Why ??? In most cases you only require copper silicon .. Just drill out the outer holes on manifold to allow for expansion. Just let the centre two hold it in position... Then if you still have issues? Just cut between each port on flange 3/4 way through [ from top to 12mm from bottom] so it cannot twist / warp ...
