    Question 1.8t S line K03s ?

    Does anybody know if the Turbo from a 1.8t S line (b7) is a k03s, and if its a direct replacement for an AEB (b5). Cheers

    There is no such thing as a K03s, there are different models of KO3 which give different power outputs but none are called K03s no matter what you may hear on various boards (this is direct from Borg Warner tech dept who make them).

    The 1.8T B7 is 163hp as standard so I doubt its a high output one.

    i think the 190hp version of the 1.8T is the only B6/7 to use the "k03s" turbo, i've just checked the part numbers, and the manifold and downpipe gaskets are the same on all longitudinal engines, so the turbo from any 180/190hp longitudinal 1.8t should drop in.
