Day B4 I drive back to UK my MF commits suicide!! EVO X

I've had hairline crack on the 2nd branch from the right on my Evo X manifold for a few months now, I knew a new MF was on the cards but so far its been holding up pretty well for the last few months.

Normally I would just use this as the perfect excuse to buy that up graded MF that Ive been planning to buy but.....I just spent nearly a grand this month on new brakes (really needed them too) and was looking forward to driving back to UK to spend easter with my familly that I havent seen for almost a year before I go to Gan.

Today my car all of a sudden started sounding like a diesel tractor

Got my car in the air for look at the exhaust (hoping) but... yep, its the MF thats blowing really badly!! I was gonna buy a new MF next month too gutted.

Looks like I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and buy a new MF instead of coming home

Anyone selling a MF (not stock) for a reasonable price???
