Default Turbo manifolds please help

Well first hi my name is Matt i just recently got out of the honda scene i have a 95 civic sohc making around 500whp but i got tired of the whole honda front wheel drive problem lol but enough of that.

I'm pretty good when it comes to turbo charging n stuff. But i do have one problem i havnt been able to find alot of decently priced external wastegate manifolds for the kit im building for my 99 miata. So my question is if some of you guys could help me find some manifolds. So far ive found the ones on Begi i like them but they are kinda pricey im shooting for the 200-300 range if possible.

Also could i get some help with some links to downpipes aswell. I havnt found alot of those either.

Thanks!

-Matt

Welcome to the site....

I take it you didnt really browse this site at all, because just a few threads down there was another noob asking the same question, not to mention searching "turbo manifold" would find you dozens of threads where this has been discussed in length.
We have recently had a change of heart on here and try to be more nice to new members, so I'll put it as nicely as I can:

1) go to the noob section and introduce yourself, this way we know you are here to learn and contribute and didnt just google "miata turbo" and started posting randomly.
2) fill out your location in your profile so that any locals in your area can help you out a big better.
3) fill out your signature with car details as well as all thats done to it so far.
4) S E A R C H, this forum has a great section of useful saved posts as well as faq's. anything you wont find in there you can easily hit the search function, type it in, and it will find you a ton of info that is available on the subject. Should you not find anything while searching, we will be happy to answer the question for you, but something like turbo manifold has been discussed so much I dont think there is one single bit of information that has been omitted..

that said, begi does make some great manifolds, as well as flying miata, etd, and many others.

good luck

Do everything that 18psi said. Especially items one through three. People here will help you if you play by the rules, otherwise they will hang you out to dry. The answers you seek are available in the stickys and the search functions on this forum. One of the best stickys is in the Meet and Greet section (sometimes referred to as the "noob" or "newb" section).

In case you are wondering, the correct spelling is "haven't". And the personal pronoun "I" should be capitalized.

Welcome to the forum. We look forward to sharing your DIY experience with you.

Also, try not to use "passive voice" because it confuses reader.s On miatatrubo we write directly and succinctly.

Thanks,
Lord Hustler

Damn, I'm impressed hustler knows what passive voice is. But I guess some ugly chicks are smart, maybe he picked up more than the clap from his last gf.

Welcome newb. 18psi covered it all.

Thanks for using an inordinate amount of passive verbs. See you in Houston on the 31st...you're a dead ************.

how many of those were retired special operatives with over 100 kills? I'm not talking, "oh I threw a grenade into a school house" kills. I'm talking about "cutting a ************'s head off with a letter opener" kills.

At least one, and he was my dad.

That's right, I'm such a bad *** I kicked my own dad right in the ***, and then made him think that was the fun part of the fight.

so what do you want, a fight to the death with the weapon of your choice, or arm-wrestling for supremacy? Choose your fate.

Arm wrestling, that way we can do it on the table at hooters after a couple of pitchers, then the winner (me) can take the waitress back to your hotel room and tear it up while the loser (you) watches.

I think hustler is strangely okay with that.

By strangely, I mean perfectly. As long as he can ********** in the corner while watching. When he does that, he calls those nights "Tuesdays"

nah, I'll bring my 22-year old oil-dog Houston honey over, lol. As long as we don't make eye contact or touch *****, we're cool. I'd love to keep her, but I'm not moving to Houston and she's not moving to Dallas.

note from moderator:

you have exhibited "lame n00b" tendencies by posting this thread. your infractions include:

1. not using the meet n greet section
2. posting questions so basic you'd get more search results than you could possibly use. try it. just search "manifold" or "downpipe" and while you're at it search "ebay manifold" so you dont make that mistake.
3. we dont know what area you're in (maybe someone near by can help you)
4. we dont know what kind of car you own. and if it's a miata, what year.
5. you let almost 20 posts show up in this thread before you came back and redeemed yourself by being smarter than we thought.

if you want to avoid having your threads closed or being picked on until you act like a jerk and are banned for acting like a jerk, consider this a helpful warning.

I have a meeting there on alternating saturdays, but I usually drive the rental.
