Default 1.8 DOHC Turbo Manifold T3/T4 flange, $200

This is a Mazda Miata Turbo Manifold, NEVER been used.

This is the description exactly as the one on EBAY, only mine has the T3/T4 adapter.

Brand New Turbo Manifold for Miata 1.8L NA Convert to Turbo Setup
T3/T4 Turbo Flange
This turbo manifold will fit 1.8L only 95-99
SUS304 STAINLESS STEEL
MANDREL BENT TUBES - NOT CRUSH BENT!
EACH MANIFOLD PORTED AND POLISHED FOR THE MOST POWER

Why selling?

Because it was going on a Protege 1.8 DOHC, the manifold extends out too much and would not fit. Major modifications to radiator, fan, etc and after installing the T3/T4 flange ended just buying a smaller turbo manifold to fit on my Mazda Protege(323) with the 1.8.

The manifold is brand new, will deliver anywhere in the US with free shipping. Because the T3/T4 flange was in steel, not the same as the tubes which are in stainless steel, it cost $150.00 and that was cheap in North California, all welding shops charged at least $90 to $120 an hour for such weld, which is ridiculous, but I did it. If at least I can recover some of it I will be happy.

Do I have to point the fail in this sale? Or will someone else do it? Because apparently I just thread crap on it.

EDIT: I forgot to add to this: I have had the ebay mani... crack city with these. It will last 2 months on DD use before it leaks.

-You dont weld Stainless Steel with aluminum, its not possible. As what i can see, that T3 flange is mild steel, so the weld is either stainless, or just mild, so the metals are mixed.


just one hell of a no-go.

I know I got raped back then but everywhere I went was charging me an arm and a leg for welding in aluminum.
Lets clarify:
is this an ebay special? yes or no.
do you seriously think its aluminum? yes or no

No thread crapping here, just some constructive criticism:
Your "facts" are completely bs and everyone with half a brain will realize that you copy/pasted an ebay listing that makes it sound MaD tYte JDm y0


That said: GOOD LUCK WITH THE SALE. You'll need it

My bad, I think if I recall well the welder brought a magnet and it would stick to the flange, but not the runners. So he stated it was difficult to weld as they are 2 different materials and welding is much more difficult.

So, my bad, it is NOT aluminum.

No, I copy pasted the description from EBAY as it is the same identical turbo manifold, NO IT IS NOT listed on EBAY, not even CL, only here.

Yes I know the one from EBAY is a T28 T25, I am selling with a T3/T4 flange...

Mine is brand new, I have never ever used it...

Bump

Ok, I am lowering the price to 150.00 shipped, remember mine has the T3/T4 flange, not the t25/28.

I am trying to figure out how to change the price on the title.

I forgot I had another account many years ago and that is the one I got in other forums.

Anyway, what I have seen people do is place a brace/support from the turbo to the engine block so there is no weight on the turbo manifold.

The manifold I am selling is brand new, never used it. I bought it for a Protege but but noticed I have to get a smaller radiator and modify a lot to make it fit. I decided to get one from a GTR or GTX engine.

The price is 150.00 including shipping.
