i think the k03 has the silencer on it while the k03s doesnt, that should help you if your trying to distinguish the two


This is incorrect. The K03s had two different versions. The '01 AWW engines came with a k03s that had no silencer, and the AWP engines from '02+ had silencers on them.

Cause my aww has the one pictured on the bottom, and my bother awp has the one on top...
I thought maybe someone switch the turbo out or something... So there is no need to change mine out. Thanks for the money saving post.

Useless bit:
There was a company making a sleeve at one point to block the holes in the silencer of the ko3s, and were planning on selling it for $70-80 iirc.

That'll silence the silencer.

What's the point of the silencer anyhow? I like to here the turbo spool. And WTF is the sleeve, it that to transform it a k03s aww?

The point of a silencer is to silence.
VW thought we didn't need to hear the turbo I guess.
The sleeve would be to make the silencer ineffective, ie into a straight tube. Ignore the sleeve, like he said, useless.
