Default 1.6 manifolds?

I'm just trying to figure out which manifolds for the 1.6 are "good"
it seems that most people with the megan says its cracks, and people put down the obx, whats left?
are there any off the shelf ones that will fit the turbo from the GTX?

BEGi's is currently the best. FM's will likely be a close second when their revised one comes out.

not too sure yet, one of the local miata guys is also a 323GTX guy and said he has some stock turbos from that, I think they may be the right size

gtx manifolds will bolt up, but it won't work with the miata. the gtx's motor is mounted transverse to the car, the miata is mounted longitudinally. the gtx turbo is VERY responsive and you can hybrid it with a probe gt or mx6 compressor for more power.
