    if its blowing gunk out then its new manifold time, if the manifold is dry but the bar is off then the 1 fix should work

    Yeah I'm going to clean her up and try the 1 fix as the car seems to be running fine at the moment. Shouldn't it be with it like this?

    that manifold should be gunk free, it means the bearings are going and gunk it blowing up through them, no fix for it, new one. It will get worse and eventually you'll start to lose boost pressure through it

    New inlet mate once its leaking as the bearings are shot allowing up and down movement on the swirls.

    You could try liquid metal them open. So you move the swirls to open and then glue them in that position which may seal it a little - but TBH it will fail

    Could try gluing them with LOTS of glue once you've cleaned the top up. Worked a treat on my last motor (CDTi 150). Check HERE
