    i got a tqs aswell and ive almost got all the bits i need for a k04 conversion unless you got lots of cash new is out the question, I would advise brake and suspension upgrade first as the 288mm isn't really up for all the extra slowing for corners

    Awesomegti.com is good should be a link on here somewhere.
    i think most people on here would recomend getting the wellycooler and silicone pipe from ash (autosiliconehoses.com or something like that)

    Have a look at my thread as I have a TQS. I perferred the idea of a k04 to a k03 hybrid, but each to their own.

    mate dont go ko3s just get a K04 with Badger5's intake pipe... relentless manifold , FMIC S3 injectors and i think you may these figures get a recir valve not a "dump valve" its an Audi not a tatty 'honda'


    plus change the cat back .. DP etc... as for parts as other said awesomegti will take care of you in that aspect i deal with them and they are just great.

    Not starting a argument but k03s would be a lot easier to do.plus nick at rtech has found a way to get 260bhp from it with wmi. Depends what you want but a well setup and tuned k03s will be rapid!
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    It is a good idea keeping k03s for ease of modification but if you want a easy quick car get an s3 with a fmic and a few other little bits and bobs and you got 270 right there it will be cheaper plus you get all the extras
