Some comments. Paul's manifold by Tim and my manifold will not fit with AC/PS, but that's also why they allow better turbo placement for straighter DP. Just something to think about when deciding. That also reminds me (can't find a pic right now) of Splittime's manifold by Cody at Lovefab (work of art). His manifold puts the turbo much farther forward for better DP as well, but again, it does not work with PS/AC. When I talked to BEGi about the S4 manifold for a 1.6L, they don't have one right now, but if someone had the time to lend them a test fit car and the funds, they would not be opposed to making one last I talked to them.

I am looking for a manifold for a road racing application, so no AC or PS. Ideally it would be setup for the turbo to hang low, Downpipe to essentially go nearly straight back rather than down, and have a divided outlet ( 1&4, 2&3 together) for a twin scroll turbo.
I am testing a plug and play fully programmable ECU from Omnitek that replaces the AFM with a plug in MAP sensor and IAT. Works great on an unboosted Spec Miata 1.6 so far.
