    From looking at this, it uses a ko3
    MODS - Custom Code phase 1, 007p DV, various powerflex bushes, EBC grooved and drilled - red stuff pads, N249 deletion. Badger5 V2 80mm TIP. Scorpion backbox + custom centre section, LCR front splitter, Jetex Fr-08001, R32 rear ARB, Forged IE rifle drilled rods, 20mm rear & 15mm front spacers.

    TO DO - Coilovers, adjustable tie arms, DP/mani/decat, FMIC and new remap

    But then, I'd doesn't actually state any cars having k03s. So can't help.

    Apart from turbo code is the same as used on a ARY engine. Maybe some
    One can help.

    Just looked at the list, and a 98 a3 8l is down as 180hp which would indicate a k03s...... Is that correct????
    As a k03 is only 150hp!!

    So this turbo had the 5304-123-2018 compressor wheel fitted which is the Unfortunately is the k03 turbo, they get the 180bho by using a stronger actuator.

    It isn't the k03s you want.

    I thought the 180bhp A3 1.8T was unique to the quattro version?
