Default Best T2 flanged turbo for built ALH?

I have a suspected 1.6TDI exhaust manifold with a T2 flange and a VNT2052 mounted up. Looking for more everything.

What is the best setup I could mount to this manifold? GTD28XXVRK?

Is this manifold a big bottleneck and silly not to replace with the turbo upgrade?

Thx

manifold already has an adapter bolted to it
why worry about a manifold's compatibilities when a turbo's like a thousand dollars already

I'd be very tempted by that cast one piece 2260 manifold

If it makes sense to still use this manifold with a new turbo then my exhaust and downpipe is already setup. Curious if there is a good way to keep my setup as is with only a turbo change down the road

downpipe will need a new flange welded on no matter what, likely angles adjusted too
