Default New Turbo Manifold?

has anyone seen this or had experience... i noticed these pop up on ebay the other day... they look decent just wish they were ext. wastegate .. easy fix though..

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DOC-Race-Maz...sories&vxp=mtr

however when you go to the website to look at installed pics it only lists the 13b as the only Mazda manifold they have.

Looks decent. It does have an EWG port, its right under the flange pointing down with a 38mm MVS flange.

ha guess that's what i get for looking at them on my shitty phone. I didn't even notice that, ha i was wondering why they made all the other manifolds with ewg flanges and not this one..

Doc race is a fabricator that's on the Honda tech welding and fabrication forum. I'd check out his posts and work on there before buying, but from what I remember they are pretty high quality.

definitely looks legit, but for that kinda cash its not anything better or cooler than what artech/absurdflow would make for you for same or less money

at least doesn't look like it

This looks like it would be a good item, as for the price, I'm not a fan.

I'd like to see it on a car first before dropping coin.

Also, "Stainless with thick piping" wouldn't it for me. Anything other than mild steel and sch.40 pipe and I'd look the other way.

yeah putting together a pretty manifold is one thing, getting it to work properly, fit properly, and last is another

proven products with track records>new stuff by unknown vendors.

Pretty much took the words out of my mouth. Sch.10 stainless on a big runner, long tube manifold and a motor that vibrates like a tractor. That manifold is in Absurdflow territory and baller ARtech land for the price.

I would like to see a build thread, though. Anyone know where to look? I'm sure he built this manifold for someone and not just for fun.
