My evaluation of the manifold is that the inlets are slightly restricted, 
the mid section (or the runners to the collector) aren't bad, but the 
outlet collector is very restricted.   Particularly if the pulses do not 
arrive at teh collector in sequence.   If they arrive in groups (as I 
suspect they do from a rudimentary calculation) then that collector will 
be the greatest restriction in the whol exhaust system IMHO.

Yeah, Audi obviously tried to do something to improve on thebasic log 
manifold ide, but I'm not so sure they were successful.   Unfortunately I 
don't have any way to test my theory properly at this point.

Wel, as you know, that's already addressed in my car, so that is why I'm 
going after the EM next.

That is addressed also...

and expensive.   I'm trying to figure out a way to do it though.   I 
_may_ relocate the turbo to make the equal length manifold a little 
cheaper to build.
