    Undo the 3 turbo/mani bolts, take the exhaust manifold off and all will be revealed... the coolant pipe that goes around the back of the engine under the ex mani just needs moving down a tad to get to the stud nuts (cyl 1 and 2)... the rest should be fairly easy to work out...

    Undo the downpipe from under the car...

    you will need turbo to manifold gasket and turbo to downpipe gasket.

    Make sure before you fit new turbo you use a syringe and push some oil into the oil feed on the turbo also worth replacing the engine oil and filter at the same time. Me personally always unplug the injectors when its done and turn it over to make sure the oil gets round properly and then connect injectors and fire it up. However you will need diagnostics to clear the open circuit codes for the injectors

    Hope that helps

    gasket from main dealer yes. you also need oil and water crush washers. Google ko3S swap and there's a massive how to guide on UK MKIVS by a member called NooNoo.

    I've never needed to remove a manifold to do it in the past though. Comes out easily enough without

    With the manifold off you can easily get to the oil and water hoses on top... just easier... why make more work for yourself

    Can have one off in less than an hour...

    3 bolts is the exhaust manifold side, 4 bolts is the downpipe side.

    It's just the other way up in pictures.
