Default Downpipe question (OBX-R Header & T25)

hello,

which downpipe fits in a miata with an OBX-R/Megan (= same brand?) header equipped with a Garrett T25 turbo?

caus theres not a lot of space behind the turbo :/

any others with the same combination of parts?
maybe someone got a used downpipe for me

None, you have to have one custom made.

You just have to flip the header upside down. It will still bolt to the head, then you can bolt the turbo on.

Aaaaaand and they're off! Whinin has just past leafy on the inside rail, with an upside-down manifold spooling all-of-it.

Are you look for a downpipe that fits before the manifold cracks, or after it cracks?

maybe it will crack ... maybe not. building 2 struts (hope its the right english word) between the turbo bolts and the header. if it cracks - welding - cracks again - welding again ^^ cycle of life :P

bought some V2A parts for an exhaust. hope its runnin next week
