Default Aftermarket intake manifolds?

Does anyone know of a company that makes an aftermarket intake manifold for the 99 and up miatas? Did some searching and coulden't come up with anything. Help?

No. If you're making enough power to warrant one, you'll find someone to make one for you.

Wobbly power sucks.

There are people adapting Honda B16/B18 manifolds (specially the cool Type R manifold) to fit the Miata head.

new manifolds aren't hard to make if you can weld. The BEGI manifold will give you more top end power but reduce you low end torque and i like torque, so i went with runners. I made this manifold for my 1.6 for under $150. I am going to use it with a supercharger setup using a larger throttle body. Yes the stock manifold we welded the runners to are port matched to my P&P head.

Phone pics.. so they kinda suck.

Its not custom, but i believe the Jdm 01+ intake manifold warrants some power. I know miataroadster.com selling them for 5 bills, or you could search ebay.

Only if you have a NB/NB head.

If you're not boosted, changing IMs will only net you ricer points at car shows.

Isn't the JDM intake manifold (square top) good for about 5-10 horses?
So I would say that serves as more than just points at a car show.

It is a square top. Emilo is using one on a motor he has. I was reading up on a thread here. Its true its only bolt on for NB heads, but it is worth more power, not just rice. FYI miataroadster sells a adapter plate to make the jdm Intake fit on NA's. You just got cut and weld it on.... Easy right...

BEGI had one in "final testing", but then it just dissapeared from their web site, it was a more middle of the road manifold than the one they are selling. I'm curious to know what happened to it.

I believe they were not happy with the results and went back to the drawing board.

What bewilders me is how can itb setups gain power on NA builds, but none of these manifolds can gain power like itbs can in naturally aspirated situations? I would imagine a straight runner manifold with ~8.5" long runners, ~45mm in diameter, with a decent sized plenum, and with a larger throttle body could gain some power given the intake track wasn't restrictive. Perhaps something like an Arc chamber would be beneficial for NA power once the manifold/throttle could flow more air.
