Nah, I have a BP flange, but... is this looks like it might be the correct flange?

Mazda Speed Header/Manifold Flange - MAZDASPEEDHF - BMC Racing Products



That's 1/2" mild, but they also work in 304SS (IIRC). Shoot them an email and request it in SS, expect to pay around $90-100 based on their Honda SS offerings. If they don't have it on the site, call and ask as they have code for tons of stuff that they don't list. I would imagine the MZR is in there somewhere.

Hehe, someone over there noticed Joe's "DDoS" comment. It raised a few eyebrows. The m.netters are on the verge of concluding that any criticism of the TDR setup was just jackassery on the part of mt.netters.

anyone wanna try the steed speed topmount? all that needs to change imo is the angle of the flange to point away from the head? If it fits, then it will fit the RHD cars too imo???

Otherwise a rotrex setup would be nice too.

That TDR manifold looks like ***, and cheater bends FTL..

Do it I've previously asked about tilting the flange the other way for us NC guys... kinda fell on deaf ears... :( I'm pretty sure it would work, and would provide a very nice STRONG manifold.

Otherwise i may buy a cnc and machine my own brackets for a rotrex these seem easy to fit, I just don't know why it hasn't been done...

Ill have turbo'd an NC within a couple months but it would be nice to have an off the shelf manifold.

TDR Releases the TDR2 Turbo Kit RHD & LHD - MX-5 Miata Forum

TDR just released photos and details of its second iteration of the turbo kit for the NC. I am not gonna lie, it looks like the construction quality went up leaps and bounds and I am kind of curious what kind of numbers it will put down.

Log manifolds are the best.

It definitely looks to be much higher quality. Still retarded.

Well, in his defense he did answer just about every problem brought up in the original post (well he replaced a poor-flowing tubular mani with a poor-flowing log). Unless they tack-welded the v-band clamp on


Still, no EFR no care. In for Wittyworks version.

That downpipe in the first kit definitely leaks exhaust.

So let me get this straight: he uses v-bands and an EWG then pairs them to a log?

OH COME ON!!!!!!!!!!1111111



Seriously?

In the first iteration the #1 and #4 runners weren't pointing towards each other enough.

I do not get it? What is wrong with v-band on a log?

NCs don't have room for a header. A log (and a very short one at that) is the only solution.

Thats a **** poor excuse for not building a high flowing but complicated manifold.
