Turbo upgrade

Hi all

I have a technical question, am looking to Presision 5858 Turbo for the Golf R? So do i need to replace the manifold?

And issues with this type? And feedback from who have used it?

Not only manifold, pretty much everything from wastegate, downpipe, cooling and oil lines, fuel injectors, fuel pump etc. Major power though if you do switch, awesome dual ball bearing turbo and of course a proper tune.

Just have a look at some of the kits from sponsoring vendors to see all the parts involved.

When I rebuild my motor next year I will be moving from K04 to something like this.

Anything beyond a Loba LO400 and you should upgrade your pistons, connecting rods, as well as your clutch packs on the DSG.

Not necessary. Get a UM DSG tune and call it a day. There are 600 whp fsi's out there with only a DSG tune doing fine
