I'll dig up the old thread when I have a moment.

Its nothing new. At all. Same cookie cutter manifold most here run. In fact, its almost identical to the weld el mani I built back in 2008.

Cool story bro.

Lol oh wait. Maybe i can.
I can make no claims to what improvements power wise the new system will make. I did get the picture from ahouterm and can confirm that it is what i saw at the shop in April. When I was there they had no gotten any of the cars that had the new manifold on a dyno yet. The one he is getting will be stainless, but I know Corky wants to go to a cast manifold with the same design. We talked about the problems he was having with designing how it would be cast and all.

The biggest changes were the new manifold and going to an external wastegate. I am doubtful of 10% power increase over their old S4, but might buy it over their normal cast manifold. The one thing I liked about the design was how easy it was to actually install the turbo on the manifold.

It actually took me about 20 minutes or something to type up the post. I was distracted by coworkers, getting real work done, and eating lunch.

At this moment I'm really curious how my car will react with the current ITB setup and turbo. Couldn't find much on the web about ITB+turbo on a miata.

The sad thing is how long they have used a customer's car to build this. Dropped off in November and still doesn't have it... http://houstonmiataclub.com/index.php?topic=3415.0

Yep, exactly. Which I copied too in my 1st build.

I guess I had a ALPHA-OMEGA kit on my '00 and didn't even know it

Too bad I didn't have any GTR's or Lambo's to smoke.

BEGi revolutionized turbo Miatas by making a manifold that has been around for a decade.

I guess thats where the name comes from. Getting biblical up in this bitch. Ancient manifold rises from the dead to heal our sins.

That is about par for the course there. Heck, There was certain NC that lived there for over a year(iirc) for development of a kit. Owner got tired of waiting and said give it back.

At least this is better than being told I HAVE to use the 1.6L downpipe because my car is a 90. Nevermind that 95 1.8L motor I put in. That doesn't matter, your car should use the 1.6 parts because that is what it is.

Or just asking how the intercooler pipes were routed and told they can't tell me that. I'd just have to order the parts and see.

This is the truth.

While they certainly have earned a bit of a reputation for tardiness, it warrants remembering that Bell was really the first company to produce a high-quality, well-engineered turbo system for the Miata, and is easily the longest-lasting name in the business. Until about 5 years ago, even the Flyin' Miata turbo system was a re-branded Bell package (FM was the authorized exclusive distributor for Bell at the time.)

Well they were partially right about the downpipe. The 1.8 and 1.6 CATs are different and have different angled flanges. So if you were still using the 1.6 CAT you would need a 1.6 downpipe even if you have a 1.8 motor in the car. The section behind the CAT is the same 90-97 though.

They were more than partially right. You still want the 90-93 DP in order to mate your cat.

The physical location of the turbo stays in the same place, regardless of a 1.6L or 1.8L. If you had a 94+ cat, then that would have been a different story. But I doubt that's the case and I would lol if I had known all this, knew you in real life, and found out your DP didn't fit after you "schooled" them.


Sidenote: FM makes a 1.6L to 1.8L DP. Just a different flange on the end to mate the cat.

Who the **** puts a turbo on their car then leaves the stock 1.6 cat there?



Regardless, the **** with the intercooler piping question is hilarious. That's when you follow up with "Thanks for the lack of information, I'll be giving a different vendor my money."

Something tells me that if Corkey Canned Steph and hired someone else a lot of these issues would go away.
