Default Miata KuStOm Toobular 1.8 ultra rare manifold

This thing served me well over the 2 days I used it and all the hard work has already been done on it. This is great for low boost applications because of all the cracks and warped flange, and since it's stainless steel and tubular you know how ------- awesome it is. I'm looking for an address to ship it to, and I'd be willing to pay up to $15 for one although I'm def open to offers... Please no high balling though

Onto the mani:
I've actually precracked and prewarped it for you so you don't have to go through the trouble yourself!



Custom crack #1

#2

#3

#4/5

You can see light through 4/5 here


Again, with this mani you can't run very high [email protected]@st due to all the custom airflow but hey its Stainless Steel so that makes up for it.

Also open to trades for a hardtop, 6ul's but 15x9 only, brand new hoosiers, and possibly others

Those relief cuts look like that new-school wastegate tech...Self-Actuating, Continuously Variable-Gate, or whatever its called.

Proven 100% efficient, as boost rises, so does pressure release...genius!

So I DONT need a wastegate if I run this manifold?

Can I bondo in the cracks? If yes pay me $10 and it's a deal.

Why can't the china ******* just use regular god damn steel tubing instead of this garbage stainless crap and build a semi-quality manifold? Shouldn't it cost less to use shitty mild steel than shitty stainless?

We need to keep this thread handy when the next noob asks if they are decent.

I'd still like to see if I could get one to hold together with my awesome welding skilz. I'd pay shipping to get this POS.

stein you will probably end up spending as much metal wire for the welding as there is on the manifold.

No, you dont need a wastegate, the manifold is as Joethezoe said: Self-Actuating, Continuously Variable-Gated. For higher boost run more gaskets (less airflow) and less boost run fewer. I recommend no gaskets for maximum wastegate efficiency.

I don't know about bondo but I hear ceramic coatings work great

Awesome! I hear those pre-applied cracks are great for controlling boost creep.
