It's kinda bs that MWR essentially has a monopoly on making the swap headers so they can price gouge and sell theirs for $500. I understand it definitely improves airflow but how are there no other options for this header? I was debating getting a used lotus Elise header and trying to make it work but I'm worried about how it'll bolt up to the flange (post collector) and of course the top speed header is sold out although at much more reasonable price range ($250)

No one seems to even have a used one they'd want to sell and I really don't like the idea of cutting flanges off and welding them on (my welder really isn't meant for precise welding)

Are there ANY other options out there without having to spend $500 for a header? that's about as much as I paid for the engine LOL.

You can modify the 1zz header with a little drilling and welding some steel nuts onto the flange where there needs to be holes added. It's obviously not the best flowing solution but it's probably the cheapest.
