I've just bought some from dubpower for my mk4


I'll be DIY fitting them myself and was just wondering is anyone else has? any tips? or does anyone know of a guide on the net?

Never fitted any but i would guess it is a case of un-bolting you old cat pipe and manifolds and bolting these in place with new gaskets and bolts.

Yeh I guess but it's nice to know of anyone else who's done it.

I removed a bmw m3 s50b30 manifold once it required you to jack the engine up slightly off it's mount to get the manifold out.

I was quoted £300+ to fit manifolds as its a complete pig of a job but well worth trying it yourself if your confident enough & have the equipment to do it!

I fitted my own on my mkv . Was tight but just take your time, I had to take the inlet manifold off which meant front bumper and front clip removed to get to some of the lower bolts in the inlet manifold, then it's easier to take the heat shield and all the manifold nuts off, spray the manifold bolts with wd40 and leave for a bit as a couple of mine snapped I'd also get some new cat- manifold bolts as these where a bit rusty and snapped also
