    Talking fitting ko3 or ko3s to standard 1.8 agu engine

    hi i have had my 1.8 sport a3 for a while now however its too slow lol
    im seriously considering putting a ko3 or ko3s on and getting the car remapped.

    i was just wondering what else i would need to do to the car in order for it to cope with it
    also how difficult and expensive would it be to do this

    many thanks guys

    Maybe better off selling the car mate and buying a turbo one or just buying a full engine and getting it fitted

    engine internals are differnet too, you'd really need 1.8T pistons.
