    Is it a genuine kkk ? I think the k03 029 is the b6 turbo iirc or they were were fitted to some b5's there's a thread somewhere on here.

    You got a pic of the label where it says k03-029 ? Yeah it's the 190bhp B6 turbo of the bfb engine and I think some APU engines, I'm sure they never fitted a k03s to any b5 as you only find the k03s on the transverse cars i.e. golf tt s3 etc iirc

    Its not the 190hp turbo, its just a standard K03, but it is very slightly larger than the 005.

    It'll fit just fine and work just as your old one did.

    The K03S was only fitted to the 190hp B6 in longitudinal format, and its code is K03-073.

    Did you charge the turbo with oil correctly before running it up ??

    Boost is only generated when the engine is loaded. Just keep a listen out for change of sound

    Check all the boost hoses, one might not be tight.

    I'd really only change the feed and return lines if the turbo had been starved of oil or if it had sludge issues.

    Every turbo we replace in the workshop we use a new feed pipe but as said probably just give it a flush out and should be alright.

    Depends why its failed i guess.

    If the engines sludged up to its eyeballs then sure replace it, but if the wastegate penny fell off an otherwise working turbo theres no reason to expect the pipe to need changed.

    Gotta make money some how considering 80% of the work being carried out is good will or warranty so we make F all on it.

    well i took the feed line off the turbo and turned the car over an the oil came out fine, i changed the oil but not the oil filter when i did the turbo, the oil came out really dark an sludgy is this cause i didnt change the filter, i didnt really want to change it cause ive got it booked in for a service in 2 wks an there gone do it for free. i spoke to a mate today an he said that it could be over boasting thats while it might b making that whistle noise, he said the best way to check is to get a boast gauge, dont i have to alter the accuator to change the boast, which means the turbos got to come out, if it is over boasting what do i need to do???

    The boost is controlled by the ECU so long as the pipework is correct.

    Its either a leak or a broken turbo if its whistling loudly.

    So what happens if I alter the actuator? Thought that altered the boost, with some boost gauges u get a boost control, how does that work if only the ecu controls the boost

    I'd start by just pluming in a boost gauge and see what your actual boost is.

    You can't really adjust the boost unless you get the car mapped, you can do a mod to have it kick in a bit harsher, I personally don't believe in mbc's unless your using it just to prevent boost spikes. Also check your vac lines for the FPR and DV also check the condition of the DV as they are common for going I Replaced mine for a forge DV and when I removed the old one you could blow through it with little effort.

    if you alter the prolad on the turbo, assuming it was holding fine before, all you will do is move the power slightly further up the band as it will take more movement of the actuator to release the flap. The boost is controlled by a calculation made by the ECU of load V airflow, not much you can do with trying to fool it

    i plumbed a t piece into the vaccum line between inlet manifold - dumpvalve/recirc valve should be easy lol. fpr is fuel pressure regulator and you shouldnt be worrying about that yet i dont think . get that boost gauge plumbed in matey tells you everything tou need to know

    That's in bar so should be just over 0.5 for FWD just under 1.0 for quattro.
