Default searching replacement for my cracked ETD turbo manifold

I bought a used (2000km) turbo kit from a guy lately. The manifold is exactly like this:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Mazda-Miata-M...item27b98b900d

It has cracked under the welded bracket, I think it is total crap considering 2000km had it cracked and the runners diameter are just too big to produce good flow velocity from my point of view.

Can you guys post a link of what you would consider the best, reliable and flow producing manifold available. I have a 400$ maximum budget for the manifold.

This is not a genuine ETD Racing manifold, it's a cheap knockoff. Hell, it doesn't even resemble an ETD Racing manifold.

forgot to tell that the turbo is a TD05-16G and the flange on the manifold is vertically and not horizontally oriented like a greddy manifold...

The kit I got for 1000$ included: the said manifold, a TD05-16G with all the oil and coolant lines, full size intercooler with the inlet and outlet at 12oclock, the piping, a real greddy type-s blow off valve, 440cc RC injectors in the oem wiring, e-manage blue preprogrammed, a fidanza flywheel, A 6puck stage 3 clutch kit, downpipe and full 2.5inch exhaust with twin tips and flowmaster muffler.

i'd like the same manifold flange location but crack resistant, I dont want to change the downpipe layout. I like artech fabrication manifold design but im afraid it isn't the same location.

yeah, revenant, after looking at what ETD makes, it is a cheap knockoff. Can you guys link me something that helps me find a good manifold for a TD05 and my 1993 RHD.

You check everything?

In for the cracked manifold after welding.

what do you mean?? the headers had heatwrap all around so the crack was not evident to see. Do you mean to weld back the manifold?? I might not seize what you meant...sorry...

The cheap ebay knockoffs tend to crack on weekly basis.

I have to get one built specifically for my application. I'd like the runners to be small in diameter to improve flow. Change material, i'll get one built in steel with bigger wall thickness. I also have to keep in mind the turbo flange orientated in the same direction. I dont want to change downpipe. I think the manifold turbo flange design is mitsubishi TD05 and eclipse T25 type.

Any Garrett would fit on that type of flange??

There are several manifold fabricators on the forum that can take your manifold and build a high quality duplicate of it IF it's intact.
