    Also is it a reasonable diy? as id like a go myself.

    IS there anything else thats needed? pipes etc.

    After installing should i see about 220bhp from a remap on my 150 agu?

    many thanks in advance

    I wouldn't touch that K03S with a 10 metre cattle prod personally - chinese dodgy 'I'm going to blow up' version.

    The swap is a reasonable DIY yes - there is a good guide somewhere and I will see if I can fish it out.

    I know someone who is selling a K03S - low mileage, with a non cracked manifold!
