    Saw this on ebay earlier I havent heard of it before but perhaps others have.



    K03-SP51 Compressor Upgrade Kit

    Do you own a Passat/A4/A6/Octavia with a longintudinal 1.8t engine equipped with a K03-005>29 or the larger K04-0015 turbocharger and want more power or have a damaged K03/04 that needs repair? Our SP51 compressor kit will bolt directly onto any oil/water K03 or K04 turbocharger this specific compressor housing fits the "longitudinal" 1.8t engine /B5-B6 (chassis).

    We can also help clients with the S4, GOLF, S3, TT "transverse" & "2.7t" engine style wanting to upgrade to our SP51 by means of a "CORE Exchange" .

    There's a few outifts that do this. Basically you're buying a new core for the turbo. You can get hybrids as well as OEM cores.

    I imagine you'd still need to send your turbos off to a proper outfit to get them fitted, otherwise you might have balancing and actuator calibration problems.

    Well good luck with the fitting m8.
    You going double din with the console?
    So I take it you got some RS4 seats then seeing as your fitting split seats?
    Splits seats will fit fine so long as you have the locking catch and weld it on as far as I know.
    Let us know how you get on then m8.

    yeah, double din, but the single din to start with,i have all of the hardware for the split seats, cost me around £50 for all of the brackets,bolts and clips.

    I want to remove the firwall at the back too, as i want it as OEM as possible

    I luckily got one an A/C with heated seat controls while purchasing parts for the audi satnav conversion. Got mine from ebay.de for about 30 squids. So all I need now are the seats to match pffft. I am so horny for the the RS4 seats (hard to get at reasonable price) that I am not even thinking of any other type of seats. Take plenty of pics of the install and try to convince me that S4 seats are just as good. I currently have regular cloth sports seats but without the tasty electric controls and without heating but they are cum-fart-able :fart:.
