OP. You could have posted only the first picture, which was pertanent to your question; and avoided all the grief that was spawned from the second one.

I needed this. I feel so much better about myself. It is like watching a episode of "Hoarders" or "Maury Povich" and thinking that your life could be so much worse. Seriously...Thank you.

If you learn something from viewing all these replies, let it be this:

https://www.miataturbo.net/diy-turbo...t-build-89969/ -- Properly done budget build.

Please do not call this a build, or even budget. Retard fits, unlike your 'downpipe'.

Looks like your valve cover is leaking.

What heat shield is that?

Where can I get Danger Danger decals for my winshield?

I love this. Some people actually offer advice, but then still call you a retard.

I love this place.

I can only imagine how different this thread would be if the OP just included the first picture. Besides a leaky valve cover gasket one would most likely only assume that OP is only having issues with the manifold and would have refrained from the extreme ridicule and informing him of the wide range of quite obvious other issues brought about by the second picture. Next time don't include unnecessary pictures that seem to just be there to bring up discussion on the...ummm..."quality" of the rest of your project and its just a good idea anyway to only include what is necessary in pictures to make the intent of your post more clear because as it sits you post includes a completely unnecessary photo that appears to be placed there for attention purposes, Just a thought.

There is a difference between building on a budget vs. building beyond reasonable means.

What you're doing here is retarded, you're wasting your time building a piece of **** that going to run like crap, break down every other day. Its not worth it.

It costs too much to be a retard.
