Hey lads,

So the manifold on my GTI is blown and the car sounds like a tractor.

My options are to bring it to a specialist exhaust garage that will take off the existing manifold and fix it up (welding i presume?) and fit it back on for about €100

or should I order one of these instead?

Would I see any power gains?

car is already remapped to 195bhp

I got one of those. Couldn't fit the turbo to the flange. No room to fit a bolt through the hole and not even enough room for a nut to turn!
Material and welds looked ok though,needed a little cleaning inside.
Don't buy one. Buy a jabba if you insist but most people say there's not much need
