There's probably more than 300 in that thing in materials alone if its ss. Even if mild steel I'd guess well over 250.

Looks pretty decent, that tubing looks thick, so no ebay quality here. I might even be interested in it! The easy way to find out if its SS or MS, put a SMALL dab of water on the shiny part of the flange, and leave it for at the most a day. This method is kinda redneck, but it works.

Put a magnet on it. If its mild it will stick. Stainless it will fall off.

measure the dimensions of the turbo flange and the WG flange, report back, i'm sure someone will come up with an answer. either t2 or t3, so that's a start.

btw, you're in raleigh? where do you stay? what kind of miata? i used to live in raleigh, now in erwin. i work in smithfield. are you by any chance a member of TMR?

EDIT: looked over your sig...got the "what kind of miata" part down.
