Just looked at the list, and a 98 a3 8l is down as 180hp which would indicate a k03s...... Is that correct????
As a k03 is only 150hp!!

So this turbo had the 5304-123-2018 compressor wheel fitted which is the Unfortunately is the k03 turbo, they get the 180bho by using a stronger actuator.

It isn't the k03s you want.

Cheers for the info!!! If I can get it cheap enough I might just take it off and keep it until I can get it reconed and upgraded to the s!!!

I thought the 180bhp A3 1.8T was unique to the quattro version?
