    Inlet manifold or exhuast manifold?

    Inlet manifold, there is probably no point on the standard turbo
    the exhuast manifold can be ported to help with flow

    Sorry for not making it clear. I looking for a exhaust manifold as uprated the turbo and now thinking of going for more power and going to change front half of exhaust now.
    Exhaust manifold, 3" downpipe and de-cat

    As said, Bill at Badger5 ports std K03 manifolds as they flow pretty well anyway...

    Define uprated turbo?

    A well ported stock manifold will outflow any current k03 no need for performance one. There are some available but I believe they crack pretty easily

    The more we test the more apparent uprated actuators are need on these things. I don't think your old stock actuator is going to help things. I think I mentioned in the past to you but a b5 ported manifold and an actuator will definately help.

    basically get a k03 exhuast manifold, send it to badger 5(his contact details are on this site or google him) once he has worked his magic, get your garage to fit it to your car.
    also try get an uprated actuator like beachbuggy has said. try a turbo shop
