You're a village ***** and its a shame you haven't already shipped it so I could keep the money and blow fish-scale off a hooker's *** with it. With any luck I'll do that before I send it so at the least you can touch something that's been near a woman's sex organs.

its like the gnome that gets shipped everywhere.

I guess I'm thinking of something different, or talking out my *** again. It's been a while.

Ahh. You can sorta see in this pic, the only one I have uploaded. The left turbo is a 56 trim 2871, .86A/R, middle and right the standard 2560 & 2554.

well, the tial housings are much smaller than standard turbine housings so there may be a distinguishable difference.

I'm not talking about this new manifold. This one seems solid

I don't know about that. Sav's turbine is a lot closer to "hit block" than any of the standard turbine setups I've done.

Take your own advice. "The standard S4 has a really nice collector," your words. It's not nice.

He is talking about the way that they all come together. The angles that the tubes join and how they flow with each other. Not so much about the welding or looks.

BTW, the S4 manifold is actually a very nice manifold. I have one and love the hell out of it. I just want V-bands for the track.

So it is interesting BEGI did not use the separate runner/collector EWG setup they were working on for the S4. I thought they had tried a simple branch tube at the collector (like this one) and were having boost creep problems. This manifold though is a bit different than the S4 so maybe that takes care of it.

At any rate, looks great, should work great too.

Forget my last post, I was picturing this:



I don't know what the inside of the regular s4 looks like, but judging by the outside it does look like it would flow well.

The S4 is a braced ebay mani? What the hell are you talking about?

I'll 3rd Savington and Rharris's statements. The collector on my absolutely-not-ebay-or-made-in-china S4 mani is very well done.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. This design (picture) seems like it would work better, considering there isn't a 90 degree bend for the exhaust to travel through to the wastegate. Maybe testing didn't go too well...

I am far from a track rat and won't even pretend that I am not a novice. I'm just getting this car set-up so I have one less thing to worry about.

Testing took a brief (lol) hiatus... testing will begin again very soon.

One of these is from an ebay auction.



vs




Check your egr, does the weld look different from the rest of the manifold? it was added later.

the wg setup cant be adapted to the original s4 manifold because 16/18ga material cannot hold the wieght of a wastegate. It breaks right off.

Why does Dallas have a disproportionately high number of turbo Miata owners who are mouth-breathing retards?
