    a3 1.8t k03 mods

    hi all now ive recently got an a3 1.8t on an s plate and im wondering about more power but i see alot of forums of people saying the k03 is only good for 190bhp after a map so i dont want to go start buying fmic 007forge valve miltek exhaust etc if im going to be limited to a certain bhp and i know upgrading upto the k04 turbo isnt the easy or cheapest thing going so im thinking if i get a fmic exhaust decent airfilter setup 007forge valve and a decent map what power i would be looking at or if the turbo will limit the bhp? any help appreciated

    Its a easy job, just a crap job to get to all the bolts and that, takes forever!

    If you gona buy a tip get one for a k03s already or you will be wasting money

    K03s change is not particularly difficult. You will have a fair amount more then 210 if you do all the stage 2 mods then get the k03s mapped by someone decent..

    TIP - Turbo inlet pipe.
    Ite the pipe that goes from the turbo to the maf.
    *MAF- your airflow sensor

    As far as I know the manifold, downpipe, oil and water lines are the same

    And a front mount intercooler, and a full turbo back exhaust, then a remap and you'll see 220-230bhp if all is in good health.

    Beyond that, be prepared to start spending lots of money!

    Lmao prawn also knows!

    All I wanted when I started was a set of rims and coilovers..... 256bhp later its not enough! I needed looks, handling and stopping power!
