    guys,
    my neighbour has a 1998 a6 1.8t that has started to smoke like crazy and drink oil. we presume the turbo is done and need a replacement. hes having issues getting a secondhand one exactly for his year A6 so my question is,
    what other K03 turbos are a direct fit to the A6? any Seats, VW or other Audi or can be made to fit easily?

    Cheers
    Martyn

    I think any ko3 will fit, if im wrong im sure some one will correct me, normally the only difference is the cold side housing which you can swap off the old one,,,,,, i did it on my old passat as the turbo was off an engine that was positioned a different way..... im pretty sure an a4 turbo is identicle

    The one specifically for our car is k03-029. You could upgrade to a k04-015. Which is a straight swap but I would recommend putting new oil feed on too.
