      I think you are off base with your characterization of the GTI as a "special" car in this regard. This is not a Ferrari that Maranello will not let you own unless you can prove previous ownership....

      I'm not sure about the manifold causing problems, although I'm sure it could. My issue was with the Valve Cover being all cracked up internally, with the channels and baffles that route air/oil vapor...
