you don't say what model this is as S-line is an equipment option on audi's so this could be A3,A4 ,A6 etc ?

however on any of the 4 cylinder models changing a turbo is quite straightforward and if you're happy to replace a cambelt then a turbo should pose no problems

the 6 and 8 cylinder engines are harder but not more technically difficult just more restricted access so more parts have to be removed and ideally use a 2 post lift to access from underneath
