    Is this the right turbo for my car??

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking at getting my car ready for Stage 2, i Have a 1998 A3 1.8T just running a standard KO3 turbo, 3inch downpipe, Decat, Milltek Exhaust, Forge 008p dv, K&N induction kit and stage 1 revo MAP.

    The Turbo i am looking at is part number KO3-053 is this the correct upgrade to my standard KO3 and will it fit?

    Also what other parts would you recommend for Stage 2 MAP?

    Any and all answers welcome Thanks!

    Would get a custom map to take advantage of the K03s upgrade as generic maps won't cut it really...

    Please discuss prices by PM or put a price in the classifieds ad... no 'for sale discussions in the main forum please...

    To the OP... if you plan to fit the hybrid then you will need a lot more bits... VR6 maf housing, bigger injectors, different TIP and definitely a custom map (your revo won't cut it)

    Cheers tuffty will keep money talk to personal messages. About the injectors I'm trying to source some calibra 440cc yellow injectors as they were recommended to me. Would they be enough? Where is the best place to get a new TIP as I'm pretty new to the turbo game, used to simple V8s lol would just definitely need a fmic? Apologies for me rambling on with questions.
