    Here's the dual pipes in my MK1.

    The dual downpipe manifold from a MK3 is a great improvement. It depends on what mods you've done to the motor as to how much extra power you get but 5hp on a standard motor sounds right.
    How difficult is the swap? I'm assuming and hoping not the head off like in your pictures?!?

    Head doesn't need to come off but makes it much easier to get to all the bolts.
