There isnt much heat in that area to kill the tree if you replace it with another. But try a universal aluminum manifold from Ebay if you are worried about heat.

The attraction of an aluminum manifold isn't really durability but not a bunch of unused, capped off ports. I just need to split four ways (in/booster/EGR/HVAC) leaving several ports on the tree. It's kinda ugly and a potential source of leaks.

One thing I am running into, however, is that most of these things have 6+ ports on them. I may end up using a nitrous manifold -they are small, and typically four or five ports. They're NPT threaded, so should work similarly.
