    The old K04 question again.

    Right we all know that s3 and tt K04 turbs wont fit.

    But exactly how difficult would it be to make them fit?

    Surely they cant be soo different that it would be impossible to adapt one to fit? With hoses and other pipe work.

    Reason being is that they are pretty easy to get hold of and i want to see what would be need (if possible) to get it to fit?

    internal are the same it is just the compressor layout to take into account the packaging required in a transverse S3/GTi/1.8t etc

    could be done. anything can be done, time and effort probably aren;t worth it when you can get one for $750

    Does anyone have any pics of one of each. As surely if it fits onto the manifold then its just a case of a couple of hoses and oil lines?

    As far as i know that K04-15 is not as tuneable as the K04 used on S3's and TT's hence looking if it is possible to fit one.

    the connections on the k04 are in the wrong place to use with a stock manifold. probably would be in the way of the engine block as the manifold is really short on the transverse, not sure.

    i think the k04-015 which is an upgrade for the tranverse, uses a modifield k03/ko3s housing and a k04 compressor wheel?

    to be honest i think a cheapish solution would be to get a garrett t3 compatable manifold and put a t3 on there, they are two a penny second hand, and i think you can later goto a GT series as i think the mounts are the same.

    the real cost involved in going larger turbo is the mapping and the injectors, the cost of the turbo stuff is only half of it.
