Stay away from those POS'

Even their K04-15's are bootleg


Would you wear bootleg clothes? I doubt youd put an imitation turbo in your car for the same reason, only this will most likely 1) make you kick yourself in the ass 2) Go after a few hard miles or heating up 3) performance? Hah !


you know what they say man...... You get what you pay for

It isn't even a K03. Doesn't look like a true 3k turbo since it does not have the 3k in the compressor housing casting. Most likely a "knockoff" casting which screams SCAM.

Oh and look, Sport JDM is a registered trademark

Ebay sellers think people are stupid and whoever buys this product will prove them right

Just an FYI, even if it were a k04, it's definitely NOT a -23....this is a -23 http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/8793/ko4023vsk03s2xy.jpg

Nothing like the other one posted above. Even look at the blue tags, the real ones have 2 silver strips with vw/audi while the other one is all blue with no names on it at all.

Wow, interesting link.

Their K03 turbo can be upgraded to K04 spec without buying a K04 for an extra $100 - is this what i'm reading?

"This turbo can be upgraded to a K04 spec for additional $100

The K04 compressor wheel used in our upgrade is slightly larger than the stock compressor wheel in a K04-15. The turbine wheel in the stock 703J turbo is a little over 1 milimeter smaller than the K04-15 turbine wheel. The upgrade gives you K04-15 performance without the expense of purchasing a new K04.

This upgrade is good for up to 210hp. Power as quoted will only be achieved with modified ECU. The turbo comes with a full 12month/unlimited mile warranty (see our warranty page for more details)."

Anyways, good price on them.

No, its cost of the rebuild, plus $100 for K04

You have to buy the K03 for $475 then its $100 to upgrade it to K04 and another $95 to port and polish it. So your looking at $670 for ported and polished K04 turbo that will outflow a stock K04 that costs $750. I'm using this turbo with my Custom PC-16 setup and it pulls really strong at 26psi

So basicly it is just a SK04 which also used a K04 wheel out of the larger K04 used on the transvers engine. This was done by 2 other companies in the past but both had issues with the ballance of the hybrid. Hope these guys did it better, but looks like it since they have a warranty on it.

Thats one of the reasons I bought from them is because you get a 1 year/unlimited mile warrenty. If you trade in your K03 when you purchase you also recieve a discount

Thanks for the info, I was looking into the gpopshop k04 but wasn't sure if anyone around here is using it, but since you're saying you have it (exactly the way I want it P&P) then as long as you haven't had any problems with it i'll probably go this route.

Thanks [up]
