    hi i have had my 1.8 sport a3 for a while now however its too slow lol
    im seriously considering putting a ko3 or ko3s on and getting the car remapped.

    i was just wondering what else i would need to do to the car in order for it to cope with it
    also how difficult and expensive would it be to do this

    many thanks guys :)

    Maybe better off selling the car mate and buying a turbo one or just buying a full engine and getting it fitted

    as he said, would be a waste of money converting a NA car to a turbo lol

    engine internals are differnet too, you'd really need 1.8T pistons.
