    ko4 turbo?

    I currently have a ko3s turbo on my audi a3 1.8t sport, Ive had stage 2 remap not got a print out of what bhp its running but will do, My turbo is currently whistling really loud when i hit boost in every gear not sure what it is, someone said my turbo is on its way out, I cant find a decent ko3s turbo and dont really wanna buy a second hand one as i dont know if its been ragged or anything.

    Would a ko4 fit straight on my car, Ive got front mount and new downpipe and a miltekk straight through
    would i need to change downpipe?

    cheers

    If you mean the K04 from an S3 then you will need to change exhaust manifold, TIP, injectors, coolant and oil lines, downpipe, MAF housing and get a custom map..

    ...oh and sort the charge pipe work out a bit too as the K04 is in a slightly different position to the K03... and mod the coolant hard pipe to the heater hoses.. there are a fair few conversion threads on here if yo want to have a search

    Rebuild or hybrid the K03s if you don't want to go down the route of a k04

    Check for boost leaks before you go condemning the turbo.

    If you want to know what turbo you have, look at the ID plate on the compressor housing and see what the part number says it is. Its a small blue tag, and the part number will be something like 5303 123 0053
