Default BEGI manifolds for cheap Check this out.

Stephanie just listed some discontinued parts on the BEGI website. There is a 1.6 t3 manifold for $150. Not directed pulse, but that's a stinkin good deal on a heck of a manifold if anyone needs one. Has a one year warranty as well. There are also two 1.8l T25/28 manifolds that are ceramic coated for $300. Also not directed pulse but a great deal. I have used these for mockup a few times and they are in excellent condition. We are cleaning out the shop a little and she has listed a few parts for sale. The manifolds are a great deal in my opinion. There are also some stock MSM intercoolers that would work well for a DIY project. If anyone is considering a DIY setup in the future these would be a great starting point. Take it easy.

Only one 1.8l manifold left. I just ordered one of the 1.8l manifolds and a downpipe. I think cardriverx has laid claim to the 1.6 already.

I never wanted to go turbo. I started coming to this site for Megasquirt info. I thought I might go IRTB. (I'm 1/2 way through that project but I need some custom machining done and I don't have a mill.) Too, many 1/2 done projects.

Dammit I missed the manifolds.
I even asked Stephanie just yesterday if there were any 1.8 mani's floating around.

How did you miss it? You're the reason I even knew about it.

Looks like they had 2 at noon and 0 at 4:15

No biggie, I'd have worked with a t28 but was really hoping for a t3. t3/t4 FTW.

Looks like they still have some cheap Cats and a couple small intercoolers still.

You could probably get it redrilled for a T3/T4, there is probably enough meat there to do it.

But not enough meat in my budget.
Already have an embarassing amount of money in the car. And the motor build is looking like $2k on the bottom end, plus I need a 99/00 intake mani. Probably not going to be able to touch the head.
