Maybe so, but you did say you were pushing 20psi. On a b6 that would be marginal for something smaller than a T3 which is in itself small anyway. It's your business at the end of the day, but you could probably make the same power and with less heat and stress on less psi with a larger turbine/turbo.

Amen!!!
20psi ***** your mother, you need to be built to see any longevity at that level, get a bigger turbo, better mani and do yourself a favor. You can always sell your current turbo to regan some money.

The chinese SR20 turbo manifolds all crack like that too. I much prefer cast iron turbo manifolds, they seem to last forever.

Bullshit, 20psi on a garbage turbo (9b,11b,13g,etc) is nothing, its 20psi on a real/decent turbo is what ***** you(60trim t3+).

or VTA Wastegate?

Just get another one and swap it out. It's only costing you about $45/year to run it- right?
