    Am going to starting buying bits for a K03s upgrade and googled it to death.

    Am gonna start with the FPR as its seems the easiest and cheapest place to start. Then injectors etc then find a half decent turbo.

    My question is what FPR do I get, do I just go for a 4bar jobby from an Audi and its plug and play or what?

    You only fit a 4 bar FPR if you have a remap that specifically needs it. You don't run one otherwise, you will overfuel.

    So which comes first remap or FPR?

    As Im guessing from what Ive read the FPR needs upgrading for the K03s

    Some people say no and others say yes but for the sake of twenty quid I would rather do it.

    Pretty sure only REVO stage 2 uses 4bar fpr (which is controversial anyway)

    Also you dont need injectors for a k03s.

    All you NEED is: 1.Turbo 2.Gaskets/washers 3. Silicone turbo intake pipe 4. a re-map (stage 1, 2 or custom.

    Yeah probs stage one then mate. You can run a k03s on that map no problem but to get the most out
    of it you should get a custom map. You thought about k03s hybrid? 270+bhp then

    Get your ko3s fitted first and take a 4 bar fpr with you to the mappers ,only if they require it though mine did when mine was mapped at Jabba

    It's when they mix two turbos together like ko4 and ko3 to get the best of both

    If your sticking with AMD for your stage 2 map then you will need a 4bar fpr they did when they done stage 2 with mine. they should be able to supply you with one when they map it, again they did with me.

    Like emlyn said you dont need injectors etc with a k03s. you can run it on a stage 1 map but its wise to get it mapped as it can run a bit lean on top end when booting it.

    Well all you need is exhaust downpipe gasket , ex manifold gasket maybe and possibly depends on condition ex manifold to turbo gasket . They do recommend to replace the manifold to turbo bolts when changing turbos
