Ya'll are on a different level man. Kind of like a village back home that for example would say. "You want go store?" versus "You want to go to the store?". Some jackass analyzed their use of the english language in that manner as being superior because they get their point across is fewer words.
Your manner of speaking is above and beyond that sometimes.

Could you have the shop rig up half the down pipe? Just to get it going away from all the stuff that would melt, then put it on and drive to the shop and have them finish it? Maybe stupid maybe not.

Just the flange and half of the dump pipe might work.

Seems real risky to drive that far like that though...Know a friend with a dolly or a trailer?

I know all about being effecient. But i sill dont get wgat hes is saying.
As close as i can figure it might be.
"Fine i'll add that you are insane. Do you know where all the hot gasses will be?" Is this about right?

Well problem solved I think "crosses fingers"

I just bought a begi turbo manifold that was used with the aerodyne turbo designed by Corky Bell for NA 1.6 miata. It is confirmed with corky that the manifold can easily be adjusted to be used with a T3 or t25 turbo with some drilling I also got the downpipe (it's short so it looks like I need more fabbed at the exhaust shop) but I think if I can at least get it on somehow it will allow me to safely run the 8 miles to the shop. What do you guys think? I am pretty excited I got it all for $150 shipped, I was getting worried about finding a mani I could afford and was afraid I was going to have to risk one of the ebay ones so I am pretty glad I found this.

Those relief cuts are interesting, I don't think mine are like that. I believe mine is the same manifold except drilled for an IHI turbo. Also, mine has a third relief cut in the center hole between runners 2 and 3. Might be a good idea to make that cut as well.

corky pretty much only cut between 1&2 and 2&3.

i wouldn't run without a dp. even dumping straight out of a DP you'll see flames....i personally wouldn't want to melt my coolant hoses and brake master.
