there are usual some cheap mantzel copies on ebay, However if you can find one a second hand lexmaul would be more suited to your budget as you can get away with out a remap

maybe a touch more, by using a 1600 bottom end and a 1400 head you build an x16xel engine

Will acceleration be affected? will it be slower due to high spec bottom end?

What X16XEL is identical to an X16XE but with a lengthened inlet tract. X14XE and X16XE share these common parts...

yes but also x14xe and x16xel share the same head, x16xe head is a different part, also x16xel and x14xe have a different exhaust cam, whereas the x16xe has identical inlet and exhaust cams

definately worth investing in an inlet manifold...i wouldn't see any problem with those ones on ebay for 100! after all if you'd seen what a proper one looks like anyway its just a hollow box.
