there are reports of it cracking after a while but i'm sure its nothing that cant be fixed by proper relief cuts. But if something has undergone 300 hours of dyno testing it can't be bad.

You'd probably need a right-hand drive car for that manifold to fit. Think about where that places the turbo and where the steering column is.

Really? So if going from 114bhp (UK version) to 150bhp (+32%) on a 1.6 @ 6 psi is shitty, than what do you call going from 142hp to 178hp (+25%) on a MSM 1.8 @ 8psi 15 years later?
It should be making 1.8/1.6*142*150/114 = 210 hp ...
