Wifey is doing everything to talk me out of it. I'll let you know for sure. Chances are it will be gone by the time I'll have the money for it. Just a really good deal for it.

1500 160k miles on it bone stock. I did do some measuring today and everything looked good. I also checked my charge piping setup and that intake you have is gonna fit perfectly with what I have.

I really want to have both turbo cars but too much right now. I eventually want to build another eclipse. I had one when I was in the marines. Bought it stock and put a lot of work into it. Then lost control and put into a wall at 70.

yeah, ive had a couple other turbo cars too. Its hard to put money into my DD when I can buy/build a turbo honda or DSM for the price of the FSWERKS kit.

How much would you want for your manifold+turbo+o2 tube? Are there any pictures floating around of the f2 tubular manifold "installed"?

Not installed. Weather has been pretty bad where I'm at. I'll see what I can do for you later this week. And going a different route on the downpipe. Gonna do a v band flange so I can adjust as needed depending on which way I face the turbo. See talking about this makes me want to finish the build. Not one to quit something once I get started.

yeah you should finish it. I'm really tempted on pulling the trigger on the MS3 used turbo+downpipe. Worst case, I can just sell it for what I bought it for and just lose out on shipping. I really wished some companies would just sell a manifold_downpipe combo. There's a dozen places that do that for hondas. I bought a tubular log+3" downpipe for my crx for like $550 brand new.

That is true. When I looked at the manifold it just looked like it has a lot more bolt holes but not really sure if that would hurt anything. You should still have a good seal. And the turbo and downpipe should work fine.
