No drone at all. No cat either.

Tim, what's wrong with redoing your lower radiator hose? I did a simple job of mine.



It just goes down around a few things and then back up. I forget what hose I used but it had a nice simple j-hook shape. I then mated it to the cut stock hose with a dual barb end connector of the appropriate size from mcmaster.

Requires effort.

Nice job on your solution however. Can I buy your MIG for cheap?

So say 5-10hp with my tiny 2560. If that's the case I'll turn up the boost 1psi. Worth the tone in that case.

probably less effort than building a manifold. but i guess you do that either way.

you want my mig? it's not worth it. there are better ones with variable current (not switches to make you angry) for about what I paid. it does do 110VAC though which is nice for light stuff.

there's an ad in grassroots motorsports for a 110v eastwood for 299 if you mention the magazine.

http://www.eastwood.com/mig-welder-1...5a-output.html

seems like a decent deal.

No drone is good to know. Do either of you two have more pics of your manifolds? Would it clear A/C & P/S? Anything major have to be moved for it to fit?

**** dawg, mine clears, PS, AC and has an EGR bung.

http://gallery.y8s.com/miata/turbo/?g2_page=7

only thing I dont like about it is the wastegate placement on #4. it might be possible to do a collector-sourced gate pipe but it's tight in there.

also note the size of my compressor and how it fits without a sawzall heh heh!

Cleared PS no problem with a 2860RS 0.86

I then upgraded to a 2871R Tial housing and it was fine too. I never ran AC so i cant comment on that.

Edit: the hardest part was making an intake that would fit with a decent sized filter. i ended up running the filter under the headlight (headlight stationary) and the hot pipe through fender.... no decent pics of that.


Edit 2: oh yeah... i modded my PS low pressure hjose since it wouldnt work with this manifold

Edit 3: the manifold nut going on between cylinder #1 and #2 was a royal pain in the nuts to get to... figure this into future designs.

Damn! I learn so much on this forum. That explains why my MSP3 sounds like a Subie. I've always wondered...

Weird manifold on that car too. Has some sort of accordion looking gizmo between the 2 sets of runners. No idea wtf that does.

Yeah you're old ETD manifold I think is very nice, hits all the good points. Fits with A/C P/S, big turbos, decent room for downpipe. Not a fan of the collector (for no good reason other than it's not available commercially in schedule 40 so I'd have to make it myself...or use schedule 10 which is fine for that portion anyway) but it works for the design and it works for flow.

I think if it cleared PS then it should also clear AC. I like your manifold better than mine...oh well. My collector angle is tighter which forces the turbo further from the engine.

Anyway, manifold is done, I have to order a 90deg silicone 2 to 2.5" transition and a tight R 3" bend for my downpipe...I have enough scraps to do the downpipe now but if I have to wait for the silicone then I may as well also get a new fresh bend.

Tim it's time to make a collector pipe cut jig.

I'm sure you could come up with something that lets you vary the merge angle in both planes.

of course the next challenge I have for you is a twisted collector.

I will have a picture for you shortly.

Looks similar to the ones Ric Stephens (RacingMazda) used to make. Your collector is much nicer though.

Done, I hope. It was nice to finally wash off the cutoff wheel dust. It sounds the same as it's always have, not a cool boxer-ish rumble of the other brand manifold posted earlier here in this thread. Oh well. I only drove it around my block twice to make sure there was no leaks and grind off the rust on the brake disks. So far it only makes about 3psi at 2000 whereas my previous manifold, my replacement BEGI/FM tubular manifold, would make 5 or so. I may go out to get a ritas and play with it. Or I may drink some beers.

More pics here:
ABSURDflow highmount A/C P/S



ATP sent me a black silicone 90 instead of a blue which was even on the packing list in the box, oh well. I also have to throw on the toyota COPs, maybe.

Flipping the pipe between the black and the blue might give you a bit more room so the black hose isnt that sharply bent?
