Default For sale 99-2000 Exhaust Manifold and Downpipe.

Up for sale is the 99-2000 Exhaust Manifold and Downpipe with 46,000 miles on them. As most enthusiasts know, the 99-2000 Exhaust Manifold is a superior upgrade to the cheap tubular exhaust installed on 2001-2005 Miatas.

Aside from being sturdier, the cast iron manifold provides even better flow rates and resist deterioration. It only makes since why Mazda would use the cast iron manifolds on Miatas for only two years; they are simply too expensive to manufacture.

Asking 50 dollars plus shipping for exhaust manifold and downpipe...

Actually, the 01+ is the well known superior upgrade known by most enthusiast. You've got it backwards.

Don't listen to PatsMX5...

He is just shitting on my thread because he wants my cast iron manifold, but he can't afford it.

I mean, why do you think that Mazda would only use their superior cast iron manifold for two years? It is only logical that price control is the no.1... It was simply too expensive to fabricate...

um.... no

you got it wrong like pat says. 2001+ design is tubular, which is better in flow and performance rather than a cast iron manifold, not to mention a great deal lighter.

Dude, you said the 99' was a "superior upgrade to the cheap tubular exhaust installed on 2001-2005 Miatas". Well, that's Bullshit and you know it. You wanna sell your ****, I don't care. But don't make false claims. I find it funny you find all those threads "irrelevant" though...

Hahaha, I know I just did it for ***** and kicks. I got a OBX 4-2-1 Header for my 99 10th Anniversary. I just finished taking that iron manifold off and it weighs a damn ton. Naw, actually all in all, I weighed the manifold and downpipe and it weighs about 30 pounds. I betcha this 4-2-1 header weighs about 17 pounds.

Nah but my price is 50 dollars plus shipping. Of course i'll take offers. It does have a nice low mileage downpipe you know...

Everything Cody posted was dripping in sarcasm. He wasn't serious about any of it.

cheap tubular manifold
cast iron being expensive to manufacture

come on

Good luck on the sell.

Edit: He beat me to it.

Yeah I was waiting to get some laughs on it. Especially when I said the cast iron units offers superior flowrates to the tubular exhaust...

It's obvious sarcasm, but when you are doing it to sell something it is totally inappropriate.
