    i had a 1.6 audi a3 1999 year, it was slow and got on my nerves, so iv had it converted to a 1.8 turbo engin code AGU, it has a ko3s turbo, injectors from the 2.5L audi tt, intercooler ment for a evo, remap, de-cat and back box, dump valve, manual boost control, im looking for new boost hoses, good exhaust system inc manifold, ko4 turbo, and any other mods-parts anyone would recomend, im not sure if the ko4 turbo would bolt strait on now or would i have to change something? and is it worth changine the cams i had a 106 gti before and i changed the cams and it had a big effect on the power? where would i get all these parts from iv looked everywhere and all i can find is the boost hoses? helllpppppp IMG_0061.jpg IMG_0062.jpg

    Sounds like he's already done the conversion Jase....

    Ko4 won't bolt straight on mate, lots of work to get a ko4 on there.

    As for parts, check out websites, check out the forum sponsor section, there are loads of different companies there who all hav really good websites where you can browse to your hearts content.

    Right... the insurance premium on a conversion is normally more so how have you managed to pull that off?

    Right... I would advise you don't post like you have on an open public forum concerning your insurance indiscretions but seeing as you are trying to sort this then lets try and help you get your car sorted... :)

    I would have a search as there are loads of threads about doing K04 conversions in particular Prawn who has indeed done this very thing albeit he started off with a 1.8t in the first place so I would read his thread...

    thats what he is trying to do.
    if you read his insurance thread it says he was quoted 1600 as a standard 1.6 sport, but now he's done the conversion they want 5k!
