GT 4-2-1 exhaust manifold upgrade

Recommended Posts

1vw2many

Hi so over the weekend i managed to fit my 4-2-1 branch manifold on my gt and imasaf full exhaust system from Germany  and i must say its a vast improvement . So I'm looking on advice on what other improvements i can make ? Advice is welcome please.

 

Is it advisable that i use exhaust tape what ever its called on the 4-2-1 manifold ? might be difficult now its in but sure i can manage if needed.

 

Thank you.

I brought it of someone on here , it has lamb socket and it fitted perfect. It just sounds better smoother etc.

A 270 cam and g40 injectors with an 8k ecu chip will liven it up but remember to adjust all the settings to make the most of them

Can i get any more gains if i just get 8k chip ? or does the cam also need fitting ?

The cam will make the most difference, the other things work along with it

If you go on the newman  website you can find it there 8v vw polo mk2 i think

 

They come up on ebay every now and then for 120ish 2nd hand 

 

New tappets are always good too when swapping the cam, oil and rocker seal too
