    Since we are un the bay, anyone have real experience with the Skunk2 intake mani from TDR? Interested to know if it's a better choice than the flat top, as they both sell for appx the same cash.

    I could have swore I saw a thread where someone dyno'd them both back to back and the Skunk2 made more power. I would be very surprised if the Skunk2 didn't make more power than any other ots option for the Miata. Skunk2 has been making quality intake manifolds for awhile. Will try to locate said thread.

    There's been a lot of complaints I've seen on the Skunk2 particularly with some bolts cracking their mounting holes, But I can't say that I have really read into it. The only other thing is if you had an NA not an NB then you also have to factor in the cost of an NB startermotor due to size restricitons, and the NA Starter Feed wire rubbing and making fires...

    Detailed info of casting/manufacturing and installation/fitment issues of the Skunk2 intake. As well as N/A testing compared to a JDM flat top intake on a high HP N/A engine.

    Yes it is. I also have an ARC titanium rear underbracing similar to the beatrush.
