Two things. Three. Actually. New to the forum here, just stole an a6 from someone. 2002 2.7t Quattro to be exact. So I bought this car Russian roulette style. She lost the key and said there was something wrong with the car and she didn't know what. It sat for over a year. Until I beat her up. I mean really beat her up. She wanted 3k. Without a key and some type of issue after a 30 minute round with mrs Tyson, I paid a thousand dollars. Got the key and said a prayer. Low and behold she starts up after the fuel lines revived and she runs amazing. Until she warmed up. Pulled the supply lines to both turbos and out came about a qt each. So I think I made out pretty damn well seeing as they're not shot the seal just blew. So I'm rebuilding them myself. Just need to know how hard it is w/o pulling motor. Second. Someone saw my car and started talking to me about them and happened to mention mine was somewhat of a few 2.7 a6 v6 biturbo six-speed. Is his information correct. Humans are such an inaccurate source sometimes. Any insight? Glad to join the family guys. Also how do I post a pic. Was going to do a DIY when I did mine

I can sell you a ko3 if you need one. It'll be coming off of a 2.7 S4 (same turbos)

Well I just bought the full rebuild kit with the step gap piston rings and 360' thrust bearings. My intention is to rebuild these. Drive em till they blow. In the mean time... Get some decent junk yard k03s, buy a k04 rebuild kit and mill the housing so basically making some pretty bad ass junkyard frankensteins. But thanks on the offer. Now as far as the guy stating there are few six speeds in the states, is this accurate?

FWIW, you'll get a lot more response to your thread in the right forum. Your car is a C5, so there's a lot more details on the turbos there than here.

As for 6 speed C5, yes they are out there and quite a few in fact.

posting pics is super easy, just host them somewhere then use the pic option in the forum and link to the IMG.

Yes there are a decent amount of six speeds. Not common, but I wouldn't call them rare either.

As far as replacing them with the engine in the car... Good luck. Engine needs to come out.
