I think you are going to have to do a reroute of your lines, I had to reroute mine to dodge the manifold and DP.

Years ago I had a thread that had pictures of my hks/downpipe build. I don't think it's available anymore. It's a straight forward design. 1 90 degree pipe, 2 45 pipes.

Here's a link with some pictures:

FYI, I don't maintain this site anymore, so some links and info will be outdated.


Also, attached are some pictures of my updated divorced downpipe.

Hi
I also have plenty of problems looking for a downpipe that will fit the manifold set up.. do you know if this idea will work for a 2001 miata?? do you make these ??

cough...cough...excuse me, I have not posted in a while

As far as I know, there are no downpipes available for the HKS manifold.This is a straight up DIY build. I almost made a production run of my downpipe last year, but I decided there was not a market for this product.

I'm sure you can copy my setup for a 2001 miata. I've seen a couple of HKS DIY builds for 2000+ miatas. I have plenty of room for this design in my 95, just make sure to make some sort of heat shield for your heater hose and master brake cylinder.

Good luck.
