Have you looked at the stock manifold on other 5-cyl? How about the normally
aspirated 20v? The '91 200q20v, or the urS4/S6 (same manifold), or the
reworked RS2 manifold? They might give you some guidance, as it's likely
they've been run through a few flow benches. Plenty of room on those cars
for different setups on the exhaust manifold...
I could shoot some pictures off a loose urS4 exhaust manifold if that would
help...uses the same turbo as your 200, so you'd think the principals used in
design would be usefull...
