    Take your stock bracket, cut off the old actuator, drill 2 new holes for the new actuator and there you have it or buy one for £90! I know which I'd do :-) ... Plus there's no guarantee the forge one actually fit where as your stock one will..

    yup, it'll work, I've looked at doing it for other people as well using something like the T2 actuators Dan can supply.

    I think it's a hugely easy way of getting an uprated actuator on a ko3s without paying forge prices.

    The difference between brackets is silenced and un-silenced compressor housings. But like the guys say, make your own.
