That looks like a weld issue more than a metal issue to me

Doesn't look like a weld issue necessarily. Looks more like a design issue/metal thickness issue.

this flange is also missing three holes for the mounting bolts, thats kinda important...

Is it worth even speaking about manifold performance when most guys will pee more PSI than the turbo will produce! IMHO for Miata/MX5 on stock motors a simple el'cheapo cast item will suffice and spend the saving on fuel/ignition control.

I'll agree 1.75 pennies worth of this statement.

i disagree with not using a good manifold just because of stock motor. to be honest i belive just the opposite. If your trying to make good power on a stock motor use a better manifold , make more power and reduce heat. i would like to know exactly what manifold design the m-tuned guy was or is running on his 350+hp stock motor car/cars.
i for one am going to have a custom top mount made out of 321 ss. 304 seems to crack always and the guy whos doing my manifold agrees that 321 is the best way if longevity is a concern.
