Default Need help identifying an OBX turbo manifold. also need video sex chat

First of all I am confused if this one will fit my 94 1.8 (listed as 1.8 NA or NB , seller doesn't know)

I Googled but not much on these OBX models has been written especially directly on these 1.8 Miata versions.
This is the one that is on sale for $120 shipped ... ?? OBX ???? ????? NA6CE? NA8C? NB6C? NB8C? ??? - ???????????????? - ????!

I can see they are of budget quality (my friend is a welder) but just wondering if the one in my pictures is worth $120 shipped and if it will be OK for a 94-95 1.8 at all ???

Current item on Ebay is confusing , not a top mount and for 89-00 1.8 ?? Attention to detail is not their aim or am I missing something ...


Logically I like the short side mount type for general heat and clearance issues so if this does fit in my 95 1.8 (with a 99-00 head swap later on) is this manifold decent for an around 270 hp goal?

Again seller says he doesn't know , therefore selling as is (the only 1.8 turbo related item on yahoo.jp auctions at present) + now I realize haven't read up on different manifold designs so that's also on my "to study" list !



With the 1.6 Greddy kit being so common in Japan I have found that most common 1.8 NA owners go for NA type tunes so I'm not surprised this one made it to Japan somehow...

$120 ... Top mount OBX hmm which

Doesn't matter, all 1.8 manifolds are the same, the downpipe will differ between NA and NB

If you'd like to visit your friend weekly, and tear apart your car each time, it's worth it. If you have common sense, no.

My 1.6 was a simple almost complete Greddy mani Mitsubishi TD04 used kit but with the 1.8 I'm not too sure what route to go for ...

One thing noobs these days just can't seem to wrap their mind around, is that sometimes something is bad and not worth getting NO MATTER what the price is.

if you have a pile of poo, and you polish it, it's still poo. if it's half price, it's STILL poo.

do you understand this concept?

would you like to buy some condoms with holes in them for half price? post your address I'll sell them to you for $.10 each

So what manifold will hold up and wont cost me more for shipping to Japan than the actual manifold cost ?

rule #1 of MT: if you have to ask which manifolds have been proven to work, you have done no homework and are too lazy for us to attempt to help.

try searching

I'm not gonna fall for your little attempt , been on here for years , I asked a legit question ... I don't have many options in Japan nor do I know of anyone within a 2000 km radius that has or will tune a 1.8 Miata (local tuning shop friends of mine makes fun of me as they churn out 600-900hp Skylines & Supras daily) , my other car is a 6 speed Skyline and previously owned 1JZGTE HKS F-Con tuned ... Now I am here for legitimate love for these little turds. If you want to be cool and call me a noob go ahead , I have seen you do it too often... Get on Skype and see me chillin

Do you want one that will not crack right away, because all of those OBX ones break, often and in several places. They are a complete waste of money. Honestly being in Japan and dealing with shipping costs you need to get one custom made, or man up and pay what FM will charge you to get a good setup to you.

No, you need to buy one that works. Unfortunately they're expensive. Or build your own. Or... buy the piping/flanges and have a log manifold built for you.

Example: MKTurbo log manifold.
Strong, durable, & thick... Will last many years.



VS your aluminum can manifold which is prone to cracks & failures...
