Well I'm ready to buy my hot side stuff, but Tim says it will be the end of April before I can have an Absurdflow, so now I'm torn. Do I wait for the absurdflow or do I try for an ARTech? I can't find many pictures of the popular Artech manifold. I have seen a lot of pictures of the Absurdflow and I really like that design as it looks like a great combination of flow and spool, though I'm sure the ARTech is excellent as well. Can anybody direct me to some pictures of an Internal wastegate ARTech manifold? I haven't talked to Abe yet about how long it would take, but that's next on my list if I like the design.

I apologize if this is a stupid post, I'm in a strange mood tonight. (wine anybody?)

Are you positive you don't have a torsen? I'm under the impression that more NBs than not have torsens.

From my understanding both ARTech and Absurflow are kindof a 1 man, custom build operation and either one is going to have a bit of a wait. I'm about halfway through an estimated 2 month wait on my exhaust from ARTech. Your best option, IMO, is to be to commit to one of them and use the wait time to get the standalone and injectors installed and working properly. That will make things a lot simpler when the turbo kit arrives.

The NBs had some other kind, at least in my year, and based on the amount of wheelspin I get I'm pretty sure I don't have an LSD. Now that you mention it though, I've never actually checked. I'm not even sure what to look for to be honest.

Based on Miata.net's 'NB FAQ, the '99-'02 models had an optional T2 Torsen, and in '03, the optional LSD switched to a Tochigi Fuji model.

If its a leather package car, it has a torsen. if the suspension was a hard S on the door sticker, you have one. Im not sure if the two were mutually inclusive or not.


My 02 had tweeters and cruise from the factory, but came with an open differential, non sport springs, and cloth seats, if that sounds familiar.
