    exhaust manifold?

    my exhast manifold has a crack and leaks a bit now. is it worth putting on an aftermarket manifold or just stick with stock? its a 1.8t quattro sport running about 210bhp and uses a k03s. i would have thought it wont be worth getting an aftermarket one unless going for much more power but anybody have some info?

    someone here got an aftermarket one for the Ko3s.
    looked good, wider runners and less restrictive around the merge collector right under the turbo inlet.
    as you are mapped already it may be worth it. unlikely to free up too much as the restriction is the turbo itself, but anything that reduces restriction of flow at the higher end is going to help.
    Don't think it was too pricey but can't remember who had it sorry

    It moves the power band so you get a better mid and top end but a little more lag bottom from what people have posted so more of a K04 upgrade I would have thought.

    for me yes, and it's exactly as the Doc says, but as i am running a hybrid it comes in quite early anyway TBH

    I have the 034 one as well.

    I would just see which you can get cheaper if your never going to change the turbo etc.
