    Hi, I have bought a k03s for my agu engined a3. i have purchased everything needed to do the swap, however, i only have one stud fitted to the turbo where it connects to the downpipe. My question is, where can i purchase the studs? i called porstmouth audi today and they said they couldnt find anything without looking at the stud i have.
    any help?
    cheers

    just buy and hi-tensile bolt mate and it will be ok!You will need bolts that can handle alot of heat as you know the turbo's get boiling!!

    Portsmouth audi gave me the studs I needed mate.....

    They'll want chassis numbers and ****, and when you tell them it's a different turbo they'll cry and tell you they cant help.

    Just pretend you want replacement studs for your car assuming it's the original turbo and they'll know what to order in. about £2 each!
