Cool The 18psi "thuper duper awethum pothum" FM/ABSURD/CUSTOM *uber spool* turbo setup

Hopefully the titlie will get a few chuckles

Pretty much everyone here either knows me or knows who I am, and knows my seller/buyer reputation, so I'll keep this short and sweet:
-I was going to run this setup on my NB2, which I traded for a different car because a) I'm crazy b)I got an MSM as well.
-Everything but the turbo and heat shields is BRAND NEW and the turbo is virtually brand new, meaning freshly rebuilt/balanced and cleaned to perfection, with ZERO miles after rebuild.

List of highlights (off the top of my head):
-Garrett T25G Turbo, completely rebuilt/re-balanced/media blasted and cleaned, clocked for side mount duty and wastegate can re-located for proper location/operation. Virtually new, 0 miles.
-Absurdflow tubular manifold. This thing is a work of art, seriously. Brand new.
-Flyin Miata stainless downpipe. Brand new in packaging with all hardware and gaskets.
-Bar and Plate front mount intercooler (Godspeed typeM), with professionally welded solid-mount brackets for a complete bolt-in install. Brand new.
-Flyin Miata silicone molded intercooler pipes. Brand new
-Flyin Miata silicone lower radiator hose. Brand new.
-Flyin Miata solid water lines. Brand new.
-Flyin Miata cold air box and turbo heat shields. Virtually new.
-Flyin Miata downpipe support brace. Brand new.
-Flyin Miata Inconel turbo manifold studs. Brand new
-Flyin Miata stainless braided turbo oil feed line with proper fittins on both ends. Brand new
-Stage8 turbo manifold fasteners. Brand new
-Turbosmart style 25mm piston-style adjustable bov/bpv. Brand new

As far as I know, this should fit all 1.8 miata's, so 94-05. I know for sure it will fit all NB's.
This is a great street setup, I'm really bummed I did not get to run it. This is essentially a "completely upgraded" FM non electronics setup, which STARTS at $2999+shipping, minus the 2560, but with a turbo that you can rebuild in the future (not that you'd need to, since this one should be good for at least 100,000 miles as it sits). This should spool stupid fast. Like off-idle boost. The only things that I can think of needed for this setup is: an air filter, a bung for the bov.

I am not at this time interested in parting out, want to try selling together until further notice. Don't bother lowballing me, I'm having a hard time even considering selling this, much less selling it for a song. Asking $2400






























Any questions, please PM me.
Thanks

And the manifold. FM manifold sucks compared to this manifold damnit. EDIT: end user will have to trim two of the lower manifold bolts. Like this:


This one was originally made for EO2K who supplied the BMC Race 3-axis head flange. Not my typical smooshed oval pipes at the head flange. 1/8NPT EGT port there at the turbo flange. It's REM polished mild steel so coat it or paint it if you don't want it to look rusty. Although if you keep it dry it should look all sorts of pretty purples for quite a while. Like this, also a REM'ed mild steel, but a different manifold obviously.

GLWS Vlad, let me know who buys it so I can update my spreadsheet.

I'd ban him for spamming but I'm on the awful mobile app right now and might accidentally ban most of the people in the thread. Sorry.

What keeps this shorty tubey weld-el mani from cracking like my ETD? Not hitting the track?

Better build quality, properly braced downpipe, gussets, and a builder that's still alive, on this forum, and standing behind his products would be my guess. I haven't even used it, its brand new, much less tracked it. I see other ABSURDflow bits tracked like crazy and running like champs. There's a reason everyone begs Tim to build these.

Can this make 200+ whp?

What size is the downpipe?

All I can think of that is needed is the rest of the exhaust, drill the oilpan, injectors, and engine management? Am I missing anything?

EDIT: You said to PM you for questions, my bad.

Compatible with A/C and power steering?

If so I think I just found my Christmas gift to myself!

*EDIT* This looks like "Tubular Replacement Manifold VERSION 2" I don't see any mention of power steering+A/C compatibility mentioned. Doesn't look promising.

Out of curiosity only, would this manifold be a direct replacement for the Begi/FM cast manifold without needing to change anything else?

That was the point of it, yes. Unless I'm wrong, but im pretty sure that's one of the replacement ones.

Tim should have the comparison logs of how much better it was over the cast manifolds
