i was about to start mocking up a manifold just like this with weld-els. I would love to see it on an engine with a 2560 or bigger. see how it fits up.

I know you mentioned the manifold can be tap'd for either a T2 or T3, but are you planning on making that sweet cast downpipe elbow in a traditional 5 bolt pattern? (2554/2560/etc)

Sorry about the engine bay, this one may be cut into a kart or offroad thing, just not getting along with it




















this is the turbo in the photo

i am happy with the prices quoted, it will be under 400USD inc shipping

I can make anything, if you guys want it. I will happily oblige if there 10 or more people involved and you can wait 60 days

actually, if anyone has any ideas, i can probably make it happen

So I've been talking to Kraken and I think I'm going to be the first (or one of) to pull the trigger. I'll be getting a T2 tapped manifold and 3 Inch DP to mate to my SR20 T25 w/ Billet wheel. I'll keep you guys updated on my thoughts throughout the whole process.

For those interested, I'm trying to make a FM "like" kit. Which includes this Manifold + DP, Water and Oil Lines, Inconel Studs +Stage 8 Hardware, FM's silicone intercooler piping and either an ebay intercooler or Fab9 tuning IC.

Are you getting it for the 1.8 or 1.6? I would be interested in a 1.8 kit (manifold, dp elbow, downpipe) for a T2. I currently have the FM diy kit for the 1.6 but I'm swapping my motor so I need 1.8 parts.

I will definitely be interested in a 1.8l manifold. Will you have a full piping kit available for the China charger you posted? I would be interested in pulling the trigger on the entire kit!

[Edit]: This turbo:

T25 T28 GT25 GT28 GT2871 GT2860 SR20 CA18DET A/R .64 Turbo Turbocharger RPF


This would be big enough for a 1.8l right?

What turbos are you guys running on the T2 ? I'm getting the TD04 setup from Kraken but seems that's not too popular right now.

The popular ones are 2554 and 2560 on this forum but a T2 tap'd flange will support a variety of turbos.

This setup with a pimpy cast o2 housing and that nice 3" downpipe would be RAD with a 2554 on it. Monster street car.

Alright guys, to make things easier I will update the price list

I want to do the following
I'll do 6 manifolds for $290 shipped, this means 3 x 1.8 and 3 x 1.6. Tapped for T2 m10 x 1.5 or m8 x 1.25 / T3 also the same configuration

I am also doing 6 manifolds + downpipe + oil lines sets for $550 shipped, so that means 3 x1.6 and 3 x1.8. Downpipe will fit the following turbos T25 ca18det / T28 sr20det

Payment is done by Paypal and I do not accept payments sent as gift

I am not selling anything else for now until I get some feedback

Also if you guys use facebook find us at kraken mx5 manifolds

In now way I could afford to drop 7k on FM kit or similar, so decided to make my own, this was over 3 years ago and this where I am now

The downpipe for the TD04L is actually a cast elbow with vband, it will not fit any other turbo







And this is a CAT relaxing

What size is the v band? 2.5"? 3"?
