Ok, but I warn you this: you will spend about the same or more to fab your own manifold and downpipe, as you will if you buy one.

List your goals for us please. Hp, intended use, budget, fab ss and equipment you have access to.

i have build a miata before was 1.6 with ct 20 turbo. 6psi. rasing rate fuel presure regulator. it made 105kw on wheels.
il post some photos and u tube links later. was running good for 2 years no problems. unfortunatlly i had to sell it due to financial problems
This time round i want to do things properly. i want to make 150-170 wkw on 12 psi. like i said i already have stand alone ecu and 440cc injectors

the ebay manifolds is about 3 to 4 thousand rand. it cost me 300 rand to make my own manifold last time ;-)
and it was a branch manifold. il post pics later

Ok, so eBay stuff is junk anyway. A quality unit from the US would be like 14,000 Rand. Exchange rate is terrible.
Carry on, let's see what you can do. I'm curious to see what 25 bucks (300R.) gets you in S.Africa

What did you make those bends out of for that manifold. For $25 it does not look bad at all. If you can weld and fabricate building a budget setup is much easier.

Do you grind down the welds after you are done to make it look smooth and such?
