Product Description

Cast Manifold for 2.5 TDi 5 Cylinder PD Engines with Standard Turbo

Replacement Manifold for 5 Cylinder VW Transporter T5 and VW Touareg (Manual)

This Cast Iron Manifold is a direct replacement for the standard Manifold found on the VW Transporter and VW Touareg 2.5 TDi T5 PD130, PD163 Engines

The common problem with the standard OEM manifold is that the pressed steel is prone for cracking around the welds, usually on Cylinder 5. Please see all our photos for examples of the damage

The standard replacement Manifold (which will crack again) costs £370 + VAT from VW. This is for the Bare Manifold, so the Gaskets, Nuts and Studs would need to be purchased separately

Please note that this Manifold only works the standard OEM Turbo or Hybrids based on that

Included in this kit:

1 x Cast Iron Manifold
Turbo Flange Assembly
1 x Tapered EGR Washer
1 x Turbo to Manifold Gasket
1 x Downpipe Gasket
1 x Exhaust Manifold Gasket
1 x Turbo to Engine Sealing Gasket
4 x M8 Bolts - Bolt Turbo to Manifold
4 x M8 Nuts - for Turbo to Manifold

10 x M8x12mm Exhaust Nuts

 The kit is designed to fit the following vehicles: 

VW Transporter T5 - AXD 131 BLJ 163 (Manual and Auto)

Please note fitment to the following will require slight modification as clearance between manifold and turbine housing is very tight VW Transporter T5 - AXE 174
