S3 Pollution Plus+ Edition
In a word. Yes.
But to explain a little more, it'll be sticky turbo veins, which cause an overboost fault code.
Get it plugged in and scanned, if it reads overboost. pretty much 100% it's 1 x turbo pooped.
As you may know it's stupidly popular for these Turbos to do this, massive let down on Audi's side.
Whats your current mileage?
It is possible to remove and clean, mr muscle and all that.
I wouldn't though, use yours as an exchange and get a re-con one, the last thing youd want to do is to take the thing off twice.
OR use it as an excuse to go BIG turbo...Then comes clutch issues though....and mapping costs...
