View Full Version : k04 software? (I searched!)

12-08-2007, 09:25 AM
I had no luck with the search, found mostly questions about j31/pc-16.

But if I upgrade to a k04, where can I get a retail chip? I might be misunderstanding this upgrade, still have reading to do.

I want to go with giac, so do I look for their regular k03 file, then upgrade to say pc-16, or does the k04 use a seperate file?

Any help would be appreciated, trying to get this done before the new year as my turbo sounds like a dentist drill :(

Yeah I looked at that, so what exactly do I need if I have all the mechanical parts? Lets say I wanted to eventually go for the pc-16.

It says "Upgrade" next to pc-16, is that upgrade from their standard chip or from stock?

My car is a 99 avant 1.8tqm manual btw.

thats from the standard chip.....call them up and see what they can do for you if you dont already have a chip.

I also have a question, I am wondering how long it takes for the stock KO3 Turbo on my 99 A4 Quattro (it has approx. 127,500 on it). Also, knowing that, is it even worth it to chip it, or should i just but the KO4 Upgrade and then get the chip for that?

Oh, my friends had gone out around 100,000 miles, and I just thought that seemed kind of low and am hoping that it does not happen to me!
