I agree with this as well. To add, the people I have seen using the TD04 style flange are people who have more skill/time than money. I don't think there are MANY people looking for a cast TD04 manifold, but it is one of the only places I can see that will differentiate your product. You can either go for the high end and compete with the Trackspeed EFR turbo kit, or you can go super low end. The middle of the market is pretty well full with BEGI/FM.

Whereas there may be a lack of product in the low end TD04, will the people who are using that turbo for budget reasons be willing to pay the price for a properly engineered cast manifold? I am skeptical along with 18psi.

Those look like cast steel. And really good quality.

shows weld-el logs on the product pics. unless the above pictured cast units just came out recently

also that's $700, which is what a begi/fm mani+dp costs

Look all im saying is some random company just posted up asking if there is a market for them to build xxx for your car. You want them to research this is a form of research contacting people within a market and asking them what they would like to see. I guess another option would be to read through miata turbo finding all 68,000 of your post 67,500 of which are just most likely you bashing people for bullshit lol?

I truly do not see why someone would bash a company for wanting to make products for your platform.

I am not sure why you would need to have faith in me lol...

Idk why anyone would post after all the bashing you guys gave them. But I guess the correct thing to do would be for them to post clearing it all up. Will they follow through no clue not my problem.

You claim they are trying to make a quick buck..and while I have very little experience with castings in my line of work as I just design the pieces that check said castings it is not like it is a zero dollar investment for a quick buck.

IDK how we've managed to stay online after being so bad for so many years.
We've run off all the vendors and all the members, it's essentially a dead forum.

....oh wait

I never said it was dead...but you cannot possibly believe that posting around bashing people proving your superiority makes it a great place either.
There is a little bits of information in random places and that is about the only good thing. If you ask anything you are just bashed granted I have escaped most of that seeing it happen to the other 90% gets old. This post is another example of that.

Nasioc isnt nearly this bad and there are 99% more idiots on there far too busy vaping and wearing skinny jeans to put oil in their car.

TD04 T6 flange

This is the type that needs a solution. Plenty of triangle-like manifolds to choose from mainly from uk. But haven't seen a t6 miata manifold.

How about for an EVO X factory turbo? They're inexpensive and are twin scroll.
