Hey guys,

I'm looking to purchase my manifold shortly, and deciding which application would best "Fit" the B5.

I have a connection for good prices on a Top mount T3 Manifold, or standard side mounted T3. Off the bat, the top mount is desired for "bragging" rights. But With the way the turbo needs to be clocked so the Outlet is downward, I'm concerned clearance would be a factor. With the Standard T3 I'm not worried about that clearance, but I'm worried about frame rail clearance.

Any input? Via personal experience? [wrench]

full race tubular. you wont regret it

Agreed. Full race is the way to go if you don't get a custom one made.

full race will get you bragging rights. it also comes with a price. if you can find someone to work with, you could get a custom manifold for the same or better price. the pices should cost $500. its the welding that adds up

i also like the agtronics manifold, which i think is "prettier" than the full race, but again it aint cheap

Tubular ftw.

I wish I could've afforded a tubular v-banded manifold. So much easier and better looking.

There's a tubular manifold for sale in the classifieds, T3 flange. Has a downpipe too. Shorter runners than the Full Race. If it was a v-band I would have bought it.

I wish I knew how to fabricate like that. Excellent work.
