A well made fabricated manifold will be fine. Just stop using the cheap Chinese manifolds. MK Turbo has a kit on group buy on this forum if you want a good one.

Then that also means you cannot afford to replace your blown motor that is going to happen soon. To reliably turbo a miata you will be spending $2500-3000.

Welcome to the modding your car game. Spend the money, do it right the first time. These are the expenses you are going to have.

$1000 for MS and Wideband O2 sensor.
$300 for Flow Force Injectors.
$350 for FM1 clutch
$300 for Intercooler and Piping
$100-1500 for a Turbo.
$750 - 1500 for manifold and downpipe.
$400-800 for a 3" exhaust.

I'm assuming ISO is the cheap brand sold on ebay that WILL always crack no matter what, even if unused.

Do you mind listing your current mods you already have on the car?
