Im kind of in a mess right now, my turbo in my 99 1.8Q just let go and i dont know what to do, i do have a turbo off a 03 1.8 passat, i was wondering if you guys could give me some insight whether or not the passat turbo would work? Im very new to audi's and dont no much about them if you cant tell lol

Thanks,

it should work the passat engine is the same as ours, The turbo is the ko3 sport... the ko3 sport has the compressor wheel of the ko4 and the exhaust side of the ko3 with a little larger shaft.... you will not get to se any gains from this since the tuning for your car is for the regular ko3.

good luck with the install!!!

Take a picture of it, though it should be exactly the same thing.

did the 03 still have the engine longitudinal?

all a4's do.. as a matter of fact, the only audi's that dont have longitudal drivetrain have a halidex quattro system
