Default Turbo Manifold question will this work?

i have a TD05 Big16 turbo and my Manifold has heat cracks in it. i dont know what kind it is but i am losing power and it is quite noisy.its time to replace it. and without breaking the bank my car has been sitting for a while and ready to get my car running. i lack a few things like putting on my PNP MegaSquirt i had made 4 years ago by Braineack. and cant seem to get it to communicate with anything. Me and fellow turbo Miata Engineer friend last year tried and he has a hydra with no problems, i REALLY REALLY want this to work.and any help would be appreciated. anyway would this Manifold work on my car?? i tried to attatch its from ebay and its a cast iron Mani.. seems legit but will it work?

With a t3 to eclipse td05 adapter it could work......as long as it the turbo doesn't hit the hood.

Is this the listing? Cast Iron Mazda Mitata NA 1 6L T3 T4 Turbo Manifold Exhaust 35 WG Keep AC PW | eBay

If so, your turbo will not bolt directly to that if it is a Mitsubishi-flanged hotside (which is likely given your description).

Do you have a megasquirt installed yet? How about a wideband O2 sensor? If those are done, stop screwing around with your ghetto setup and do things right. 1.8 swap to start. Then turbo correctly after that.

What Lars said.

What about the downpipe? it is most unlikely the current one will fit with the t3+ td05 adapter set up.
Either way you are getting into custom fabrication...

You could get another short life ebay manifold?
It would be better to make a proper replacement.

Default New pic of different set-up

so this is the only thing that will fit my current set-up? this is getting complicated as hell. unless i change my turbo to a different setup and manifold ,these parts are not interchangeable at all different mounting brackets etc etc. i am very limited to what i can do at this point correct?
