This is the number stamped on the case. It is from an Audi A4 2002 I believe. I think it's the sport turbo. It only has 40K on it. How much would you pay for it as well. How do I tell which turbo it is? I was told it was a K03 at least.

That look exactly like it and the numbers match. Mine has only one big "K" though. Does that matter? I am assuming the "S" after K03 means sport? How much should I have paid for this turbo from a 2002 A4 with 40K on it??

Thanx again

Not a penny, take this opportunity to upgrade. Either source a used K04 or buy a new K04 ($750)

What cars did the K04 come in. Or which cars can I take them from to fit my A4?? What should I look for in a used turbo like on ebay? Are there any mods required?

Basically I bought a worthless turbo?? Nobody would have paid anything for it. Even if I needed a replacement??

No you didn't buy a worthless turbo, it's just a stock turbo. Most people try to upgrade to a K04 when they need to replace their k03. And don't buy a turbo off ebay.

Well that makes me feel a little better. I wasn't talking about buying a new K04 from an Ebay dealer. I was talking about getting a used factory turbo from somebody that took it off their ?????? So if I knew which cars came with the turbo I need, I can search for it. Or if I know what the stampings should be. By the way I am a poor audi owner! $800 for a turbo is a little out of reach for me in this current economy. Plus whatever it would cost to make it work as well.

you can run the K04 on stock programming if you had to.

but, ur best bet for the used K04's is the AZ classifieds.

No car came with the K04-15 stock.

You don't want to start out a poor Audi owner. Lots of Audi owners are poor but they didn't start out that way.
