Semi thread jack.

Right now I have a hybrid BEGi reroute. I'm using their spacer and that's about it. I have no heater core.

The heater core outlet on the spacer routes directly to the long pipe that runs under the exhaust to the mixing manifold.

How bad would it be to plump the turbo coolant feed and return in the middle of this? I think it would be sufficient. I could be way off here.

Zero failures after 15,000 miles in 6 months, I'd say it does alright. But to be fair, I was skeptical if it would have any issues.

Hey Vlad,

Thread resurrection to say just like everyone you complain about at the start of this thread you didn't follow through and post your results at the end!

Found this thread when searching due to my mixing manifold issues, and figured I would LOL at you over not posting results in a thread where you complained about other people not posting their results

There is no follow through cause I didn't do it.
Kept original mixing manifold because I didn't feel like hacking or welding anything down there.
Also my S4 setup ended up clearing the manifold by mere millimeters. Then after I finished bolting things up I ran into bigger problems (you know what Im talking about). Then I changed the setup entirely and went with a sidemount setup. Then........etc

So yeah...

Got it! I wasn't sure if this was on one of your earlier cars, and what you ended up running on it.

Thanks
the "clean" way to do this is to buy the Protege FWD mixing manifold, you will have to find the protege or Mazdaspeed A/C bracket and corresponding compressor as the compressor sits lower to allow clearance to the mixing manifold. The Protege mixing manifold will bring the coolant hose up to the front and will help you clear your I/C pipes and Turbo oil drain line.

I stole this picture from google so you can see the Protege mixing manifold with an -8an fitting welded to it.
