Hey could I just buy this instead of waiting or searching for a stock speed6 manifold? would it work on a 6i then purchase a t3/t4 turbo and piece it together like you M6racer?

http://www.streetunit.com/MAZDASPEED_Turbo..._p/dnmssstm.htm[/b]

should work because the msp have 10 holes on their exhaust manifold were as our 6i's have 7. so 7 out of the 10 will line up just use a 6i exhaust manifold gasket to cover the 3 empty holes and should be good to go, and thats a nice manifold too.

hey sorry bout taking your thread here m6racer :nana: but thanks guys for the quick reply on my question! think imma buy the aftermarket one on streetunit and piece my turbo together....parts should come quick provided I have the funds I know it will cost way more but least it will be a lil quicker to put it all down in the 6...Time over money any day...

the haltech isnt hooked up yet but i was able to get the base map for the hiboost turbo kit. so i plan on using the base map for my haltech and fine tune from there. a local shop wants $200 to wire up the haltech. my build as of right now stands at $3531.78 so i should be able to get the whole thing done for around 4k

looks good man! nice to see your this far along.

one thing i would change is the intercooler piping visable from the front. looks out of place. id paint the piping there black so it was not as noticeable. and just leave the intercooler to bling.
