Default JGS manifold and stock WRX turbo

have a pre-assembled JGS "stage 2" manifold kit for a 1.6 sitting here, without the turbo flange welded on. It's a blank log right now, with a separate radius plate so you could have whatever turbo flange you want welded onto it. I also have a flange for a wrx td04 that i was going to have welded on to this, that you could have as well.

i've also got a td04 from a stock wrx, with about 60k miles on it. turbo's in great shape, and has lines with it.

decided to hold off on boosting until i buy a house, and am sick of this stuff collecting dust and not making someone go fast.

250 shipped for the manifold kit and 100 shipped for the turbo sound fair?

feel free to PM or email.

Is the wrx tdo4 a common turbo application for the miata? I am starting my first DIY project?

it's not a common turbo application due to it's odd flanges...however since you alreayd have a bulk of the work done it would be too hard to fab the rest...

the turbo itself should prove a great little turbo for the 1.6

I used the WRX turbo on my 1.6. It worked really well.

I am now using it on my 1.8 and it works great there too.

If I could just move to a place that has paved roads and is connected to the rest of the world by something other than rail then all would be good.

And STI turbos (VF-39s) go for around 400 used and are 16Gish in output if whoever buys this wants to upgrade in the future.

I don't know the specs of the turbo. Google it, there is lots of info out there in the Subie boards.

I used an ETD Shorty manifold which I had them build with the WRX flange.

I would have bought this manifold if it only were for a 1.8! Where did you purchase the WRX flange? I actually want to do this setup, but obviously for my 1.8
