Default Any info on this craigslist manifold?

I am looking at the below manifold from a seller on craigslist. The seller bought his car with it attached and has since swapped the engine. He says it had a TD04 on it with a custom plate but its built for a TD05. Any info would be great if you guys know anything about it.

Turbo manifold - Imgur

This is for a 1.6

Thanks

Looks like your typical china special manifold. I'd stay away.

I should mention its $40 but I guess that is not that relevant. Not a good idea to build a turbo kit around a bad manifold?

Yeah bro, but it is $40?

OP if you build your setup around a shitty manifold, you are going to have a bad time.

The fact that it's $40 is extremely relevant. I was 99.9999999999999% sure it was a **** ebay manifold, but if it's $40 that makes me 100% sure.

You are probably right. And this may even be that shitty ebay manifold in kit form;


Mazda MX5 Miata NA6CE 1 6 B6 TD05 Turbo Kit 350HP | eBay


350hp? Can the 1.6 even do that? haha

As long as you run allofit through the stock MAF as shown in those photos, and don't tune the ecu, you'll totally be fine.
