Default Tubular Manifold?

Hi guys new to the forum, but not the miata world. Looking to turbo my 1990 na with a 1999 bp4w swap. Going to be piecing a turbo kit together this winter that will hopefully be ready to drive for the spring. Anyway I found this custom made manifold for sale and it looks pretty intriguing. Anybody have input on such a piece? Thanks.

Can you fab everything else yourself? IE can you build your own down pipe? I would not touch that with a 10 foot pole.

If you are serious about turboing your miata you should read my 6 step sticky thread.

The manifold would require a TON of custom fab work and would also be prone to cracking. Looks like a nice manifold though.

why not get a proven cast manifold, which comes with a matched downpipe?

unless you want to sink money into making a custom downpipe then realize you cant easily route the EWG dump back into the downpipe easily, and end up with a hood exist dump like all the cool kids?
