Thanks for the backup @wittyworks, @turbotim.

It will clear easily. the turbo is placed forward a bit of my TiAL Vband manifolds that already work on LHD Miata.



Solid placement. I spent a whole day perfecting the placement and orientation of the jig JUST for the 1.6 engine. You should be able to tell how much effort was incorporated with the placement pictures I posted. Giant turbo no hit block, no hit frame, no hit steering rack.
For those of us that do fab work you will know that is a lot of time to spend, but I needed to make sure that the jig is perfect before you can build a bunch off of it with repeatability.

T2 divided downpipe for the 1.6 Miata manifold I built to fit both EFR and Garrett Turbos.

Wastegate divider still needs trimming, add an o2 bung and finish the inside weld that I was getting too shakey to finish...

It will be a serious improvement over the existing super old begi kit you have. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the car before and after.


Do you have the wastegate yet?

Not yet. Waiting for a huge overtime cheque I'm getting next week, then I'll pick one up. I may stick with the Turbosmart theme and get one of theirs, or just get a tial 38mm like I had on my old setup.

Ive been busy! One more setup to do before Im all caught up to the current workload.


Ive spent a LOT of time and money over the last few months setting up my fixtures for Miata manifolds. My downpipe is the same with 1.6L and 1.8L now. Pretty obvious advantage.

Hello Matt,

I've sent you several messages since receiving my intake manifold in hopes that you will come good for the $600 manifold I bought from you that did not fit.

I paid an extra $250 from my own pocket an addition to buying your manifold in order to have it repaired.

You've admitted that you used the wrong jig to make it and it did not have provisions to fit my car whatsoever.

I'm sure this is all a misunderstanding but since you haven't replied to any messages since March 16th. I unfortunately have to take this to this forum.

I trust you'll live up to your reputation and I'll hear from you shortly.

Matt,

Still no word and I've been blocked from your @hellafabrication IG page as well.

The world is a small place my fellow Canadian friend...one should be careful before making enemies.

All the best

Alex
