Studs on the manifold aren't a big deal, some of them will come out some may stay in. Also I pulled my turbo right out through the top with no issues on BSH motor mounts without moving the motor. Everyone bitches about getting the turbo out but that was by far the easiest part of the job.

Ahann i see one other question do i need yo change my discharge pipe or outlet pipe
You don't HAVE to if you make a small modification to the K03 muffler / output flange and bolt it to the K04 but yes you should get a proper discharge pipe.

I used the stasis one when I went k04 a few years ago. Worst part for me was getting the turbo out and then that damn m14 or whatever size it is at the bottom of the intake manifold

Yeah its not an easy job but not difficult if tools are available specially a lifter to lift the car up so i can safely get under it...is 66$ good price for a ko4 discharge pipe?

Yes that's a good price. You really ask too many questions. Just bust out the tools and do the swap, geeze.
