    A guy on here - Asharia I think his username is - has done it. Ask him or check his build thread...

    It would be more than just changing the turbo though. At the very least it will need remapped too.

    BV43 turbo is a straight swap,but you need a bigger intercooler,FMIC is ideal and custom remap to suit the turbo;you can gain 70-80hp with this setup,depends how talented is the tuner.

    I think I've asked you before, but are you on the standard clutch? I'd have real worries at that power that it wouldn't last more than a year, esp with quattro. Also, how about pipework & pressure - any mods, any problems?

    Would it be best to only do this with a quattro as I've got FWD and thinking of doing this.

    What kinda money is involved in doing the FMIC? can you not just steal one off a 170BHP b7 a4 ???
