This is great! I new it could be done, but was just curious why I don't see it done more often. The welds on the manifold look fantastic, i'm sure this will hold up great.

I'm definately keeping my FM3 manifold now. HX30 here I come

Very true. But you can't beat a casty for a daily.

So a HTA3076 is a 3076 garrett with a HTA made billet compressor wheel? Just wondering, don't know much at all about HTA. I could google. Nah.

Turbine AR looks to be .82 (2803 cast into turbine, read it backwards. GT30 turbine, .82 A/R)

You are right it is a GT3076R with a HTA billet wheel that is light and bigger then the normal GT3076r wheel if flows 57lb but spool just as fast if not faster.

That's REAL close. Are you going to notch/trim the shelf?

Im down to see this.


From what i read the spool will be slightly faster and you should make more power at the same psi being that the compressor wheel is more efficient.

i think that tilt should be just fine, a lot of applications tilt the turbo towards the hotside like that.

That looks rediculous. Way to be. I didn't think I would see a turbo that big on a miata... ever...

You've never seen a 30r on a miata? Where have you been the past year?
