Default starting my build soon

Ok, so I have been lurking on here for a few days and finally decided to post. I am planning on turboing my 1990 1.6 miata. I have done a lot of reading and research and from what I gather, Ebay kits are BAD. So I have been pricing out td04 and t25 turbos. I think I will go with the t25 from an sr20, found this one, http://orlando.craigslist.org/pts/3951330335.html . Now my question right now is, where would I find a good manifold tgat will fit the 1.6 engine, I can fab up a down pipe since I have full acess to a machine and fab shop. But I would rather just buy a manifold. And as for the ECU I plan on going with a Megasquirt PNP2, should have it by the end of next month.

begi or FM for the manifold is the easy, cheap and quick option.

drunk parts shopping is always the correct way to build a car

I saw that on the for sale section. It is tempting. But I am saving the money for the potential most expensive part in my build, the Megasquirt PNP2. If it is still avalible when I get to that point, which I doubt it will be, I will definitely get ahold of you.
