Same here Kraken. Next time you are getting ready to open up and have the kit available for the 1.8 shoot me a PM, I am a guaranteed buy. I have the 550 put aside already.

The problem with the elbow is the positioning of the turbo, if it sits slightly different it will not fit, but yes I am thinking of doing stuff like this if people want it, we actually own a part of the foundry so doing stuff like this doesnt cost the earth which helps a lot. I do want to make a divided elbow something like fm but they are doing it already so see no point

We are willing to make parts if people want them, we are more focused on manufacturing rather than selling directly to end users, however at the moment cant do one without the other, which is a shame. Also we are not really set up to deal with a high number of clients

Unfortunately I really doubt keeping the prices so low, it will need at least $150+ to make it worthwhile, it all depends nothing is set in stone for now

Whats left is the following

2 x 1.8 T2-T3 manifolds
2 x 1.6 T2-T3 manifolds
3 x 1.6 T25/T28 kits

I wonder if this would fit the MKTurbo setup without replacing the downpipe . Turbo placement looks pretty darn similar.

No it won't. I put the turbo further forward and higher up. I am doubtful there is enough room to use my standard turbo on it, and have room to build a down pipe and clear the rear shelf.

Judging simply by the center of the manifold outlet, it looks to me like its forward enough to fit EFR. Both outlet center lines line up with the left side of cylinder 2 inlet. We can safely assume that inlet is in the same place on both header. Both outlet also looked raised vertically a similar amount. I would imagine EFR will fits as well with this header as it does with the TSE header. Downpipe inlet might need to be changed to accomodate a 3" Vband inlet but that's not a terribly hard job for an exhaust shop.

This manifold looks absolutely amazing. For anyone wondering about GT2871R fitment with it thats the turbo ill be using. Looks like there is a ton of room with the way this manifold places the turbo. Ive been out of the miata world for some time, and its nice to see good cast manifolds being made that arent BEGI or FM since those flow like poopoo pants.
