    It's 6th gear, it's for cruising, not for accelerating unless you're doing some mega speeds

    If you're sitting at 70mph and try to accelerate it should, but it won't be anything impressive. Anything lower than that and it's pretty pointless unless you're on the motorway and just wanting to speed up a little to pass something. In all honesty I don't think the new manifold would make much of a difference unless the old one was seriously shot. Try cleaning your boost sensor and egr aswell

    Different gear ratios buddy, I had a Leon FR before and that was the same, absolute monster. The vec doesn't quite have the same kick esp up the gears
