    run away, far away.

    Apart from it being the wrong fitment, its a poor quality unit. I have seen one in the flesh/metal and wouldn't bolt one to a car i wanted to actually use regularily

    No then lol. You have a KO4 like all the other standard S3's.
    Even if it was for a KO4 then Byzan says it all really.

    I think the general concensus is that the eBay ones are poorly made with little or no research & development and provide little or no gains.

    ...But correct me if i'm wrong!

    I bought one, and didn't even bother fitting it after looking at it. A total piece of s**t. Sent it back immediately and got a refund. Poorly made, poorly welded, poor grade stainless.

    All in all, a total four branch turd.

    hello, for what are new manifolds? it can give more power? I thought that you need manifold change when you would like do turbo upgrade and the serial manifold has bad flansch or number of bolts against new turbo. thank you for explanation

    Fitted a Ebay special to a friends pulsar before, what a load of ****e! No bolt holes lined up and we ended up having to make it fit to get him on the road again.

    Stay well away.....
