**I've been searching for a few days and have yet to find what I'm looking for, hoping someone can help out**
I'm looking for a manifold that holds the turbo on top (like BEGI's tubular manifold, but up-side-down - see the pic below)…I'd prefer the following specs for a 1.8L engine:
1) holds the turbo on top of the manifold
2) Manifold tubes bends down, then up for turbo flange (to keep the turbo from sitting too high)
3) Turbo as close to the block/head as possible
4) Turbo to be centered (some are offset towards the front of the engine).
5) No need for EGR
Here's BEGI's manifold - I'd love this exact one, but up-side-down.
Anyone know of one that already exists…or possibly a source to have one fabricated w/o breaking the bank? Thanks!!!
*I'm building a Lotus 7 style car (MNR Vortx) w/ the driveline from a '99 miata…I had planned to use a FFS coldside supercharger, but just found out that it won't fit b/c it interferes w/ the chassis/body work. I've got space on the exhaust side, but not as much as a miata, so I need to hold the turbo a little higher.
