    a couple of months ago
    k04 and k03 have similar manifolds so it might be a good option for the K03 but not for the K04

    but even...what we are really waiting for is an in-manifold...that would do a difference

    If you look at the pictures for the transverse and longitudinal you can see the flange is in different places.Id say its the same mani just flange on different sides.Ill know more tomorrow.

    longitudal engines... that not a K04 mani for an S3.... you may well be able to use this to fit a K04 to an A4 (one of the most popular Audi's in the states) but certainly not an S3...

    Its the same style as an A3 K03 mani... a K04 'may' bolt on but it will position the turbo differently and nothing will line up (assuming the picture is correct)... you may even have to clock the comp housing to even get it to clear the mani...

    Looks like a K03 mani to me...
