      Hello guys, looking to re-live my VR6 turbo glory days from about 10 years ago, just snagged a 2001 12v with 79k miles on it for a dedicated turbo project. I am in parts gathering mode and am leaning towards the ATP manifold, I have my mind set on a T4 6262 and am worried about rain tray clearance.

      Any mk4 guys top mounting turbos with the atp mani? seems the mk3's have better clearance, or should i grab a kinetic manifold.


      Engine bay on my old gti mk4 ~2008 ish time frame, little t3/t4 on a kinetic mani

      The ATP manifold & 6262 even with S-cover will clear the rain tray.

      ATP manifold and 6266 and didn't fit on my mk4 VRT, but it came pretty close so I don't see why the 6262 wouldn't fit.

      What compressor housing did you have? I am looking at the SP cover, and where you top mounted with the compressor on the pax side?

      I'm running a 6265 t3 .81 with an atp manifold on my mk4 and it fits fine. You should be good.

      My clearance has been fine, compressor mounted driver's side.

      You start running into clearance issues when it looks like this. The cold side compressor has about a mm of clearance from the top left of the rain tray. I'm just going to cut it out so that it can have some room if it moves a little.
