    I received 1 exchange inlet manifold from PMG Technik in Poland.
    The engineering looks good and it's nice & clean inside, not full of thick tar like mine.
    The butterflies are machined aluminium to replace the VAG plastic parts.
    Nicely anodised in red, shame they won't be seen!
    BUT
    they are thicker at the spindle. The plastic ones are 5.5 at the thickest part, these are 6mm.
    I have no idea how much 1/2mm will affect air flow & output. probably not much.
    Anyone?

    Will make absolutely no difference whatsoever. Enjoy knowing the inside of your intakes are glistening and shiney!

    Like the insides of a treacle mine.
