    I have just cleaned and de-gunked my 2.5 Tdi AFB engine inlet manifolds and EGR valve, so I have a list of the Audi part numbers of the gaskets needed for the job :-

    059133074B x1
    059131797A x1
    046131547 x2
    059129717G x2
    059133073B x2

    This will do both inlet manifolds to head, egr pipe/valve, the egr 'flapper valve' to the inlet cross pipe and the two manifold to inlet cross pipe gaskets
    I got them from Audi, and they were only a couple of pounds each.
    As mentioned in other threads, it was not a difficult job, and should be worthwhile on most cars.

    Just out of interest how did you clean them. I heard shot blasting is the only sure way.

    Mr Muscle for a while, wash, rinse and repeat, then as Adamss24 said, kerosene and a lighter!

    There are people that give out dire warnings of Mr Muscle eating the aluminium, but so long as you don't leave it for days, it'll be fine.

    You could do it an a day easily enough, but as always, I'd do it Saturday so when the inevitable unforeseen grief occurs, you have a day to deal with it!
