    Inlet manifold.

    Evening gents.

    Just wondering what options there are for a inlet manifold.

    I bought a spare s3 inlet manifold and have gasket matched it but tbh it seems pointless in fitting it, its hardly going to offer much if any difference.
    I know the obviuos one is the SEM but im not willing to splash that much out, well at least not at this stage.

    Was thinking about one of these but with largeport runners and running a transition gasket to allow fitment to my smallport head:
    OBX INTAKE RACE MANIFOLD VW BETTLE GOLF GTI JETTA 1.8T | eBay

    I know its a copy of the RMR one but looks identical to this one a previous memember had fitted:
    RMR Intake Manifold fitted ..

    So what you guys think?

    Difficult one... some report bad qaulity but tbh theres is not much to go wrong on them... the RMR was never the best performer tbh but obviously gonna be better than the std one... what it will give on a fairly std tune I don't know...

    Providing it is made a little better than the XS Power mani's then it stands a chance I guess...
