    Why do people say its hard to change? they say its best to remove the head to make it easier to change the turbo?

    I didn't think so, i've done a few now and don't find it that hard, mind you i did have to make a few tools to get to some of the bolts

    Its not thats its hard, it is fiddly and time consuming especially if you haven't done one before... It should also be mentioned that K03 turbos fitted to A3's, Leon's, Ibiza's and Golfs are much easier to do...

    K03 will come off in less time than a K04, if you are paying someone to remove your turbo then hourly rate plays a factor... its what is more cost effective at the end of the day...

    my old Jabba manifold required me to take the head off to get the manifold off. There was no way to get it off after 6 years of heat cycles with the head on the car. Even then i had to chissel the bolts off.

    new JBS manifold is much more roomy due to it being welded and not cast.
