    Has anyone got a flow master intake, exhaust manifold or the flowtec inlet manifold. Also if you have the flowmaster intake would it b alot better over the 1.9cdti or 2.2 set up???

    The 1.9cdti and 2.2 airboxes aren't very restrictive - they've been tested. The flowmaster has a much smaller filter (generally in cars changing the filter makes little to no difference to the performance as they have such a huge area - not true for the dbilas) with two unnecessarily harsh bends going in to the turbo (pretty much mitred bends - may be as restrictive as 7 metres of straight piping). Although the flowmasters may offer an improvement, I can't see how - would love to see one tested.

    The dbilas manifolds seem great though, good luck finding one .

    Good find on the test, saves us all peeing in a bottle to test the intake mods ourselves

    dont waste ur money with the exh manifold (or on any of their dubiously built shockingly fitted parts)

    IMO of course before sum1 tries to preach some bollocks

    Ive had a nightmare with my mates car due to the stupid exh mani
