    Might get a better response if you ask a mod to move this to the correct car section.

    I assume its a A3 8L?

    its not a case of them fixing them.............. their quality is erratic..

    manifold lottery applies..

    also some which are'nt even fully welded in the collector area being sent out to customers.. FFS... beggars belief but saldy true.
    Quality Control and relentless are'nt two words which should go together..

    Who actually fitted it for you?

    I would have expected the mechanic who fitted it would have told you if there were any fitting issues with the ports not matching up and if it needed opening up more for it to flow correctly.

    Hi,
    i fitted it myself and r-tech are just mapping it for me,
    When fitting i had no problems as such. bit of a tight fit but went on ok, and when fitting i never checked that the ports lined up as i wasnt aware of the problem at the time, I.E Before and after i purchased, i did alot of research before purchasing and was under the impression the v3's were pretty sound lol.
    Still got fingers crossed

    Fair enough....I mean I don't own a manifold as yet as I've been holding out for a consistent 'correct' fitment and quality product to be produced from somewhere for a reasonable price *cough* B5.

    Anyway - from the small amount of research I've done on the relentless manifolds and versions, I have never actually seen anyone praise the manifold for an easy fitment...great quality....and no issues etc. That's for all versions of the manifold as well...

    So if you have literally taken it out of the box and not checked if it all lines up and bolted it on- my fingers are crossed for you also you could have had a good one though....however it's a manifold lottery with relentless :D

    Have you been speaking to relentless directly asking them about the V3 or something?....It's just that I don't know of anyone who would say the V3 hasn't got/has any issues. Even Sam who sells them would possibly tell you to get it checked out before bolting it on. There is a reason it's that cheap compared to everything else on the market...

    Get yourself signed up to the VAG talk Facebook page and keep your eye on this section of the forum in the future dude + let us know how you get on....IF there are any issues that Nicki reports, I'm sure some helpful chaps on here can guide you as to what to do and what needs to be done.
