It will be interesting to see what Craig comes up with, but at the moment you have basically two choices. One is call call Greddy's HQ in Irvine, CA and order a replacement from them. The other is here: http://m-tuned.com/miata1.html While I don't imagine the M-Tuned manifold will yield signifigantly improved performance, it may very well be more reliable.

While the turbo is out, upgrade the downpipe. Your options, at the moment, are also two. First, there's a user on this forum called TurboTony. He's not very active these days, but every now and then someone manages to buy a pipe from him. Option two is the full-of-awesomeness pipe that Bell just re-introduced: http://www.bellengineering.net/artic...0080d98740e810

No cracks in mine. My biggest complaint is the tiny DP and the placement is rough on the brake stuff. Moreover, I autocross and the turbo lag sucks.

However, I'd be VERY interested in a manifold that would move the turbo much farther towards the front of the engine with a reasonably sized DP that cost less than a BEGI downpipe for the Greddy kit alone.

Not that I want to take anything away from Corky et al, but if you want to sell something that people will buy, you have to consider this price point, with Corky's quality, costomer service and the chance to consult with Corky himself... it may make a rough row to hoe.

edit for grammar
