I usually don't bash competitors but...

Check out this work of art from boostlogic (fellow MT.net'er, I'm surprized he has't chimed in yet):

take a look at the manifold i got from boostlogic - Honda-Tech

Really? You think this is the best available?

I'm also calling BS on their no boost creep claim, that WG placement is horrible for boost control. And I doubt that is made from 321SS, 316 maybe.

Like I said, some parts I've bought for my RX7 which were supposed to be "top of the line" turned out to be ****, just like that.

Tim ARtech and I definetly make a higher quality manifold than that. No joke, that collector looks like ***. Looks like the purge ran out. I cant believe people pay that amount of money for those welds/buildup. The design looks good but if you get anything even close to that quality i'm gonna LMFAO.

This thread just went from lose to win and a half for me. The guy from the honda-tech link, he is a member on here, and I am getting my new mani from the same place he got his new one from. Just reinforces that I am making the right decision.

I read the first three pages of this thread, and decided that it was making me dumber, so I stopped.

Just when I thought this thread had nothing left to offer...

Thanks for that link ARTech. I hadn't seen any pictures of the collector and that's some seriously nasty ****. That's definitely a deal-breaker.

It seems to work just fine for this guy. I guarantee none of you will run your mouths to him. I think he's on this forum too.

After reading this whole thread I have come to the conclusion that TS is either:
1) a GIANT ******* stupid *** **** sucking ------ with a head so big that he has to drove a convertible with the top down for transportation
2) A very successfull troll that came on here just to stir **** up.

The amount of fail and aids is overwhelming:
1) you ask for comments/criticizm/advise then bash the people giving it to you?
2) you act like you're the god of modifications and have "been around the block" more than everyone here? hahahaha so full of yourself its spilling over the sides
3) this thread should be renamed to: I'm an attention ***** with pipe dreams, LOOK AT MEEEEEEEE

And before you mouth off like a ---- rag:
1) yes I've been "around the block" with many different platforms
2) No I don't give a **** about your life accomplishments

Go build a monster miata then talk bitch. No one cares about what you THINK of all these different products til you prove yourself.

Til then, STFU

I love bad writing.

"The centrifugal pump breathes out through a custom three-inch turbo exhaust system." How about calling it a turbo, especialy since technically the 'pump' portion of the turbo is not breathing through a 3" exhaust unless there is something seriously wrong.

"Stopping the motor from detonating are 750cc injectors fed by a Walbro 255lph fuel pump and everything controlled by a Hydra ECU. " Besides crap sentence structure, this is pretty off too. I would say the water/meth and the intercooler are doing the detonation control.

Something tells me that the manifold on that car does not have a collector that looks like the one in the pic.
