    smaller turbo k03s off the 180bhp engines also the downpipe comes off the bottom where as the k04 downpipe comes off the side off the turbo best place to look would be ebay or maybe local vag tuning companys sometimes have secondhand ones when people have had big turbo conversions done

    Although they seem to be having phone problems today to be fair, I called earlier.

    They will do you one on exchange normally....

    You could also look into getting a replacement CHRA through Melett. This might be a good option since you are not looking for a performance upgrade.
