Default Miata Head Flange Drawing

We like to share what we design. This has not been tested yet, but should be shortly. So don't go building it without your own testing.





And the file

It is 1/2" thick, and built for 1-1/2" schedule 40 pipe.

Props awarded, if I get a chance I'll laser the head side out of cardboard to confirm fitment.

Looks good. Yours matches my head scan data perfectly.

I guess I've been living under a rock. When did 1.5" pipe become the manifold size of choice?
Definitely not a fluids engineer so I won't try and claim one is better than the other, but I'd have to have a good reason to build a manifold with 1.5 instead of 1.25.

Great question. I used 1.5" sch. 40 because it matched the factory port size when I smooshed it oval with a press. If you're making a fancy flange with a loft between the oval and round cross section, I'd think about doing it for 1.25" pipe too.

I used 1.5" because that seems to be the common pipe size. My current manifold is built out of 1.25".

I'll see about getting a 1.25" drawn up. 1.25" shedule 40 is pretty small ID though compared to the ports.

Oh now I remember why 1.5". ACE Race doesn't have 321SS in 1.25 schedule 40.
