    yeah you'd need a different tip but if i were you id fit a forge silicone one while your changine the turbo

    other than that it will bolt straight on mate, obviously you'd need a remap

    as far as the k03s is concerned, it is a straight bolt on to our agu, but i think the outlet is bigger, so you WILL need a tip to fit it, be it forge/badger5/oem.
    and r-tech is deff the best place around for the remap, they r vag specialists and a gr8 bunch of guys. had mine mapped there last week!! i have been on the market for a k03s for a while, but they seem to be getting snapped up pretty quickly, and the ones that do get through get get quite expensive. good luck.

    cheers pal, could do with someone developing a 3'' tip for the a3, some of the gains on the S3's look awesome!

    Bill has one on the go for his KO3s'd ibiza, and I think he might have cracked it, but it involves moving gear linkages and something else as far as I'm aware. I think I might just get a forge one, as I can't see a 3" one being available anytime soon.

    I think the cheap and cheerful TIPs on eBay do the same job as the forge ones.does anyone know how much a forge TIP is?

    its about 3 hours from me but when iv got cash floating about will get it done, is it worth remapping a standard 1.8 20v turbo k03 what gains could you expect ,standard its around 150bhp and 155ft/lb i think so what would a map take it up to without moding anything

    wayne - it doesnt matter what turbo you have, a silicone one will fit both k03 and k03's no problems at all

    i havent had it done yet but i keep speaking to the lads at r-tech and they're really helpful they specialise in the 1.8t engines and dont really touch anything else i think i spoke to wayne??? and he quoted me around 190bhp and 220ib/ft not sure if that is fly or wheel measurements, but that was on a completely stand a3 he said with induction and tip you could touch 200bhp trouble is after that k03 runs out of puff so its either ko3s time or hybrid/aftermarket, he quoted me £250 i think but it get three runs on the dyno full vcds check smoke leak test and a health check and wont map if its wrong, from what they told me and what i heard on here its a really through service and the lads are brilliant, its defo the place im goin as soon as i get the cash!!!
