The turbo manifold is the same for certain Ford models. I would check to see if you can purchase that much cheaper.

You can easily buy just the manifold from aftermarket suppliers at a fraction of the price. Before anyone says anything about it not being OEM, remember that the original equipment failed anyways and appears to be prone to it. Land Rover sources these from other manufacturers who supply to Ford anyways.

I thought I could get the turbo from a ford escape with the same engine because it was much cheaper. The turbo housing and cartridge part (where the turbine is) appear to be identical. But the manifold is significantly different. I got the aftermarket cast iron manifold and coupled it to a new turbo (turbo parts canada). But if I had it to do over again, I would just get the manifold by itself for a few hundred and connect it to my old turbo as it appeared to still be good.
