Default turbo manifold question?

A couple of people told me that a Honda b18 or b16 turbo manifold would fit my my car. I have a 1.6 1993 Mata. I was wondering if anybody knew if that was true,or if they were lying.

The 16 in B16 is just for 1600cc, and the 6 in B6 is for 1600cc.

Do the maths bro. Why are you finding this manifold thing so hard? Just buy the damned thing already.

after enough grinding and welding any manifold will fit lol


If you google the b16 and b6 manifolds you'll see how far off they are

It should be possible to hack it in there if you use the inside studs on top. Gasket will be tricky though.

^This sums it up perfectly. Just be careful when selecting a Honda manifold. Usually Miata manifolds are t25, most Honda manifolds are t3. What's the difference? Depends on much v tec you want to crack.
