    Thanks

    Mainly because, as far as I know, there is no alternative.

    Why you wanting to change?

    Regal Autosport do a billet inlet manny for the 2.0 TFSi, but it costs £1,700. I had one of their performance inlet manifolds for my Astra VXR, but it only cost around £700. :wub: x

    A few of us running big turbos and a lot of boost are using either the HPA or the Sorenson(which is the one on the link already given).

    They are all gobsmackingly expensive and probably only of use on engines such as those and if you are running WMI and extra injectors.

    If he's really dead set on an uprated manifold,there are only a couple to choose from as I've said......the HPA,and the Sorenson(which is actually made in the USA by HEP,and imported by Sorenson),but again,both will cost around £1600 up.
    If he's building an engine(i.e.a full build inc big turbo and WMI),then it would be worthwhile,but otherwise,it's debatable,as several of us have run BT kits without adding an intake manifold.
