Christ, don't you people read anything on this forum? That manifold is a piece of ****. Everything on eBay regarding manifolds and downpipes are generally pieces of ****, with the exception of the odd HKS/BEGi/ETD private sale. Don't come crying to us in 3 months when your discount chinese POS manifold has cracked in 3 places and you're tired of paying the wrench monkey at Midas to reweld it for you.

it's true eunos... most people do complain about the mani's breaking..... just have a welder's # in handy cuz they tend to crack.... mine hasn't yet tho *knock on wood*

the welds are the problem by the way.... not the manifold itself.... so you need not worry about the material

How did 1-2 years turn into 3-4 years in 4 weeks?

https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/sho...6&postcount=11

Also, this guy, who said his OBX manifold was holding up great, was complaining after a MONTH that it had cracked 3 times.

https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/sho...acked+manifold

But hey, what do I know. My BEGi manifold did 7,000 miles since July, including 8 track days. No cracks. 15psi from a GT2554R, dynoed at 219whp on a shitty timing map at Thanksgiving.

Magna doesn't have the OBX manifold, he has the SSAutoChrome Manifold....there's a bit of a difference....however, the difference isn't in quality.

The OBX is flanged for a t3, it's cheap and WILL eventually crack....just as easily as your SSAC stuff WILL crack....and yes Manga's has cracked, and so have various other member's here who have tried it.
