Hey guys. I think the time has finally come for me to make one of these threads officially. After months of research, debate, and just plain wanting to get more out of my DD, I've decided to go with RAI's K0R-GT. I went with this route because the K0R is 1) hands down has more potential than other "mildly-mild turbo" upgrades, 2) direct bolt on without modifications, and 3) most importantly the K0R is significantly cheaper than others.

Since the original purchase of the car back in '07, I've always wanted to achieve around 300hp/tq to the wheels as my biggest and most important goal. Throughout the years of ownership I'd have to admit I've spent $$ on useless shit here and there, but Audizine has really helped me grow up and understand these cars better than I did, ever. I never took it to the next stage because I didn't think the time was right and that I was even ready.

I guess now I think I'm ready [:D]

haha since you asked so nicely
- the 300 was my DD. bone stock except suspension and wheels. If I still had it today I would've done so much with the 2JZ [:(]
- the 350 is now the lady's ride

not the best pic but you get the idea ;D

understandable. i bought one a year ago from KMD. when I misplaced it I bought an OEM one that was changed at about 60k miles. maybe i'll change it out with the timing belt service at 100k

Alright, now that you have your own thread, you gotta tell me, what the fuck happened with selling the car and buying it back?

haha alright. i was looking to sell the car early last year but NO ONE was willing to buy. In the end a close friend of mine jumped on it. they moved to Gallop, NM for residency and had the car a little under a year. basically out in Gallop (middle of no where) there were no shops that really specialized in German cars AT ALL. everything out there is literally Honda, Toyota, or Hyundai. I even had my friend come in for an oil change and the shops literally had no idea what to do. Long story short, they had the car for about 10k miles, but in the end bought a more family practical, maintence "free" car- CR-V. They then wanted to sell the A4 and I realized how much I missed my car. That's that.

I guess the real headache was re-buying everything I had originally sold haha. in the end I'm happy I got my car back. everything is back to normal and now I can go K0R :D

I know it's not necessary but better safe than sorry. I know some members had problems with rods snapping from k04's and what not. I just don't want to take that chance. Also since I'm planning on running Maestro i want to get the most out of the K0R. So right now still waiting on what IE deal is on the Tuscan line

03-01-2012, 08:57 PM
You should probably just get a k04 so your engine can explode and then you get to stand on the side of the highway watching all your hopes and dreams spill out of the car all over the highway, its extremely exhilarating!

I understand but if your gunna spend the money to get pistons and rods its really not much more to go with a GT series turbo and really make use of it, just saying. And since you want to get maestro, how much more power could you possibly wind out of that K0R?

And no wayyyyyyyyy are tuscan rods necessary lol they say their H-Beams are good for 700hp

Those Tuscan rods are WAY more than what you need and are probably in the 600+ range.. If I wetre you i'd either go IE drop in rods which are 144x19 or go rod & piston but the drop ins will be perfect for your build IMO...


I'd sell ya my drop in rods but I gave them to Evan..

At the time I was not planning to go over 450whp but since it never made it im now rebuilding the motor and going to a larger piston as well and will hope to make somewhere in the neighborhood of 550whp+ but we will see how that turns out...Lol

Joe, I want to spend a good amount of money on my car but again I don't know if I want to do air ride or K0r. I rather do Air since I do shows more than anything, there is really no open road here in NJ that people haven't died on that cops don't monitor for street racing, so in my opinion going fast is kind of pointless.

Hehe, thanks... If it was not being rebuilt/bored/etc etc im positive it could easily go for another 80k at minimum!

As long as your motor is not having oil consumption issues theres no need for pistons, IE drop in rods would be perfect to ensure some safety if going with an agressive tune.

Are you going the 9.2:1 or the 10.5:1? I know this may sound stupid, but are you able to hone the cylinders in place, or are you pulling the engine out. Again, I know it sounds funny, but I fantasize about being able to bore out enough for slightly larger pistons without having to pull the whole damn thing out.

They only come in 9.2:1 if you want them in stock CR the price jump to well over 1k for a custom set of pistons.. I believe you can hone the block while in the car but you can't bore the cylinders while it is in the car (I guess you could but QC is severely dimished).. My complete motor is being pulled as im also dowel pinning the crank timing gear and having extensive head work done...

i believe boulder county has some very strict emissions!

in VA, we have stickers that go on the windshield and our registration (plate stickers) are separate. in CO we use the plate stickers to show proof of emissions as well because u need to show emissions in order to re-register your car, if i'm not mistaken. emissions was up in august... haven't been bugged about it yet! I also don't run a front plate

ha. well being in Denver i run HFC and now front plate too. Podi "skid plate" FT..W? better off than $75 no front plate tickets. I've had about 5 of those so far and when they were $25 a pop, I racked up maybe 20-30?

driving around today went WOT on the highway and immediately MIL came on. Checked with my REV app and sure enough got a P2293 code "Fuel Pressure Regulator 2 Performance." From what I understand it could be low fuel pressure, cam follower or thrust sensor. So far i cleared the code and will check if it comes back on later tonight.

In the meantime, my HPFP/PRV status just changed to "shipped" :D so i guess i could wait a few days to change the PRV/HPFP and cam follower all at once.

out of warranty, before they started doing the recall on it i got them to replace it all. was about 2 months before everyone started doing it, but i found out that you need a CEL in order to have the service performed... mine didn't because it was pre-recall. they tried to say that to me and i was like... i'll be there in 5. this is obviously a factory defect so i'm not taking no for an answer... by the time i got tot he dealership 10 minutes later he was like its all good we'll cover it, lol

It's just my opinion of course, but I see the funds for a BBK better spent else where. If it's purly the looks you're going for, then go for it. But performance wise, I think it's over kill for daily driving. I don't see the need for a BBK unless you are quite often tracking your car. That said, they do like nice!

Sounds about right to me. The guys at redline speed worx told me it took one of their friends 6 months until his car was running right. That's what turned me off about maestro. Now if someone from rai had a maestro tune setup saved that ppl use all the time, then I would def. love to have that right now.

the only reason it takes 30 files is because they are starting from a map for a completely different turbo, i.e. stock or k04.

once they have the tune like Operator is saying, for one KOR, they will ship that as the base file with the KOR and then make adjustments from there, i.e. way less files

K04 = completely different turbo than KOR. That is probably why the KOR runs so crappy with an APR K04 tune?

I love how this rumor has become truth in the AZ community with a zero threshold for evidence. I am really glad the AZ community is not design pharmaceuticals or airbags!! "Ya Jim, that looks fine, just duct tape it on the wing, it will be fine. What, you want proof, nah, not really needed in these here parts."

I think a better way of saying it is MAESTRO has only been around a few years, and only recently being applied to the B7 (i.e., VERY VERY young technology) with one dude in Canada trying to field all the tunes for multiple platforms.

that's not accurate from what i hear from RAI they are in possession of the tunes and ship them out with Maestro. and yes the KOR and K04 are "completely different" in the sense that the same tune is not optimized for both. and "i.e." means "for example".

my point which you missed is that going from a tune for the wrong turbo, since there are no ots tunes for the KOR, is going to take a few revisions and maybe 30 if you're going from stock. but every KOR after that will go from the 30th revision and maybe only need a few and reach a final of rev 34 even though they've only seen 4 revisions because the hardware is similar between a KOR and a KOR so less revisions of the tune will be needed than say if we were going from FOR EXAMPLE stock or ko4 to KOR...

TIA

ericpaulyoung
03-14-2012, 01:45 PM
No tune is optimized until you put it on the specific car regardless of whether or not the exact same turbo is used. You slap a KOR on steve's car and tune it, and the optimal tune for biff's car with the exact same KOR will be different. This is no basis for saying that Steve's KOR is "completely different" from Biff's KOR. But that is the logic you are putting down, which is confusing to the scientific minded.

We need to get the "real engineer" in here to straighten us up. Where is the quality guy working at an injector vendor at? He might have some friends that work in the quality department at Newport News that can tell us about engineering submarines.

i feel like you're ignoring what i'm saying because you want to argue about the KOR vs KO4 but i have no interest in that nor did i say anything directly relating to that (i guess it depends how u take it but i'm not trying to argue with you). yes going from KOR to KOR isn't going to be optimized. that's why i said maybe 4 revisions. it is going to take less revisions than going KO4 to KOR. because they are less similar than a KOR to KOR

ericpaulyoung
03-14-2012, 02:07 PM
because they are less similar than a KOR to KOR

Nope, now we agree. Given all the previous thread arguments and complete lack of proof, I just go cross-eyed at comments like "completely different", but "less similar" is a good description and I agree that the tune evolution will be minimal.

I understand exactly what you're saying AJ (yeh, I just did that). "IF" I went with the base 2.0T file that Eurodyne has for my car, it may well take 10+ revisions to tweak it. Why, well the base 2.0t has injectors that flow less, a HPFP, that flows less, a exhaust system that flows less, a PRV, that isn't optimal, a smaller less flow K03, no w/m, less effecient IC's, a different intake, etc, etc, etc....... While getting the base K0R tune from Ray gets me a tune that takes into account over half those monds, and allows me to start off closer to an optimal tune. You broke it down well AJ, and I was tracking you!

I was tackling him, but for a different reason. The interpretation that you just did is exactly correct and the "real" reason that the tuning is easier for the base map.

...Take it from a real engineer...

Works for a big fuel injection place, and he crashed a couple of threads saying how he deserves respect for working at a place that does a lot of diesel engine business and how he is a real engineer, but turns out he works in the quality department. Just to be sure I wasn't being a dick, I asked him if he was a "real engineer" before going into quality, as a lot of the best quality guys that I work with indeed were "real" engineers for many years before hopping into that side of the business, but well he never answered.

oh by the way I called my guy today about installing rods/pistons. He told me it wasn't necessary to pull the motor completely, just having it suspended was probably enough. He quoted me about 16.5 hours so far, which totals about $1800 before tax. He also told me while they have everything apart they will clean up the carbon, install injectors and turbo at no extra cost. If everything comes out as planned i should be looking at about $2k. :D

well this is embarrassing. I really took your "advice" and went back to the shop to take a look at the pistons/rods I dropped off. Turns out you were right and I was completely in the wrong. The drop in rods I purchased are stock dimensions and like you said, won't work with the JE pistons. It must've slipped my mind somewhere that the rods I purchased were NOT 144x20mm rods.

^^ nice. might as well then haha.

Little update:

Stopped by the shop to pick up the old turbo. Front end completely removed, engine is on a lift, head coming off as we speak. 1st time i got a chance to look at the turbos side by side. the impeller size difference is crazy! I can honestly say I'm extremely excited for the K0R [:D]

once the head is off they'll start the complete carbon clean. then rods, injectors, plugs. and finally the timing belt kit, WP, thermostat. also removed the Forge DV to go with OEM upgraded piston DV. then we're good to go with Maestro.

Still looking for a rear set of shocks and tomorrow shipping back the K03 to RAI :D

p.s. Forge DV up for sale. any takers?

AudiTFSI3o3
04-16-2012, 12:55 PM
yo guys! got the car back today ;D I've decided to give it about a 300 mile break in period just because. i know break in isn't really necessary since all i replaced was rods but can't be too safe now.

first impressions:
1) exhausts sounds significantly louder than it was before - due to the Techtonics down pipe. In my opinion the OBX exhaust with stock cat was probably 2/10 in sound. With the addition of the HFC I'd say it went to 3/10. Now with the down pipe I'd say its at least 3.5/10. Still nothing compared to AWE which was probably 10/10 haha.
2) turbo spools so much quicker than that darn K03. I gotta make some sound clips :D
3) had the rear suspension replaced with Koni sport shocks. Love the ride
4) also had the block carbon cleaned - feels like a completely new engine!

Since the battery was removed for some time, the ECU was reset back to stock program. I didn't get a chance to switch back to APR 91 until I pulled up in my driveway. I practically have another 300 miles until i can:
1) log and send my base file back to Eurodyne
2) Do some dyno runs in stock, 91 programs
3) Flash the ECU w/ Eurodyne and
4) Load Ray's base file for the K0R
5) GO CRAZY [evilsmile]

Haha thanks Jim. My goal from the beginning of this build was to get 300whp/300wtq. Once I start tuning I'll decide if i need to run meth or not to reach my goal.

haha I can't tell you for sure how it is yet. I've been taking it easy on APR Stage 2. Once I feel comfortable I'll probably send my base file to Eurodyne and do some dyno runs on APR. Once that's all ironed out I'll go ahead and mess with the Maestro tune.

Imo, 300/300 is fairly low aspirations, considering you are doing rods. I would be totally happy with 300 whp, but I think you can tweak that torque up higher. 325-350wtq would be sweet!

Pretty much overkill. But, hey atleast its going to be solid and if you ever change turbos you are then ready for the next step. I so no reason why the kor with proper tuning and w/m well not get 350 atleast.

I know they're not necessary. its more "peace of mind." even after I realized I ordered the wrong pistons, rods will do just fine for the K0R.

Maybe at the crank, but RAI hit 300awhp and 330awtq (or whatever it was) pushing very high boost numbers. Although I do think they did it without w/m, but not too sure about that. I am definitely curious to see what everyone's setup ends up pushing.

I completely agree. 350 crank may be more realistic with the K0R than 350 to the wheels. Especially with our elevation at 5280ft. Not sure what elevation is up in WY but i'm sure glad I'm not in Springs haha

alright guys. ran into a little problem. I haven't pushed it to WOT yet until about 20 minutes ago on the highway. I was cruising @ 70mph in 6th when I downshifted to 4th to pass a truck. Went up to about 4500-5000 RPM and nothing. Literally nothing happened. It felt like a fuel cut but everything I've replaced so far is HPFP, follower, PRV, injectors. My guess is the LPFP, anyone else think the same thing?

No CEL, nothing. Shifted back to 6th and it was fine (as in no WOT)

can you not even read the ecu file to flash the eurodyne in? Does it even connect to ecu and try to start reading then fail? or nothing at all?

These A4's are finicky for some reason in my experience, some i have flashed flawlessly, some have just not worked at all, regardless of some tricks ive tried, had to take the ecu to the bench :/

unplugging the cluster helps sometimes, make sure the battery is hooked up to a trickle charge to keep a constant voltage of at least 12.6 volts, just incase they tell you not to do this with maestro, its good practice.

The power tap cable doesn't read at all. On the power tap cable itself there are 2 colored LEDs. One is green when connected to USB port of a PC and the other I believe is Red once it connects with the OBD port. I've only gotten the Green LED to light up once connected to the PC, but once it's connected to the OBD port, nothing. Tried to "Read ECU" and every time a message would pop up saying "Cannot Find Cable...Exiting" and the damn program would just close.

I've tried messing around with the COM Port Settings (as you would with VagCom) and still nothing. Funny thing, I plugged in my VagCom eBay cable and it seemed to work with Maestro but only for a bit. With the ebay cable plugged in, Maestro would read the cable but is "unable to find ID" compared to the power tap cable that "Cannot find cable" at all. My guess is theres something defective about the cable but have heard horror stories about Eurodyne basically making you pay for a new cable if needed one.

My other option is maybe Maestro won't run with Windows 7 and only the older versions so I will be installing Windows XP later today to let you guys know. ATM I have Windows 7 and even installed .NET Framework as required in the manual. nothing. we'll see

I have heard many stories on the vortex about it taking WAY TOO LONG for him to respond, and usually it is with the excuse that he is busy. But if he is too busy to properly support his product, he shouldn't sell that many.

It'll probably be Monday, before I can let you know how my experience goes. I'll keep you informed. But my guess is you'll have it figured out before then.

The power tap cable doesn't read at all. On the power tap cable itself there are 2 colored LEDs. One is green when connected to USB port of a PC and the other I believe is Red once it connects with the OBD port. I've only gotten the Green LED to light up once connected to the PC, but once it's connected to the OBD port, nothing. Tried to "Read ECU" and every time a message would pop up saying "Cannot Find Cable...Exiting" and the damn program would just close.

I've tried messing around with the COM Port Settings (as you would with VagCom) and still nothing. Funny thing, I plugged in my VagCom eBay cable and it seemed to work with Maestro but only for a bit. With the ebay cable plugged in, Maestro would read the cable but is "unable to find ID" compared to the power tap cable that "Cannot find cable" at all. My guess is theres something defective about the cable but have heard horror stories about Eurodyne basically making you pay for a new cable if needed one.

My other option is maybe Maestro won't run with Windows 7 and only the older versions so I will be installing Windows XP later today to let you guys know. ATM I have Windows 7 and even installed .NET Framework as required in the manual. nothing. we'll see


does tapp cable show up in device manager? make sure you run maestro as administrator too(win7) If its net framework it should be win7 compatible, if its 3.5 or above i dont have issues here at work with either or(32 or 64bit)

not sure what else, if you really need to get this done, PM me i can remote desktop with you and take a look, ive got a ton of experience with this stuff

yeah it shows up in the device manager. that's the only way I could change the COM port settings. I've tried running it as Admin and the compatibility is enabled. the cable just wasn't reading. I'll let you know by later today man thanks a lot for the offer!

Seth, I've tried both ACC modes as well with the ignition on. The instructions from Eurodyne call for the ignition to be on in order for the cable to read. still nothing

is the car battery hooked up to the charging caddy?

no, is it necessary? the ignition will be on so I don't think there would be a problem with voltage

alright guys. Downloaded Vista and again re installed Maestro/Eurodyne and what do you know the cable cannot be found again [headbang]. Downloaded all updated drivers, .NET framework, etc. with no success. Eurodyne seems to go to shit when it comes to communicating through email so tomorrow I'm giving them a call. I really think I have a faulty cable now and they best not charge me for a new cable. this is seriously frustrating the shit outta me!

on another note I wonder if my engine code BWT has anything to do with it. If you guys check on the Eurodyne site, Maestro/Powertap says it supports all Audi models BPY codes. I asked them before I purchased if BWT would work and they said yes so lets see.

i was going to suggest using an install of XP and testing it out. vista was never touted for its stability, that's for sure...

Called Eurodyne today and not too much new info, just an interesting experience. Spoke to some guy (never got his name) and told him about my situation as well as why they haven't been replying to my emails. Instead of helping my out right then and there on the phone, he insisted that I re-email him my problem. WTF? he couldn't even help me out on the spot. instead he had me email him exactly what I told him on the phone. Well, seems like I'll be waiting another week or so to hear back from them. I might stop by Apikol.

Pretty good news guys. After re-emailing Eurodyne they were able to help me diagnose everything and it all went smoothly. Cable works fine now.

Dave, I'm now getting what you ran into since we last spoke about on the phone. I can't get a full ECU read because of my existing APR flash. I sent Chris all my ECU information so hopefully by tomorrow he can let me know how override APR or something so I can get this thing cracking. I've never been so excited to get this shit rolling haha.

All that's left is contacting Ray for a base file and we're good to go.

Damn i thought getting al the files together would be the easiest pieces, audi303 did it matter what windows version you were running to get it to wrk now? Im home after getting my wisdom teeth out and feel like squandering money, i just wanna know that the tune/files situation is all set up as i have APR as well.

I don't think the version matters at this point since Operator is running XP (i believe) and I'm running Vista. If you run into cable reading problems Eurodyne will send you a program to configure your cable and you should be good to go.

In all honesty, Eurodyne's customer service is shit. For a company that's known for their own work especially with Maestro they should at least back their products 100%. not half assed and only whenever they're free you know?

BTW theres an update for the program that came out yesterday did you update?
