Mt.net does not condone racial slurs or slavery.

I really don't see a issue. Can you help clear up what the problem is here. Is it because i used the term "bengi"? Witch could sissy be a name? it's a common use on thus forum. And i didn't even have it capitalized so clearly my intention was not to use it as a name.

it's slang for someone who is bangladeshi.

and we don't normal support human trafficking on this site

it was a poor joke at best.

I'd probably pay at least $100 for it, personally.

$150-$250 for used log mani
$150-$350 for gt2554 depending on condition
$40 or so for oil lines

I'd say somewhere around $400 for all.

Well all the negative feedback was from me taking about buying a Ebay as manifold for $51 shipped....I was flamed and ridiculed...I then welded a flange brace on it and sold it for $130....yep I must be stupid....then I just got the items described in this add for $200 shipped....and they are in great shape... Did the miata because my wife needs a new daily..was considering putting it for sale at $299 give someone a good price and make a few bucks.... but apparently are all just a bunch of jerks on here so I won't sell to any of you anyway I'll use it for my next Miata

calling us jerks, at least in this thread, is unwarranted.

buying a shitty manifold and then selling it to someone for profit, knowing it is a cheap product that won't last, is jerky.
