Ok I wanna know if Its just me.... I Have a 2000 1.8 I ran 2 guys on different occations who have K04's in their cars. It was the same out come both runs They would pull on my 3rd but only about 1/2 a car, by the time I shift 4th Im pulling them back in and passing them..... Some1 tell me how is this possible if the K04 is an upgrade to a k03....[confused] [confused]


Mods to my car... Intake, APR 93oct, Front mount, 3" test pipe and DP to 2.5" exhaust..

i dunno. If someone goes k04 they should go with a PC-16 or j31 or i just don't see any reason for upgrading. If they have either of those there's no way you should be catching them. Maybe....... if their clutch is toast and they are slipping you might win, but otherwise you should loose.

What year cars did the other 2 have? The 2000 has larger injectors and the upgraded K03s(but with 3mm shaft).

It all depends on the tuning they had for the K04's. Take your 2000, if you drop a J31 chip in with fmic and high flow exhaust you will end up pulling on their cars and you guys will all have K04's. This is because the J31 runs the highest boost possible out of a K04 which is 25-28+psi.

1 guy has a 98 i think... (only reason I say 98 is he has a single din radio)
the other guy says his is a 2000... asmy 1st post says I jus wonder how is it possible that Im running a car with a K04 and I have a K03....

I doubt my FMIC is doing that much, only thing I can say the FMIC is doing for me is not getting heat soaked.....
