This manifold is designed to place a bigger turbo in the same location as the stock turbo. GTB1756VK, GTB2056VK, GTB2260VK, GTD2872VRK, MTGTB1756V, MTGTB2056V, MTGTB2260V and virtually all other turbos with the same turbine inlet flange will fit this manifold.
This product is cast and designed to exceed the quality of the original OEM manifold. It has the following advantages over an aftermarket welded tubular exhaust manifold:
Smaller exhaust volume means quicker boost response. Strong Low-RPM torque is why people love driving TDIs (aside from great fuel economy, of course!)
OEM style consistency (no warping from hand-welding many pieces)
No weld pinhole leaks and cracks to worry about
New fire ring to ensure maximum exhaust seal
Lower cost without compromises
Completely designed and made in the USA.
