    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Are these the copper spacers I've heard about to aid clearance issues with certain parts? I'd bolt it all up on the bench very carefully gaz and see what does and does not clear

    You can't get one of these for the k03s, the stock one flows pretty well anyway.

    The downpipe is epic though, and I know someone *cough cough* who is selling one.

    They are a **** solution to a problem that shouldn't exist... as mentioned by Bill... dry build off the car first... see what clearences are and where adjustments need to be made... if nothing fits properly then sling it back...

    the manifold should fit to the head using a std OEM gasket and clear everything like the charge pipe fittings etc and you should be able to bolt on the turbo with a std OEM gasket and be able to fit the DP on again with an std OEM gasket..

    Do not use the copper ones or the silvery ones that were supplied as you will end up not having a good day...

    How's it going ? I've just received the DP and cat, don't fancy my chances at removing the head to put the manifold on.
