Sorry to keep changing my mind about this folks, but I've decided against
the Quantum manifold for my TD. Thanks to all those who offered one! My
1. Height of turbo from ground - I understand the turbo would be much
lower, which is an issue for me, as I often cross deep water, sometimes
18" or more.
2. Apparently the turbo inlet still interferes with the mount, hence the Euro
intake hose which works around this but restricts flow. Also, this manifold
is said not to flow as well.
3. Lowering turbo also complicates exhaust options, with less room to work
in for pipes.
I understand from a post by Mark Drillock some time ago that the later AAZ
turbo & manifold will clear the mount. This is the KKK turbo with external
wastegate rod. I don't know if this turbo & exhaust manifold can be used
with my Jetta TD intake. So if anyone has a turbo & manifolds for sale
fitting this description, please contact me.
If I can't locate something within my time and budget, then I'll try to modify
my mount - Andrew has sent me some good pics of his fairly simple and
