Default Turbo manifold nut problem

First post! So I built a sketchy $500 turbo miata, with one of those fleabay cast manifolds (can't really beat $150 for cast) or so I thought, but I can't get the top 2 nuts on, or the very middle bottom one. There's literally no space. Anyone have any ideas?? BTW try to contain yourselves from my horrifying Frankenstein mechanic work, this is a budget build

This is the frankenstien

You could try a step down stud or a allen head bolt instead of the stock studs and nuts. Even a lower profile nut may do the trick.

That in conjuction with possibly grinding the manifold

Oven-duct-vent piping downpipe, FTW. Can we see a picture of how that bolts up to the turbine housing?

Thanks guys, how did I know I would be assisted by the best coming to miataturbo.net! My $4 downpipe is literally for 3 days cuz I needed to get a v band dp welded. And tbh, it's 2016, we should really stop calling people retarded, whether or not you agree with my miata choices.

I hate it when people call their piece of **** embarrassment of a "build" a "budget" build. Because it gives actual budget builds. Instead of saying its a budget build, just call it what it is. A lazy broke-dick embarrassment of a car.

You're right, it's not a strong enough word for how bad this is. It's a disservice to retarded people who actually have more brain cells than you.

Run the DP into the intake for double boost. Much quieter also.

This *** is like the **** who have effectively banned the word făggot. Since it somehow refers to gay people, and since we as a society are now more accepting of ****, we cant use the word ***.

What a retarded făggot.


But seriously, if the uppipe is only for 3 days, why did you even bother running to home depot and putting an hour+ and $10 into that? Do you plan to eliminate the factory crossover? Or are you going to let it eliminate itself? And is that a copper line running to what I believe to be an FMU?

Pretty sure that's clear vacuum hose reflecting some sun. You can see the rest along the intake.
