Bah show me a nicer miata manifold Tim.

I've had a lot of difficulty finding equal length ram-ish manifolds for any car let alone a miata. I'm sure hustler has lots of pics of them but they are probably all ra$ecar$

Thanks Trey & everyone else! When you're a billionaire I hope you remember me for fab work on your fleet of exotics and/or offshore powerboats.

I talked to Tim just a few minutes ago about overnighting the parts, $345 to get it to me by the end up the day tomorrow, or $87 for 2 day. I went with 2 day. Hopefully Wednesday night is clear out.

Yes, but then I would not be able to afford an Absurdflow setup because all my money would be going towards extremely high rent and gas, which I would use a **** ton of with a 2 hours commute each way every day. So **** that.

When you're ready for the practicum, I'll pay your airfare to Dallas to weld up my new heat-exchanger chamber/foil design.

I won't take that bet either. I am trying to get all my bases covered with everything I will need, but who knows.

I mean sure, but you will probably get much better welds from Abe. Also I am very likely to be killed in Dallas in the fall. Being a Redskins fan and hating the Cowgirls will not go over well.

I posted a little list of things to check out but then the internetz shut off on me. Remember to run a restrictor in your oil feed line. I returned the brass 4an to 4an fitting that was in the churbo box. If you reuse it, clean it out, it's full of junk. Use brass washers on the coolant fittings. CHRA bolts are not tight. Install turbo to manifold off the car, have vband tight enough to keep the turbo attached but loose enough for you to be able to clock it. Install manifold/turbo combo onto engine. Install main downpipe from the bottom. Install upper EWG dump from top. Install MVS, remember to install "fire ring" with it! tighten all the vbands up then. It may be easier to get some 1/4-28 nuts at lowes; the nuts on the vbands are locking style and make it a PITA to tighten while holding the pipe/turbo/etc in place. I use the cheapo nuts that I can spin one with one finger then double them up with the fancy nuts once everything's tight. Or you can just use the fancy nut by itself, I don't care.

EDIT: install the crane last: The main crane thingie goes on first and gets tightened up. Install the turnbuckle after the crane is tight. Install turnbuckle so that it's not preloaded. Tighten turnbuckle hardware to crane/manifold. The turnbuckle has right & left threads so one everything's tight you can crank the pink thing and preload it. I'd "shorten" it so that the crane is pulling up on the manifold somewhat. Not too much, not too little. How much? Do it until something breaks then back off some.
