    That fixing on the block serves no purpose dude... no 1.8t I have worked on (Ibiza's, A3, S3, Leons, Polo's etc... ) use this for anything... if this 'boss' is the thing stopping you fitting the turbo then get the grinder out... be more reliable than using long studs that could stretch and two gaskets...

    No idea on the availability of longer studs... guess they are available but you can't just use any old threaded bar else they will stretch from the heat and the manifold will come loose

    The three where the middle one is already ground lower the the outside two? I suspect these would be ok the remove tbh but without looking on an actual block I wouldn't want to commit...

    There are a couple of scrap blocks at Bills but I am not there until next weekend so won't get a look until then...

    Looking at the block I am using for my stroker build there are more of those jobbers on the side... may just be a visual indicator of some description rather than anything else so could be safe to remove...

    I suspect that they are from casting the block if they are in other places aswell then I might try and take a small amount out off them maybe sand the edge of the snail on the turbo aswell thanks for the help
