Default Absurdflow Low Mount (A/C P/S friendly)

Horray for something cool, and a new website. Absurdflow
I'm taking suggestions on that one.

BEGI coolant reroute/bypass/whatever-they-call-it is going to be used to get rid of that OEM lower radiator hose and make room for the compressor.



So far it looks like a very nice setup, so much so that I am seriously considering ditching the twins and redoing it for my own car. Or at least reusing the downpipe for a sequential TT.

I hope I don't jinx myself cause this is the first thread I've made when I'm not actually done with the build before posting...

Anyone want a (parallel) twin turbo setup for their 1.8, dynoed to 270rwhp @12psi on a stock '94 1.8? I'll entertain offers.

There is some spaz on miata.net that is wanting a multi-turbo setup. Maybe he would be interested.

I'd rather not deal with spazes.

Tim, how do you think this will compare to Paul and Arties mani/dp combo?

It looks almost identical other than the slight turn. I would bet that it would perform identically.

That is so **** mcgee. AC and PS you say?

I bet you could get a simple 90 radiator hose fitting and just move the hose outta the way without going to a full replumbing of the lower hose.

That would be me being interested in a multi turbo setup.
I was thinking in the way like this with a few differences


I have a 1.6l anyways so his 1.8l mani probably won't fit unless its as easy as redrilling holes into it.

Good luck with that. Not just getting it assembled and working, but getting it to outperform a single turbo setup dramatically enough to justify the additional cost/complexity.

Hmmm. Maybe, I didn't look at it too long. I figured ~$200 for the BEGI piece is worth the time, and it comes with a solution for the coolant hoses too.

hahaha. Well someone more crazy than me. I have seen some pretty tiny chinese? IHI turbos on ebay, good for like 100cc to 500cc. Seems doable for 4 individual turbos. It would definitely NOT be as good as a properly sized single turbo, only "different" and probably fun to make.

If you want a TT buy mine for $2500.

I have a thermostat housing from some random car in the junkyard that made a pretty neat water pump inlet. Tapped it for a 1/8 pipe to 5/16 barb for the throttle body return.

I'm pretty sure you could take a standard Miata lower radiator hose, cut and splice it in the middle (like Begi does anyway) and get to the standard Miata lower radiator point from there. Total cost is about $10, not counting the hose. I have a Volvo radiator, so I had to go across the front of the engine to the pass. side.

I'm digging your manifold. Already pointed Dr. Turbo to this thread and told him to give you money.

Mmmm, nice. How much do you think it would be if you built one for a fellow enthusiast?
