    Turbo question

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Yes I searched. No I didn't find the answer

    Does anyone know if a K03 turbo from a b6 2.0 (with manifold ) will bolt up to a b5 1.8 in place of the current K03 and manifold?
    Any info is Much appreciated

    That is a B7. And the manifold mounting is different, so I would say no. It also has the n75 and recirculation valve electronically plumbed in, so that would be an extra no. But I'm sure you can figure a way to make it work. Just would not be worth it IMO.

    If you are hell bent on using that turbo, adapters are available. There were all over the place before but I can't find them quickly now. You are looking to adapt the 1.8t head to use a 2.0 fsi/tfsi exhaust manifold

    You can drill mounting holes to make it work sans adapter... but youíll need to tune the n75 and the recirc out use an MBC...

    It can def be made to work, just not sure it is worth the trouble when used direct swap ones can be sought for cheap. Can even come from a VW. Or even one with a CHRA that is a direct swap.

    Modifying to me is all about thinking outside the box. But if just wanting to replace a blown stock turbo, I would personally go a different route.
