price a good reliable 1.8 log mani at 250 and I bet it would fly off the shelves faster than they could make them

even easier - they could make a knockoff of the begi s cast log like they knocked off the s4 and if it was priced under 300 I bet it would sell like hotcakes too

So if that doesn't include churbo, you're looking at manifold, downpipe, and intercooler+piping...

What does a comparable artech manifold and downpipe run?

I don't see a lot of manifolds that tilt the turbo as this one does.

I'm somewhat concerned about the material used. I don't know what thickness stainless steel is on the BEGI S4, but most custom long tube manifolds use sch40 mild steel which seems like it would put up with the vibrations from our engines a lot better.

Someone with more knowledge on the matter have any input?

The S4 thing was originally SS. About two years ago I changed it to sched 40 mild steel weld els.

4 month resurrection.

So has anyone actually tried this? Curious about what kind of life expectancy it has.

$1,388 on their website with assumedly Chinese turbo still doesn't seem outrageous.

Unless there is someone who is too embarrassed to speak up, no one here has tried it. I'm not a fan of the IC piping routing they had to do. But for the price, unknown quality and durability, I would go with the BEGI ShanghaiS starter kit then source your own lines and IC setup and be in the same price range.

I like some of CXRacings stuff very well, but I'm hoping to complete my whole setup for a little less than that price and that includes electronics.
I think most people on here are either going to piece together a kit using a known quality manifold and downpipe or overbuild a manifold themselves.

I think CXRacing would have better luck if they sold a starter kit of only the manifold downpipe and turbo. This would at least have a better possibility of getting the components into some capable home brew setups for cheap where we could see how they hold up

The CXRacing drift car at FormulaD @ Road Atlanta last weekend was pretty bad ***. Was surprised at the setups the top drift guys were running. They are serious machines. I was there pit crewing for my buddy 1uz ae86 running in the Global Time Attack. The Vibrant 1000hp s2k was pretty sick also. We used to buy aluminum piping/bends/connectors etc... from them alot. I didn't know they had grown so much. Alot of the time attack cars were using vibrant fab parts as well.

Was the CXRacing drift car a Miata?

Do it, for science. But what T3 single scroll EFR are you going to jam on it?

Don't know. I forgot that the 6758 was not available in t3. Back to the drawing board.

Now there's really no reason to use this crap with an EFR...
