View Full Version : New a4 owner with some questions

07-17-2007, 12:08 PM
Alright, don't flame me here, i'm new...

I just bought a 97 a4 with a k04, but stock k03 software. it has a flowmaster exhaust, but it is muffler and back only. also, it has a 5.0bar FPR. what would be the most ideal (affordable + works well) exhaust? i can get my cats gutted in town for like $70 and VA doesn't have emissions tests. I've been looking at a GIAC chip, but i've not seen k04 specific ones without a k04 and all the add ons for a complete package. maybe there is a k04 upgrade package with injectors + chip? any advice would be appreciated. thanks guys

how are you sure it has a k04 on it?
I would confirm this first.

Then you can always buy a k04 software from the classifieds.

i bought it off these forums. how would i confirm that it is a k04 and not just a k03?

there is a little blue tag on the housing. you could probably see it with a miror or something.

alright, i'll look before i order any software. i only drove it and put money down on it today, i didn't have anyone to take me down to winston-salem so i could drive it home tonight, so i did what i could. i assume that when she tells me it's a k04, it is a k04, she said she bought it from a friend who never finished building the full k04 set up and she only put race springs on it and sold it.

who did you buy it from?
You can look at the turbo and it would have the model number on it.
