Hello there,
I am a mx5 owner from Greece and i would appreciate some of your opinion I want to put a turbo in my nb 1.8L 99'.I have a garett 2560 , 63,5mm exhaust , i'm going to put a piggybank for an additional injector(550cc) and i want to boost max 10 psi(tell m e your opinion about it).
I want to buy the hks turbo manifold but i can't find it at hksusa.com

You will not be able to quite yet. You need to post a few more times before the forum will allow it.

As far as I know, the HKS was discontinued a few years ago.

I would recommend checking out some of the forum sponsors. They have the best "Bang for the Buck" and being on this site. Will support you through your build every step of the way.

yeah they were discontinued..... ive emailed the first few pages of people who come up on google as selling them and they all say they havent got them anymore and dont know who might, same for HKS europe, japan and USA themselves who said they stopped making them something like 3-5 years ago or something. theres gotta be some floating about somewhere tho. ill check out the sponsors tho as you say.

cheers falcon lol. im sure there'll be many more.

There should be plenty of alternatives, the HKS kit was discontinued ages ago. If it's just the manifold you want then there are manifolds available for whatever turbo you want to put on there.

let me know if you change your mind then, lol.....

tbh, im swaying towards FM's little DIY manifold/outlet/downpipe package, seems like a really good deal for $750 considering its a well proven mani and includes a cast elbow and their two-piece stainless downpipe which i assume is 3" (more than enough). ive been quoted 700 by a well known local fabrication shop for an equal branched stainless tubular one to be made up, and any bracing and the downpipe would be extra so this $750 even after shipping costs to UK should work out really good value. just need to sort out a cat then
