Default Turbo Build Help!!!!!

Have a 91 NA still at 1.6 Not gonna lie really just made an account for some help on a build a buddy of mine and I are trying to get together. So any help would be accepted!
So far here is what Ive purchased and just the build so far as in getting stuff together.
Turbo: New 16g from godspeed
Manifold/DP: Godspeed's setup
Intercooler: universal from ebay
BOV: HKS
Injectors: I'm not clueless of what to run Ive heard the 460cc off the rx7 are pretty good.
ECU: this is what I have so far. Fuel management I'm looking to get the MS PnP anyone on here selling or know of someone selling w/ Harness please let me know ive done quite some research and I know DIYautotune carries them as well, but wouldn't mind saving some cash!
Like I said anyyyyy help would be appreciated!

Your manifold will crack in less than a month.

There is a button near the top of the website, it's called Search. Click it and behold the wonder.

I used to have one. I never ran it, though. Basically I bought it and then my friends and I laughed at how stupid I was when we inspected it. I decided to keep it in the box. It never made it on my car. Those manifolds are made from ultra thin stainless scrap. There are tons of posts about them cracking, sometimes after the first heat cycle.

You don't even need to search. It's literally a sticky on the forum you just posted this too.

Yeah Godspeed doesn't actually make a manifold for the miata. There is a knockoff called godpseed that is based on the same crap manifold that has been for sale for years now. It is 100% garbage. Don't use it.

If you can weld it and brace it after it cracks then go ahead but from what it sounds like, just buy a real manifold and downpipe and be done with it
