Pretty sure the answer is no, because many of us would like one of Lars' manifolds. I bet he will suggest Artech, begi, or FM.

Sure, it will be $1500 shipped. I won't take your order until I have a steady supply of turbos though. The manifold will also come with a turbo, down pipe, and an axle back.

That's pretty much exactly what I expected to see in response to that question.

Looking forward to seeing that kit soon Lars!

I was interested at first but I can't ship the catback overseas, price will be sky high on it alone, not even talking customs. I think there is an audience for your parts, Lars.

I already have a large enough audience in the USA to sell to. I have more people interested then I can honestly handle at this time. I don't have a large desire to keep getting bigger and bigger.

I have about 500 miles on the kit. was dealing with some boost creep issues, ended up taking the turbo back off and porting some more. no creep now holds around 9 psi. car is an absolute blast to drive.

Also enjoying my setup.. got my car tuned last night on a hub and axle dyno - and ran into alot of problems with overboosting at the dyno due to me not porting the wastegate enough (also blew my piping off a few times)

I should've ported way more.. now i have to go back !.. pushing about 14psi right now.. around 180-220hp car is still hella fun but it has a lazy boost curve.

Will post my dyno graph once i re-port wastegate and get it re-tuned with ebc

At least pulling the turbo off is relatively easy and quick. I ended up pulling mine 3-4 times to do porting until I got to a point that I was happy. I am glad to hear you got it installed and on a dyno so quickly. Very glad you and enjoying it.

I should have my car on the dyno next week for tuning. Probably do 12-13 psi on the small frame t3 and 100oct. See what happens with it haha.

Just thought I'd mention that today I did my 3rd oil change on this kit averaging 3000 to 3500 per oil change. I am at 10000 miles total.

Hello there. My son and I just finished installing an MKTurbo kit on his Miata. We didn't port the wastegate (our first turbo). Now we know why we need to and what happens when you don't. So I'm reading and learning before breaking out the grinder. Do I understand you when you say that you did not channeling that you ONLY enlarged the hole and did NO porting in the air tract or anything else? Just enlarged the hole? I see the BEGI write up showing the channel. Not sure what way to go and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can before chips start flying. Thanks for any detail you can offer on this.

I looked back and it looks like I was inconsiderate and didn't take pictures of the completed port job. However, the picture below shows everything you need to know about my port job. I put chalk on the flapper and closed it a few times to leave a chalk outline of the flapper. I outlined that with sharpie, then set to work.



Sharpie line is where the outline of the flapper. Red line is approximately where I cut out.

The only thing I did was enlarge the hole, leaving about a 2mm rim all the way around to make a good seal with the flapper. I took measurements before and after, and this added about 30% to the area. Airflow is proportional to the area of the hole, so this allows 30% more airflow. The whole thing took 1 hour including taking apart the turbo, measuring, cutting, cleaning, and putting it back together.

The result is that when the wastegate is wired open, I get no positive boost (less vacuum than full vacuum, but less than 100kpa) all the way to redline. With the wastegate in action, no boost creep.

Also, for the record, I did no channeling, which IMHO is for people who don't understand physics.

Heres my initial porting.. i didn't go very far..





Took my turbo off this friday to do some more porting and snapped a few more pictures - it should give you an idea how far i ported.. it still isnt enough.. even after adjusting my preload im seeing it creep ( I did a rough trace that you can see in the image - went out about that far - this was not the finished product. )





I am still dealing with boost creep issues which i most likely will tackle again sometime this week

Here is my most recent port, basically a copy of NigelT's. I get creep on wastegate but only to about 9 psi IIRC. I did no channeling and just radiused the transition a tiny bit so it wasn't a sharp edge.

I have done both port styles and the only real difference seems to be my EBC settings. I needed to enlarge the hole some on my first channeled port to stay under 10psi or so.

This is my copy of NigelT's port.
