      Turboing my b3 passat wagon 16v. This is going to be a long build. Because I'm just getting the parts when I have spare money from my weekly budget. But I ordered a manifold today and I also got 42lb Injectors. Car is currently on ms2 with arp headstuds.

      I think I bought the same manifold, but when I bolted it to the head the turbo wouldn't clear the head. I do have a fairly large size turbocharger.
      Just a heads up, make sure your turbo will fit.
