    I was going to suggest JBS - could be worth contacting a company caled PIPEWERX - they helped with some parts on the Redline Audi TT and can happily make bespoke items

    CTS do a nice looking topmount T3 flanged manifold that looks like a nice option...

    CTS 1.8T T3 Turbo Manifold: CTS Turbo

    You would have to import it though.

    As for downpipes, id get one custom made if i was you. be cheaper and made for your exact car.

    With the above you will have to have the turbo tip facing the drivers side as it looks like it might not fit the other way round

    Nah if definately fits. They also do a RHD downpipe which relocates the WG so that theres no clearance problems.

    which although it looks nice, is mega $$$$ so id still get a custom one made instead.

    A GT28RS is T25 isn't it?

    Also I wouldn't buy a down pipe not matched to the manifold as it might not fit - either buy as a pair for the turbo, or get one made as MUSH states.

    Just realised, its a gt28rs eliminator thats on route , oops. it turns out its from a longitudional mounted engine (A4) but it looks like if i get a high flow K03 fittiment manifold it will fit (if i clock it that is) do u recon an S3 downpipe will fit it?

    Cheers

    Does that CTS manifold fit the s3 ? Just looks like it wouldn't as it is there isn't much room for a k04 :-/
