    Default Inlet Manifold Done

    Replaced my inlet manifold yesterday on my 150 cdti, the linkage hadn't fell off yet but was very loose and a lot of oily sludge around the swirl flaps. When i got the manifold off I'm glad i did go ahead and change it there was a massive amount of play in the swirl flaps, at least 2mm of movement up and down so must have been loosing boost out of the loose flaps, and the linkage dropped off as i was taking the manifold off. Not a nice job to do but its all done now and when driving can notice a huge difference.

    How long did the process take start to finish and any particularly tricky aspects? did you replace anything else or was it an off and on?

    It took about 5 hours from start to finish, i replace the manifold and the manifold gasket,the egr gaskets and the throttle housing gasket, while i had it all apart i cleaned the egr valve and boost sensor. the only real problem i had was getting the fuel pump off mine was really tight, did it on the floor with just a trolley jack and axle stands.
