depends on what type of mani you want and your budget of course...
lots of companies to look into ..

Spa
Tubonetics
Active Autowerke
Cartech
Boostlogic
Proturbo
Spiel motorsport
and im not sure if it applies to you but PPF makes e30 manifolds however its probably for e30 model engines.

Buy the SPA manifold + wastegate piping kit from Audspeed. They can work with you on the shipping so that it clears without any additional costs...great guys to deal with!

p.s. I highly suggest getting the wastegate piping kit if you do end up getting the SPA manifold. It saves SOOOOOO much headache!

If anyone here DOES happen to buy the SPA manifold and wants to build their own wastegate piping. I have the special flange and some already bent piping just for it! All you would need is to cut and rotate half the pipe then reweld! (SPA used a special flange which is not standard to turbo kits for the wastegate as a money grab )


Btw, what engine management are you using? If it's a chip, can I buy a copy off ya? (I'll download it using my eeprom programmer)

It'a not a cheap I got a full standalone DTA FAST PRO8 set me back alot of money but it's worth it since this winter i'm gonna change some more parts then i can just turn up the boost and doo little programing. other wize would have to get it chiped again.
