    Yup I want a manifold................
    Also how is the manifold going to affect the position of the turbo. Will you have to modify aftermarket downpipes to fit etc.

    Everything should fit like a glove Dave. A lot of time (as we all know) has gone into this kit so it should just be plug and play.

    OK people - prices are as follows:

    Decat 3" K04 Downpipe will be £300 plus £10 delivery
    200 Cell Cat 3" downpipe £400 plus £10 delivery.

    Price for manifolds can be arranged, PM me...

    Everyone who actually wants one of these, PM me with Name, Address, and downpipe type I can get get an idea of interest.

    There are only 8 decat pipes, so people who want decats are first come first served.

    Hi all,

    am new here so take it easy on me lol, total VAG noob. picked my new car up last sunday it has the following done:

    3" (i think could be 2.5 but not 100% sure will have to get it on a ramp to check) Turbo Back powerflow exhaust system (decat)
    Dump Valve (not sure on the make but it has a screw top to it to adjust sound)
    SFS Coolent Hoses
    SFS Intake Silicone hose with open air filter (want to change this to a BMC CDA or similar)
    Remap (Custom)

    hasn't been put on an RR but prev owners suggested 280bhp but will have to take that with a pinch of salt. but i am looking at a FMIC and with this Manifold what is the potential on standard turbo but with good reliability,

    thanks Jords :)

    ps anyone got a price on the Mani?

    i need a DP cos it takes alot of heat off the turbo more for reliability rather than power gains for me

    Hi people, sorry for the delays, every one who PM'd me should now have a reply.

    If you enquired about a manifold, I don't have prices as yet. I will update as soon as I can.

    People who wanted downpipes only should now have a code for the forum discount in their PMs.

    Any questions, let me know.

    Forum discount won't last forever guys....

    OK, by popular demand, here are some comparative photos...

    [​IMG]

    Old vs new.

    Old:

    New:

    [​IMG]

    Basically, the modification here has been the runner on cyl 4. It now runs at the same pitch as cyl 3.

    Before, cyl 4's runner simply wouldn't pass the head, and this had to be done to allow it to:

    [​IMG]

    Also, the flange on this new one here is perfectly flat.... another of the initial problems.

    Will the 3" dp fit straight onto a cat back milltek?
    Or would I need to do some chopping ?
    Also, I've had problems in the past with a car with a sports cat thy would throw up a error code relating to lambda probes. Will the 3" dp with sports cat be ok engine management wise?
    Cheers guys

    The mani hasn't been priced yet but if you PM Welly he will give you a discount code for you to use when you order directly from XS.

    Nobody has tried their latest sports cat so lambda errors are unknown as of yet.

    Do you guys have any idea on XS Power manifolds cracking tendency on colder climates as i live in Finland? My old ported manifold is leaking and i am in desperate need of new one. I don`t want to install another stock one..

    Is there reliable information on when this manifold really becomes available? I understood that JBS one will still take some time?

    Hope you understood, my english is far from perfect as i am finnish.
