So right now I have a stock(except wheels) 2001 a41.8tqm w/ 80k miles on it. I was lookin around craigslist and found a couple of parts, and wanted to get some opinions. I really dont know much about the inner workings of my car so some guidence would be useful.

#5- http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/pts/555232371.html

Are any of these good finds? good deals?

Thanks again, Mike

Can't use the S4 exhaust. You can get those springs for cheaper online, or other brands. The turbo's are more tricky. You don't just wanna get something to get something. Usually when switching out the turbo, you need to put some decent planning into it. Many things are needed to make another turbo work. Unless its a K04. That pretty bolt on. You might want to just look into a chip man. Maybe an exhaust. Those are like the most basic power adders and not to expensive. You have an 01 so you should have the good turbo, K03s. Look around the classifides for some parts.

Search it up, and feel free to ask any questions

that KO4 wont work, you need a KO4-15. and if you have a KO3s I dont think its worth it, and if you do go BT like the first link, it will cost a LOT more money than just a turbo, but with that said, dont get an internally wastegated BT. also, dont buy one used, that T04E in the second link is either a knock off or its blown...if yiou buy a good big turbo expact to spend a grand on it alone, then a manifold, fmic, tuning, exhaust, clutch, injectors, internals (you could get away with stock on certain setups), maintenance parts.....ect ect ect ...its not a cheap hobby we all share, but as stated above, invest in a chip and some springs and you will have fun with that for a while and its relatively cheap.
