    I'm sure i read somewhere that anything before 2001 was a k03 and anything after was a k03s :wacko:


    Does anyone know what turbo the AUM engine has got??

    Just count the blades ko3 has 12, ko3s has 8 it may have been changed by a previous owner, as it is a popular upgrade..

    With those mods expect up to 200 BHP max from the K03. Up to 230 max with the K03s.

    I have a KO3 with a Forge TIP, induction kit, Custom Code Phase 1 map and a cat back exhaust system and its about 190bhp. The improvement over standard is massive to be honest and makes it a lot nicer to drive.

    I'd like to upgrade to a KO3S at some point and add a downpipe and FMIC into the mix but its all money thats needed elsewhere!

    Mine was done by Midland VW in Cannock but R Tech are the boys to go and see these days it would seem based on the excellent feedback they've been getting off members on here :)

    If I was doing it again I'd be contacting them for sure.

    Thanks mate .

    So mine must be a k03S :)


    Is there really a big enough difference between the k03 and the ko3s for people to justify changing to the k03s?


    I does look a bit bigger it the picture posted but other than that what else is there ? .
