yeah, the foundry's recycling bin..

Steph, I'm tellin you... get rid of the text! Company logo or nothing. Just my opinion. But if I saw that under the hood of a car I'd maybe snicker a little--because the turbo on the other side of the engine bay is obvious enough.

+1 on this... especially with a fuel rail or injector bosses.

I think at some point Im going to buy this manifold, but Im going to sand down where it says "miata turbo".

How many people on here are running turbos big enough to benefit from a new intake manifold? I'd go with an adapter and bigger TB first then work my way up.

I'd bet most people would benefit more from head work. <The Office> That's what SHE said. </The Office>

Yeah, I concur that headwork seems like it'd be the first order of business.

Then again, if it's really a quick 20-30hp at the 300hp level, then it's probably less money and effort than headwork.

I think most of the gain is because of the throttle body... I don't have proof though.
