You should spend the money on cams then. You're only going to see like 15-30 hp difference going to a tubular manifold.
Also there is no damn manifold in the world creating 30hp in our platform. Stock manifolds are ass, proven for years to not hold up. Good choice on a crafted quality piece by sheepey.

His oem manifold is completely capable of holding up just fine with his current mods. And 30hp gain from exhaust manifold is completely feasible because it's a difference measured in percentage. There is no set number increase. My point being gains will be even less if not done in conjuction with other mods.

TLDR: OP replacing oem manifold is a waste of money compared to other things he could mod for better gains.

That’s great that you feel that way, then please explain why they’ve raised the price on a stock replacement manifold 550 dollars in the last year? During a pandemic at that.
Because of the cost it takes for fabrication dude. It's not like every item they sell has increased 550 dollars. People aren't going to buy a cast manifold to replace the stocker unless the oem one has cracked. And if that's the case they could source a new oem manifold for cheaper.

Ergo supply and demand.
