I can name 3 off the top of my head right now. It might cost you a little bit, but if the turbo is a good fit, why not use it?

Dump the intercooler though.
actually i've mocked up the intercooler in my car and it fits quite well. Only reason I didnt use it is cause I didnt want to relocate my radiator. Takes a little imagination to make it work.

I think she'd want to keep it simple. The manifold would be easier to do than the radiator.

so let's see now....making a manifold and downpipe, and clocking the turbo is easier than making a couple brackets and lowering a radiator....right.....

considering all she'd have to do is say "make this and that". Yes I do. But since you have such great fab skills i guess it's different for a person of your experience

pipefather wont be the only one with a wrx turbo on his miata... currently installing one with a custom mani on my 92...

whats this about fab work? psshh.. go buy an ebay header, cut off the flange and have a downpipe fabbed. would still set you back less than a PNP kit.

You should research that ebay manifold for a minute or two before you do that. Search some threads on this site.
