    afaik they were fitted to AJL engined 1.8TQS cars

    I'm not sure you actually need a K03S anyway, as the only difference is a slight change in the compressor wheel, and the 51R has a different compressor anyway.

    I believe the k03 029 has a larger turbine diameter. The SP51-029 will make more power than SP51-005 as per ebay.
    I have three k03-005's with the same cracks in the turbine housing, is this common?
