplied were ridiculous and didn’t use them. Can’t comment on driver side from dorman.
