Default 1.6 t3 turbo manifold advice?

I'm new here and have searched a bit on a turbo manifold for my 1993 1.6. ETD racing manifold looks good for my application. what other manifolds does anyone recommend for 1993 1.6 t3 manifold? will run external wastegate.

thanks!

they both have t3s for 1.6 applications....I have a BEGi 1.6 T3 manifold...Corky can mod it to accept a wastegate...see the S5 kit.

the JGStools.com manifold can come preassembled with whatever flange you want. (dont look at miata specific stuff, look at the manifolds page.)

go to amazon.com and search "maximum boost" then go to bellengineer.net and read "about begi" and "corky's comments," you'll quickly see why he's a favorite.

not to mention if you call him he'll take the time out of his day to give you and extremely long-winded explaination and solution to things.
