They are sold out on ebay which is one of the only places to get it.

Instead, buy a 1.8 and use this then tell me how it goes.

TacoTaco actually has 2 1.8 cast manifolds now. I think the difference is EWG or not, but I have not looked in a few weeks. I will probably end up picking one up sometime in the next few months to try out.

I think they have two flange offerings as well.
Budgeter MKtrubo kit?
It might make it easy to offer a kit for T2 turbos as well.

I just found a t3 flanged one. Honestly it would not change the cost of the kit any. I am also not sure if the turbo I use would fit with the v-band outlet. Might be to far back to build a downpipe and not hit the back shelf.

T2 setups are off the table. I don't like build the weird shaped outlets, and I can't find a reliable cheap t25 exit flange to 2.5" v-band pipe.

I don't think it will fit with a downpipe without significantly cutting the back shelf.

Lars, if I buy one and ship it your way could you easily snap some clearance photos for us?

Thanks for moving the thread, kinda felt bad for totally stealing it.

I bought my cast 1.6 manifold (TaquitoTaquito?) from MiragePower2008 while TacoTaco didn't have any listed. I think they're the same seller as they even have what appears to be the same weird looking cast 1.8 manifold.94 05 Miata 1 8L Racing T2 T25 T28 Cast Iron Exhaust turbocharger Manifold Unit | eBay

I'm no longer allowed to purchase things from ilovetacotaco, and it seems to have blocked miragepower2008 as well. Them being one in the same is the only thing that makes sense.

New cheap intercooler on the way, hope for better results this time!

I have a 1.6 tacotaco manifold I no longer need now that I'm 1.8 swapped. $75 shipped? I put relief cuts in the flange for expansion and whatnot.

Yeah if you want to I can take some pictures of it on a NA and NB most likely. I probably won't pick one up for a while. I sort of splurged these past 4 days on a ton of other miata parts.

That is a large part, also buying a VVT motor and NB subframe. Honestly don't even know what the VVT motor is going to be used for. Probably a nice garage decoration on an engine stand, until I find a car to put it in.

If you wouldn't mind, that'd be sweet

I won't need it back for a while, anyway.
