haha. I will do that for your manifold Matt. On my to-do list is get a quote for a tag to weld onto the pipes like every other major manufacturer but I spend my lunches either drilling inconel or burning calories in the gym. I could use the 'drop out' letters from the tag! haha. Then again why add cost. I do have that laser engraver at my disposal. Able to engrave around pipe too...but so what.

Super baller would be one single continuous mandrel bent pipe.

Tim, Ive been looking at your setups for awhile now and was wondering. What turbos can the tial housing connect up to? I know it will be awhile before i can even really think about having one of your setups, but I still want to entertain my mind with ideas of what I would run.

Smallest cold side is the GT2860RS. Largest is...well huge I'm sure. Tial does not have a turbine housing for GT25XX turbos and smaller. However ATP will machine a vband inlet into a garrett castiron GT25XX turbine but you'll still stuck with the bolted downpipe flange.

I've seen bolt on downpipe flange to vband adapters. I think I saw it on godspeed or cxracings site.

I wonder who these happy new owners are? I am very glad to see more 300+ miatas are being built!

Fwiw if they are reading we should eventually compare spool data- I am running a log with 3071 and .86 AR. I'd expect you to hit 15psi at 3300RPM since I do at 38/39. Sounds like low rpm but maybe its possible with da flow..

Compare spool data would be cool. Now, I just have to get my engine back from my engine builder. I wonder the same for the 2nd AF setup since black one belongs to me.

frank lloyd wright with a welder....love it. The engineering in this thing is clear--between the EWG reinforcements and the flex coupling that thing is going to stay solid for a long long time.

I'm afraid to ask how many hours are in each one.

I've used ATP adapters, same stuff. That's one way around having to always remove those 5 downpipe bolts. There's room for it on this manifold; I'd rock it if I were tracking the car with this setup in T2/IWG flavor or having the need to remove the downpipe all the time.

$95?! That doesn't even include the hardware or vband clamp and the other side of the flange. I'm sure the ebay ones are far cheaper and probably would last fine. But unknown vband flange size on ebay versions??

turbo & MVS, $3k insured ground shipping, yeah. These with 3071's are 2900-ish, 2871's were 100 less. I got a sninkin hunch that tial raised the prices $40 since these were bought. Plus little nickel n dime stuff, like extra O2 bungs and drilled bolts, that stuff adds up too. The black one there (aznDragon's) is getting one of the vibrant Evac's added now ($60), etc.

Tim, that is just fan-*******-tastic.

However, I can't help myself here, it's just the first thing that popped into my head:

Every time I see pics of your work I'm more impressed than the last. Beautiful! And these pics are great, especially the flange-to-flange shots...looks like an HR Giger drawing has come to life.

Damn, I drool over the standard low-mount setup as is.

The v-band setups are but a dream. A dream that I'll end up with after 2 track days on a standard bolted manifold lol.
