It is not clear to me if it's still available..
And if they ship to the netherlands, also useful.

I think the answer to both is yes. They are still advertising + he shipped mine to me here in Ireland.

Finally time to install my new manifold of Artech.

Is it necessary to make cuts between the cylinder ports, as recommended to the stock GReddy manifold?

Wow that looks like a nice piece. Better than the ETD manifold everybody was buying 5 years ago.

I'm going to ask this in here as I think if you guys are looking at fabrication it's as good a place as any. What I cant understand is this : there are hundreds of used turbo manifolds out there for loads of 4 cylinder cars with T25 flanges, there must be one that would fit the MX5 Mk1 (1.8 though) with a few adjustments, maybe a few new bolt holes in the right place. Has this been asked before and looked into ? I can't find anything when searching.

Yes, there are manifold that fit 1.8 miatas. They're the ones that are MADE TO FIT THE ------- CAR.

Between port spacing, stud spacing, port size, and then where the manifold places the turbo, a manifold made for another car will not work.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I have discovered that I have a cracked manifold on my greddy kit. I contacted Artech, but they no longer make these. Is there a direct replacement for the Greddy kit somewhere?

I just bought one from CXRacing on ebay for $195 shipped (assuming you have a 1.6). The reviews are all over the place and they don't offer any warranty. I figure for that price though, it is still a 304 stainless a tube manifold, so if any of the welds crack, I can just reweld them. Definitely not the best quality out there, but will work for my purpose.


**EDIT** - clearly (by the neg cats I have received) some may think my post as an endorsement of this product. It in NO way is. I fully acknowledge this is a cheap chinese manifold, which will most likely crack. I said the reviews were all over the place, and that the company does not offer any warranty. However, for my application, which is strictly for a weekend play toy I full intend on beating the hell out of....OFF ROAD, and the fact that if the welds do fail, I have the ability to reweld them, makes this one fine with me. If you are wanting reliability, I would not suggest going this route.

Is this a direct replacement? The CXR looked like the flange was further back than the greddy. Im still using my greddy downpipe. Let me know how it fits.

I will test fit today when it shows up. It looks like I may need to extend my DP, but not sure yet. I will take some pics and post them up.....assuming I haven't been banned because people keep leaving me negative feedback for buying what I clearly said was a cheap product, lol

He was just trying to be helpful, guys. It was an informative and good-natured response to a problem someone was having. And he knows it will likely crack.

I know a tig welder ....doesn't bother me. I may have him add welds before I install. Looking at possibly ceramic coating as well. Can't be any worse than the stock greddy mani. Thanks for the input
