Step1: fill out signature.
Step2: fill out location in profile.
Step3: go to Meet&Greet forum and perform proper NOOB introduction.
Step4: if you have been looking on eBay, you fail.
Step5: any of the half-dozen or so primary Miata turbo manifold suppliers will make any of their products with any flange you desire. HINT**HINT** one of the guys on here who shall remain nameless but his initials are TurboTim might be somebody you wanted to PM about a T3 flanged manifold.

Any particular reason you need a T3 flange? What turbo are you planning on running? Tell us about your setup.

I'll sell you my FM cast manifold. It'll work for a t3. You just need to buy a t25 to t3 adapter, and mount it backwards.

Junk in what way? Junk as in they fail, or junk as in they make less power (potentially) than a properly designed tube manifold?

From what I understand:

crappy ebay manifold <<<<<<<<<<<<<(times a bajillion) BEGI/FM cast manifold < BEGI S4 < Absurdflow

Am I about right guys?

Really? I had no idea, better tell the thousands of people that run them for years that they are junk.

Oh ****, mine has nearly 100k miles on it! I better get rid of it soon before it stops working because it's junk.

You are seriously misinformed if you think cast manifolds are junk in general.

Also, that IC is going to be damn tough to route piping for. You're going to be limited to an over-the-rad setup... and I think the inlet/outlets are too close together for the cutouts in the upper radiator support.

If only I didn't have this junk cast manifold, I could make enough power to have fun.

OMG I can't believe FM and BEGi have been flooding the market with junk cast manifolds for over 10 years now...

1. Cast manifolds aren't "junk". They will more than max out the potential of the stock engine.
2. Never ever ever EVER build a kit around a part that you already have.
3. What turbo is it? Don't say "r33 skyline" turbo, tell us what it is. We aren't going to look it up for you.
4. You do not need to waste that much on an intercooler. Get an ebay one like 99% of us are running.

Despite only having two posts, I have a sinking feeling that we have another "I AM JACK'S NA" here.

I know jugdrift in person, his communication skills are obviously a lil lacking, as are mine.
What he wants to do is turbo his 1999 miata. He purchased a nissan turbo off a r33 like he said, his power goal for that turbo is about 265whp, which it should make at about 14 psi. He has already contacted DIY auto tune under my recommendation. His goal is to build a turbo kit that can support 400whp, when his tax return comes around next year the motor will be getting a build. I informed him that cast and log manifolds are probably not adequate for his future goals. Basically he is trying to turbo his car, and i am trying to encourage him to avoid parts that wont hold up or remain efficient int he long run.
What he needs is a custom t3 tubular manifold or something like an Absurdflow.

Talk to Abe at Artech about having a manifold and downpipe made. Just know that it will probably be a while before it is done. Abe generally stays pretty busy.

Good advice, but why didn't you go with Abe for your manifold?
