Manifold advice MX5?
Quick hello before the first timer asks you all for some advice.
I have a 1994 1.8l miata/MX5 that I want to turbo and this would appear to be a great place for help and information, the main problem being I'm in the UK and we get a bum deal on most things.
I'm looking at a DIY install to keep the cost down but even this doesn't come cheap.
I have looked at a manifold and downpipe from the two main players, Begi/FM, and although the quality looks good the cost is quite high as they will not ship direct and I have to go through their UK based dealers.
EG. A manifold +DP in SS from Begi works out at over $1400!!!
So, my question is, are there any other supplies that I should consider?
Are the kits off ebay worth a look?
Any thoughts on the HKS complete kits, they don't receive many good comments over here but I do see a few of their manifolds being mentioned in members signatures on here.
I would like to aim for around 210/220 hp and have a full budget to include engine management etc of around $5000
Thanks in advance,
