    Changing the turbo when i do my full exhaust system, was considering an S3 turbo, is this a direct fitment? Anyone selling one? Help would be appreciated.

    I know nothing about this, BUT:

    I think it would help if you posted what kind of engine you currently have
    (and I think just bolting on some other type of turbo - besides fittment issues - will NOT work straight away, you'll probably require new ECU software)

    You've got a 2.0TFSi if I'm right.

    Fitting may not be too much of an issue but you'd need to think also of fuelling,exhaust,intake system and software.
    Plus if you wind it up a lot then your rods may need sorting.

    sorry it's a 2.0tfsi quattro. the software etc i have some that will do me a remap with the k04 turbo on, and im getting a full stainless custom exhaust on it so what do you think i need to do on top? also, i understand if you're gonna wind it up a lot you need a steel bottom end?
