It shouldnt be too difficult. It wont be easy either. I recently performed major work on my 97 1.8T A4. The most difficult procedure I endured was to remove the bottom bolt from the turbo, there are three bolts in all. If you are up to a decent challenge to save a lot of money, then I would encourage doing the work yourself. Good Luck

Just a word of advice, ask around here. There are TONS of people that I'm sure are local. Order some pizza, get some beer, and have someone who knows a thing or two help you out. People love to help out around here which is why this community strives. Ask questions, email people, get your nose into books. Knowledge is KEY! Good luck!
