So for $36 your telling me you wouldn't buy this manifold??? If it cracks i have a tig.are all of you so afraid of things breaking that you wouldn't spend less than what it cost for a tank of gas?
I often get confused a why everything bought on Ebay is immediately flamed off.
also there seems to be a little bit of a difference in the manifold shown and other manifolds I've seen on eBay... did any of you actually inspect the photographs? or was the first reaction just to start teasing me for my mods, all of with have proven very useful btw.

I am legitimately amazed at this post.

There is no hope for you.

I'm completely and utterly serious:

There is no hope for you. At all. Like, ever.

What a sad day.

IF that's really how ignorant you are, after years and years and years and threads upon threads upon threads, and reviews upon reviews upon reviews and pictures upon pictures upon pictures of this exact topic beaten to death and back 1 gazillion times, if you're really this ignorant I am legitimately telling you, without any malice or hatred: THERE IS NO HOPE FOR YOU.

Just sell your miata now and save the poor little car from its owners ignorance.

When, not if, it cracks. And if it is like other ebay manis, the wall thickness is not enough to weld.

Obviously you are confused, because probably 1/2 the site is running IC and piping from Ebay.

There isn't, it's an S4 knockoff.

Any idea if it's a T25 or T3 flange? I've got an old T3 turbo you can have if you want to pick it up.

Sorry i spend more time in my garage than on this forum ...you are correct i did not spend much time searching, but not to buy would have been stupid just on a busness angle...i can certinly sell fur more than i paid. I first joined this site to unload parts and possibly meet a few people who share my passion for driving racing and hands on modifing these little cars. and i have made quite a few people happy with money i saved them
Sold torsen swaps for under $500, 1.8 long block $50, trans $75 ect ect
Yet most of you still get more enjoyment teasing people on the internet than actually networking with People that may be Good to know and fun to drive and do events with.

So feel free to ban me as there is no hope for my ignorance...I'll be out driving the **** out of my car having fun and wont care WHEN my junk Ebay $36 manifold breaks il buy somthing else
And the personal integrity of the men on this site has been noted

I mean the page you linked us to even has 2 of the shitty knockoffs that are identical to this one.



Seriously the REAL begi S4s had problems with cracking, and you think a cheaper, thinner-walled one will be OK?

How have you been here for 2 years but can't take some teasing when you post stupid ****?

And Brian i wasn't counting the shipping as that is a expense that is paid regardless of what product you buy that's from states away.
Just as i will charge shipping on it if i sell
But even tho you all say it's crap and the reviews bla bla bla for the money spent i say it's worth it even if just a experiment to test the breaking point first hand
