Default New Member - Turbo Manifold Advice

Hi all,

I'm Adam and I'm from the UK.

Currently have a MK1 1.8, Jap Import. I've Had it for a few years now and I'm looking to turbo it.

Someone on a forum in the UK, has a T3 turbo manifold for sale.

I've never seen a manifold like this before, but it does look like an ebay special and I wanted to know if anyone else had come across one of these before, and it they are actually any good?







Thanks.

As an homage to some of my favorite Brits -




You don't want that even if it is free.

Thanks for all the replies, Decided not to purchase this for obvious reasons.

Think i'm going to stick with getting someone to fabricate one for me.

Make sure they know what they are doing... Otherwise you might end up with an eBay quality part for the same or more money. When I do another turbo Miata I will be going with AbsurdFlow myself. *shoulder shrug*
