    Don't confuse the poor fella.... lol

    A K04 isn't a simple bolt on upgrade, lots of work to do but you can get a K03 hybrid that is a K03 turbo with K04 internals, very popular with Ibiza owners... this will bolt on but you will need to change things like the injectors, MAF, TIP, airfilter, and typically the fuel pump and get it custom mapped... this of course is not going to be easy or cheap as you will have quite an early ECU...

    A K03s from a later 8L A3 should fit yours... Welly did a similar thing to his A3 IIRC... Look for a decent second hand one...

    He did indeed - any K03S will fit, it's not a specific turbo for the AGU.

    I got mine for Motors In Motion. Was second hand with 60k on it. Good as gold though and came with a 3 month warranty.

    You should be looking for a K03-052 or a K03-053. These are K03S turbos. Easily identifiable from the fact they have 8 cold side turbine blades, not 12.

    I have asked for the KO3s as promised earlier, however the guy says it is not in a good condition. therefore it is a no no, and he wont sell it becuase of that.

    Take off the TIP and count the turbine blades. The 052, 053 and 058 are the same anyway!

    Whilst this may be true, Bill is certainly not one of them.... So I hope that wasn't directed at him! :icon_thumright:
