Oow im excited haha.
You'll only end up fitting it round the wrong way Dan
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.
I want both, but the dp will do for now.
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.
Even with a Pipewerx D.P. Are there any pics of the manifolds yet.
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.
Welly inbox is full mate
Just waint let that drop will ya westy, haha.
So whats happening with the 3" exhaust they are doing aswell, id like to get all 3 in one go and then fit at same time.
trying to pm welly inbox is full m8
Clear your inbox mate, put me down for a 3" dp and decat, I'll pm u my address when your inbox is empty.
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)
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,
ps anyone got a price on the Mani?
Sorry all, inbox now cleared. Resend all PMs....
(my bad, a slight logistical whoopsie....)
pictures of mani would be v.handy welly
Downpipe's seems to be on sale
on the bay.
Audi VW TT S3 Quattro GTi 3" Downpipe with 200 cell Sport Cat MK1 1.8T | eBay
Audi VW TT S3 Quattro GTi 3" De Cat Downpipe MK1 1.8T | eBay
UK Pound to South African Rand is to strong for me to go this route.......
i need a DP cos it takes alot of heat off the turbo more for reliability rather than power gains for me
I would like to buy the downpipe and decat, please message me back welly to purchase it, thanks
Yeah welly, pm back .
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....
Hi Mate, I didn't get a PM from you, please resend as my mailbox was full me thinks.
OK, can do. I will take one later on...
It's in the back of bumble at home.
am i going crazy or is this a similar manifold??? XS Power- Audi VW TT S3 Quattro GTi Stainless Race Manifold
is that the manifold or is it an improved one? and i am interested in the mani, can't pm you as my post count is too low but i've added you on Messenger. cheers
I cudnt PM you as i have not posted 15 times yet, am fairly new to the site as i only bought my s3 in february and dont no much mechanics, ive got to recon my turbo because quite abit of oil was getting into ic an am going to uprate it so wanted the pipes for it for when i do it, its abit late though because ive orderd it off ebay now and has been dispatched but never mind thats how it goes, like reading your post on your build, keep up good work to show people like me the way lol !
OK, by popular demand, here are some comparative photos...
Old vs new.
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:
Also, the flange on this new one here is perfectly flat.... another of the initial problems.
Looks like a nice bit of kit.
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?
Looks sweet but can't afford now just had a remap and coilovers
Is there a group buy on these manifolds
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.
What he said.
Hi welly could you pm me about the price of manifold as im unable to message yet due to a lack of posts thanks !
Have u got my pm welly cheers
Yes mate, replied.
Still waiting for a manifold price guys.
Quick question, ive bought this downpipe and decat and the gaskets aint supplied with them, i messaged xs power to ask if they do them and they told me there 'still working on them' , does any one know where im supposed to buy these from ?
Any 3" downpipe gasket from ebay will be fine.
ok thanks for quick reply as need to order ready for next week when i send turbo to get recond
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.
