No perticular manifold. Its the big port head.

AEB and its a non-dbw

You have an AEB intake manifold if its a 97

is this mani worth any gains?

It comes stock with the big port head, putting it on a small port wouldnt show any gains.

So no. But putting a big port head on would.

cool thanks for the help. When building up a 1.8t the big port head is a good idea....right? Cams tubular exhaust mani and GT turbo should makes some power. Any other idea's i like the new intake mani that was just posted looks great..

Big port has great advantages when going BT. Cams are not needed, log manifolds flow fine but equal length tubular are always better, gt2871 gt3076 gt30 gt35 gt28rs ect all good options.

that manifold will only benefit you have an A4 or Passat with a big port head...
