Side by side of Squaretop (left) and VTCS (right). Gaskets are not interchangeable.

Squaretop intake runner openings are significantly larger, 50mmID vs 43mmID. I find it interesting the squaretop gasket only seals the outer perimeter.

Dumb question - Will squaretop cause (stock computer) NB to throw a code if you switch from the 01-05 manifold? I am guessing it will but it's worth asking.

Are the ports on the flange that meets the head the same or bigger? Nice size improvement for sure. Looks like a different gasket too, anyone have a part number or link?

You can hook everything up except VTCS. I don't know if that will throw a code or not.

Email Miataroadster or Corksport, they should be able to source the gasket for you. I know Bill at Miataroadster can.

Well the gasket is $30 plus shipping. The manifold I was working on getting doesn't have one which kind of kills the deal. Anyone else have anything square and spare?

The Honda intake route might be worth a look. Skunk2 rep ($120)+Miata flange ($50)+welding ($50)+honda throttle body($30) = ~$250

I just can't justify the $400+shipping I've been seeing lately.

I think I recall someone working on a manifold that should be released soon. I can't recall who?

So sell me your Skunk2 then. I do not imagine you will get a squaretop for much less. They are cheaper now than several years ago. I got my first squaretop for $500.

New shot with a re-set catch can. Should work much better with a real PCV.
