Default Want to borrow: GReddy Manifold

*Not sure if this is the correct forum, sorry mods*

I would like to borrow someone's Greddy Manifold to measure. I only need it for a day. Hopefully someone local as new manifolds list for $300; shipping 2 ways across the country plus cost of materials may not be worth making one from scratch.

Anyone close to central NJ and have a manifold collecting dust? I know it's a stretch...

Thanks,

Tim

you should be able to ship it in a usps flat rate box. that would make shipping both ways <$20.

Is this for your new system or are you thinking of making an alternative manifold?

Tim,

Since mine is sitting off my car right now (and will be for a bit), you are welcome to pick it up any day. Just let me know.

Tom

I'll be picking up stripe's GT2554R tomorrow. I'm considering reselling it with a custom smoother manifold and my old RM downpipe (with GT25 flange) and associated fittings/heat shield together.

Or I'll sell it with a new GReddy manifold. I hear they are less money now and you don't need a core anymore.

Or I'll use the GT2554 myself and try to sell the downpipe and other stuff seperately. Dunno yet.

I want to have the GReddy manifold dimensions just in case though.

Probably, once I figure out what I want to replace them with and if it's worth it. The car is plenty fast and extremely driveable but I know 240rwhp isn't where I want to be.

hmm could you work the mani for a 1.8 if so what price. our 96 could use some boost. if it is cheap enough I could confirm a buy on it.

Tim,

If you want to wait until August I can bring it at your door. i was going to pay you a visit anyway when i move to NJ. i have a brand new one (part of a new kit). I also want to look at your GT2554R setup because I might want to do the same on another car.

You should offer a less costly replacement mani for those with cracked greddys. Might sell a few if you advertised though, kinda like ETD, just not so much bank. Not sure what your price margin would be though.

A 1.8 manifold that places the turbo where the GReddy kit does? Hmmm. I probably could but I think the turbo placement is bad on the GReddy manifold. If you have a 1.8 and want to build your own kit you should get a manifold that has the turbo lower, like every other manifold out there.

Thanks for the offer! I am picking up a manifold this afternoon from BRGRacer (thanks tom!) Of course please do visit when you move, it'd be nice to have more turbo miatas in the area.

That's part of the plan, that is if it's worth the time/money like you said. I know the ETD replacement manifold is around $400? and I'd try to do more of a tubular style instead of a large log like the greddy. That is if there's room for smoother pipes under the greddy manifold without crashing into the power steering, etc, I forget what's under there.

OK. It won't be soon though. I still have to figure out what I want to do, then build it. And probably what I want to do will take a while to build.

And it won't be inexpensive. I'd like to clean it up and mount it on a spare head/intake I have in storage. I bet the wife would love that in the living room
