Default Megan racing t25 dp and mani, 275 on ebay? Terrible?

Help me guys, i cant find any reviews on this, my initial thought would be that it is terrible, but maybe things have changed bc this is a different style and its about 400 cheaper than the fm diy mani/dp setup i was considering...

it does say for a nb but clearly says for 90-97, which again makes me wonder is it for a 1.8?

You get what you pay for, especially on ebay.

Do you really think they do Research and Development on this junk and give even a fraction of a damn about it actually WORKING? LOL
Ask them about piping thickness then ask Abe and Tim what they use. Then proceed to buy begi/fm/artech/absurdflow or prepare to fail

This is epic, it fits anything from 90-97 miatas? By that theory it fits 1.6 and 1.8 models together unless 90-93 miatas came in 1.8. Now i am curious what the welder will say about what pipe they use.

Also no wideband bung so you'll need one of those welded and i bet the welder wont be happy welding soda cans.

Offer the seller 10 bucks see what he says.

I thought Megan was at least a marginably reputable company? Scary stuff that they don't seem to have any clue what generation, motor, or turbo it would supposedly fit.

They actually make marginally non-shitty parts for some other cars.
Their downpipes for subarus for example, hold up just fine and don't have issues for the most part.

I just think they dgaf about miatas
