pull the motor it was the easiest was i found
So, have any of you have the opportunity/disadvantage of removing a 1.8T ATP exhaust manifold before?
I'm in the process of getting the jetta project back to stock status so I can start playing with it and this manifold has now become the bane of my existence. I'll be bending a 12mm wrench this weekend in hopes of following the info some other guys have done here on the vortex.
Just wondering if anyone has any pointers before I started breaking stuff out of anger...
Is it easier just from a maneuverability standpoint? It's not like you have more clearances. I could see the turbo install part being easier, but only the manifold is my issue currently.

theres only like 6 bolts that suck on those if i remember. use the bent up wrench. grind the sides flat. use a mirror. it can be done. i did it a couple times in the past.
