Default Urgent! Need help finding hard to find Civic VX manifold!

So I failed smog test and my exhaust manifold must be replaced.
I only have a few days left on my temporary registration and I'm having a hard time finding an aftermarket VX manifold. They have a unique design with the catalytic converter attached directly to the manifold. The OEM manifolds are discontinued.


If anyone knows of a good aftermarket VX manifold please post a link in your comment! Thank you so much in advance

I just put on one of these on my 96 DX

Is that what you need? I don't know a VX from a CX but I know I have a DX

This part is actually still available in Canada: Toronto Honda Parts - Parts List ... I don't think you'll like the price, though. At least it's in $CAD.

However, I suggest car-part.com who have used VX manifolds for under $100.

That's the Canadian /Federal version. I need the California version. Sorry forgot to mention that. But thank you

No if you enter VX on that site it will say it doesn't fit. The exhaust manifold I'm looking for is made exclusively for the California emissions model VX. I've been looking for days! Thank you but it's not the one I'm looking for.

Car-part.com
It is a link to different junk yards. I searched using the 90210 zip code and a few came back.

Maybe take it to an exhaust shop in your local area and ask what they reccomend. They may suggest getting an aftermarket manifold and adding another catalytic converter. Take it to a professional, majority of us have no idea what hydrocarbons even are because the rest of the country is exempt from that nonsense
