LOL, for $19 more you can get the same manifold at BEGi, retail... I wonder how FAR, FAR below cost FM really believes they are selling this manifold for $300. I almost want to laugh. I bet if you wanted this manifold and told Corky FM was selling one for $300, that he'd undercut them.

Sure is pretty, but what would it be like on a 99+ since it doesn't have the butterfly's halfway through the runners?

i believe the '99+ heads a different pattern. i don't think it would fit.

ceramic coated? either way they have that dippy text on them. next time you speak with corky, tell him to dump that crap and put the begi logo there.

Whats the deal with Bell and FM...bad parting of ways or what?


Might be fun to post that question up in the FI section and see if I get banned.

I really wish BEGi would make one for the 1.6.

I'd also like a 1.6 mani. Perhaps if enough of us show interest, Corky will fab it up. 10% increase for $300 ain't bad.

There used to be a link for Bells manifold on their site. I can't find it. I thought it was red with "Bell" on it but I could be wrong.

It is able to fit both heads depending on how the Manifold is drilled. Yep there is enough meat for both bolt patterns.

+1 on this. I spoke with Corky once about modifying this same intake manifold for a second fuel rail (a la BIGTURBO's setup) and IIRC, the price for the same intake manifold modified for two fuel rails was not much more...

The previous manifolds said flyin miata. But now they say Miata turbo. We recently rejected a batch of manifolds from the foundry due to missing letters. The casting said "IATA TURBO".

Guess they never heard of spell check? Anyway, info and photos on the manifold are on the 'In the Shop' page.

Stephanie is there any chance Corky might make a manifold for the 1.6?

Somebody could get a REALLY good deal on a "Iata Turbo" manifold.
