Well... He has a good point... The turbo is already hanging from the manifold so why make a crane.... Supporting it from the bottom as he suggested makes sense....

I see you are running X98.
How corrosive is it?
I am wondering if it can be left in the fuel system for reasonable lengths of time like E85 or not?
Obviously filtration is key as is a good maintenance program, but there seems to be very little information around on the fuel?

I did think that once, then I analyzed an Alpha12 turbo kit (in hand) and they have nicely machined brackets to do the same thing in the same location. I wouldn't hesitate with turbine housing mounted solid bracing.

I would also add that it should be done on the turbine housing or housing bolts specifically. not an oil drain bolt or the compressor housing. any flex in the turbo from a chra or compressor mounted bracket could cause turbo failure from wheel hitting the housing. if you put all of the stresses in the exhaust housing and avoid the center section you will be golden.

The MSM is a perfect example of this on a cheap car:
turbine housing has a mounting point cast in it
there is a thick steel bracket bolting to it and the block.
cheap and effective. no need to over think it

Do you reckon THEY did it because they have the R&D capability to also do it cheap, like oem?

My 2 cents:

The longer the tubes, the more they will grow with temps, the worse a rigid brace will be. There's also harmonics at play. AMS V6 stiff cast stainless relatively short tube manifold ≠ bp weld elbow'ed long runner manifold.

Yeah I bought this car in June of 2011. Got married in it in June of 2013 in the middle of an epic 3 week road trip around the US.

Sold it to vteckiller2000 after that, he took great care of it. He sold it to this dude... and then this happened.

Yeah, watching this guy post about this car on various miata fb groups was really amusing especially because he went dead silent about his build at some point and then started posting his car fs everywhere. Didn't see him post a single time slip either, but the car supposedly ran when he was trying to sell it.

Then he parted everything because no one was willing to pay his ridiculous asking price for an unfinished project.

I drove it at MATG 2016. It was a dumpster fire. Flat out dangerous and had no business being out there.

Wait is this the guy that was boasting somewhere in Miata Club/FB about buying a miata, dumping 13k into it only to part it out?
