Default 97 1.8 turbo manifold and turbo combo. need help

Looking for a turbo and manifold for my 97 Na Miata. I want cast iron but so far no luck. If anyone knows a good cast iron turbo manifold and turbo that is small, looking to push 6-8 pounds at first. Please help

You have Begi and FM for cast manifolds that use a T2 flange. You have eBay tacotaco if you want a t3 flange. Then you have Trackspeed Engineering if you want a t2 flange to work with an EFR turbo, you won't be running 5psi though with an EFR.

Those are your only 4 choices for cast manifolds. You can also check out my mkturbo group buy for a weld el log manifold that is reasonably priced.

I have looked at lego's that fit each other and work well together.

it depents on your definition of good.
both are strong and good quality. both will work for most setups
IMO the begi is engineered for a tad bit better flow than FM, but the fm will get to you on time, and will fit, and be easier to install, and they won't make a billion stupid mistakes or forget to send you one altogether
if you want the best FLOWING cast log it looks like TSE is going to be best in that department, and still fit most turbo's

If you order just a manifold from Begi I would expect it to ship on time since they keep those in stock. If you order anything else to go along with it, then expect a wait.

I will be testing my TSE manifold for fitment with at least a SR20 T25 once I get my manifold in. Since it fits the huge EFR, I don't expect to have any fitment issues with any Garret t25 turbos, but we won't know until they get out to customers.

I'd be surprised if andrew hasn't already done that though, since he specifically said it fits other t2's as well.

if it's as good as it looks, I'll be recommending his to everyone going forward. if he makes a dp that's as good too, well that's just icing

I want to run the sr20 turbo sense they are common to get, I also want a tubular manifold but just not sure who to go with. That will fit well with the sr20 turbo. I am doing an ac and power steering deleted so not worried to work around those.

I see no reason our manifold can't be used with a Garrett T25 (i.e. 2554/2560/2860/3071/etc). Once the EFR downpipes are in production, if there's demand for a Garrett T25 downpipe, we'll add one to the catalog.

Wait, now you want a tubular manifold? ARTech will make you one.

HKS is technically a top mount cast manifold.
