I had my original K03s removed - AOA RECOMMENDS that the engine be removed. Most respected techs recommend that S4 engines be removed for turbo overhauls. That has been my experience. I frequently read/contribute to AudiWorld and Simmply has done some pretty neat stuff - but I wouldn't follow ALL these backyard mechanics to the promised land. Especially with an S4, or any high performance turbo car. Just my $.02

I may have read this method on AW before, maybe not, can't recall much from that.
However I know for sure there's a fellow on AW, his handle is "SIMPLY" and is located in SoCal, has does turbo swap numerous times. He said he no longer needs to drop the engine, just undo the mounts and tilt the engine up a certain way and he can get to the turbos easily. Much quicker than any other known methods. I wish I live close to this guy ;-)
