Ill be at buttonwillow to test the new mani on the 6th come check it out if your in the area. Ill have some pics up on as soon as I get them I got it installed and started, runs great I have not driven it yet up the throttle response is much quicker surprisingly considering the size of the plenum, I am very exited to test it and offer custom builds soon.

Just in time for me to break in my new engine and blow up my 1.6 rear. Now I'm gonna have to choose Ford 8.8 or another 1.6 rear and intake mani. Damn you for presenting choices!!!!

Ok track tested and ready to go. I ran on Sunday and had a blast, top end power was much better and never drops off. Ill get more details up at the end of the day also will be on my web site by the end of the week. Also tested and confirmed the new end link kit, and Cobalt friction brake pads, all worked very well and will be available, as well as the manifold now.

Here are some installed pics, I still need to reconfigure my coolant reroute but this will give you a good idea of how it fits.

I'd buy one just to make swapping injectors that much easier. Looks great.

This has me thinking.

I like thinking, but my wallet doesnt.


How well does the throttle work... any response improvements in having the massive TB?

I'd be more interested in how it holds up long term with the miata's crazy vibration.
