Default Dam Women!! *read diy mani related*

So as most of you know my project is almost done, mani is all polished welded and ready to go in all thats left is tap the pan and that kinda fun stuff.

Anyways to the point, my 21st birthday is on Jan 22 and yesterday the wife asked what I wanted, looking at etd's manifolds at the time I pointed and drouled and said that one (equal length SS top mount 600odd bux) and you know what she says...Sure.

So now I'm in a Huge predicament, I have my turbo system all together; full stainless log mani, nice and polished too, 3'' down pipe, t25 flanged, good condition t25 turbo, all the lines and fittings are ready ect.

On the other hand the etd manifold is beatiful...Stunning, perfect (imo) but I'd need a T3 (not hard to find I guess), i'd need bigger oil lines (take mine back and buy biggers ones/same with fittings), then I'd need a custom down pipe made $$$...

So what do you guys think? How does the etd mani fit in the miata engine bay? Will the Dp be retarded hard to make or anything? Should I just keep the t25 set-up since its already done? It is still winter up here though so I have a few months till theres pavement again lol.

Opinions please...Thanks,


-Dean

btw, I have emange (and soon a bego afpr), and wanna run 200whp, will upgrade to stand alone next winter prolly too. So is the mani too much?

I say stay with what you have, 200rwhp on a t25 should be attainable... $600 buys a lot of Sam Adams or Long Trail...

Steady the course, you're almost there! Ask for a Torsen or something.

The T3 setup would have a lot more headroom, but the log T25 would be considerably cheaper. I would go with the T3 setup, but I do fabrication, so it wouldn't be as big of a problem. I do sell tubing and can help you with some of the fab if you go the T3 route. You, my friend, have a tough decision.

Since your goal is 200 rwhp, stay with the t25. Spend the money on engine management.

The etd mani is nice looking, but you don't need it for your goals.

I think ETD will weld a t25 flange on top of the t3 flange for you.

Get the f-ing turbo on the car already and forget the bling. Spend the extra money on coke and ****** or engine managment.

That is a beautiful manifold but a T25 with fast spool up is nice. I have a T25/28 on my car and a T28 with a divorced WG sitting in the garage. I was going to put it on but I like my spool so much that I scrapped the idea.

If you polished it make sure you clean the fingerprints off it before you fire it up the first time!

I would just stick with what you have now. Spend the money on the engine management.

Maybe i should clear this part up, My goal of 200whp is with the emanage, when I got standalone I will want more (lots more )...I just don't know how much my log will hold me back compared to the equal length down the road..Plus I really don't want to stick with the t25, I think with lapping she'll make to much heat sitting at such high rpms all the time..

Come on someone must think etd over coke, hookers and engine management?
