^you're kidding me right?






you need to stop reading on miata.net. those are the same people who for YEARS thought the 12psi was the highest boost you could run on the miata and 250hp was all the motor can take. the coolant reroute is better for people doing road racing and even at that many people don't have cooling problems to begin with. do some research kid.

I don't think it was excess boost that cracked that manifold. It was vibrationzzzzzzz. "IMHO". Bump.

Do you think this was the case plainmiata? Think a brace (ala stock manifold) would have prevented it?

actually yes vibration does seem more logical. especially considering the miata engine does have a tendency to vibrate a bit. i would pay $40 to have it done but where i live there is no places that can do it that i trust. i was hoping that someone would recognize that this is truly a simple fix.

Ahh I hear ya. It is a good deal if a buyer does have a place they trust to weld it. I could buy it, fix it, and try to sell it but I don't have the cash to put out there at the moment.

Good luck with the sale. Bump...

Id repair it for 50$. Seems like an easy fix. Drill 1 small hole at each of the ends. Grind down till you have paperthin at the root. Weld, done. Whats the original price on this?
