Hi. What problem are you having in locating a manifold? I can send you a link for one from Napa so you can see it if you would like.
That intake that you showed me a picture of is off a 3100 series engine. It can be from multiple years. The Napa intake that they sell looks identical to the one in your picture.
What was not the same about the ones you purchased?
I see the pictures which appear to be from 2 different engines. It is hard for me to see every port and the dimensions of the intake without physically being there. Some aftermarket intakes will fit several model years and may require a plug, or cap to block off a port or something along those lines. The Napa manifold fits the 3100 engine from year 1996-1999.

Ok. Have you considered going to, or calling, a salvage yard and possibly looking at all the vehicles with a 3100 and see if you could match one up?
Can I have the entire 17 digit vin number?
All my searches come up to the same intake. Have you called a dealer with your VIN number? Even if you dont purchase the intake from them, they can give you the part number which you can then cross to get an aftermarket one.
I'll look more into this and get back to you later.
Hi. Have you been able to find the correct manifold? I have been searching and my results keep coming up the same manifold. You may to consider going to a salve yard and trying to match something up.
