If I had Bosch red top 310cc Injectors and an OEM 3.0bar FPR with the giac k04 pc-16 file on my k03, anyone how it would work?

Only reason i ask is that i can get a pc-16 loaded ecu cheaper than i can get the flash for a k03, then i would have the option to upgrade to a k04 down the road (If the k03 shits the bed again)...

just buy, look for a good deal for a k04 down the road and install it then. doesn't take long at all to change the fueling.

but i really dont think i'll ever go k04...

honestly the next time i replace this turbo its gonna be an elim... its just to much work to gain 20hp in a 3000lb car

Shank210;4142115']probably run uber lean

it would run lean? would bigger injectors = more fuel?

ah ha but i would be going from a 4bar down to a 3bar.. Ok im confused, why bigger injectors but smaller regulator?

But in all seriousness would it be safe and run decent?

eehh...whats the worst that could happen. logically, if it were to run good, tuners would have already done so instead of wasting money and effort.

i would say it would run like ass up top since the turbo would have to be screaming to supply the air the motor is demanding. I would skip.

well i could always give it a shot and if it runs like crap, resell it ...

haha you saw the pc16 in the classifieds too? seems tempting... just get the file and get a ko4. if you are worried about getting the tune for so cheap.. chances are you won't go elim

i think you just need to face the music your car will be slow until you buy the correct parts. Seems like you are always scheming to make your car faster in unorthodox ways.

who talked about detonation for 200? why not get a gt28 file on the k03? it's equally as dumb

It will run pretty rich. Alot of exhaust popping. The pc16 file is too agressive for the K03 IMO. Trying to hold 19psi might be too much for it. ^I agree, software is written for specific mods and why try and piece things together

well i already have a k03s, fmic, 3" tp, neuspeed exhaust, forge 007, n75 race and tip...

the thing is it will be slow even if i throw a k04 at it lol... thats why i want to just go gtrs, but for the price of the ecu i thought it would be worth a shot

i wont be happy until i run 12's again... however a 14sec car is alot more drivable than the current 16sec condition its in right now

i would just hold out to do the elim on your ride. they can be pieced together for a reasonable amount... i just dont think you will see great efficiency or power from this. being the ko3s is close to the ko4, it may increase your power, but not too much. as stated, if a tuner could have used the ko3s with the p16, i think they would have, no?

i would say, hold out completely...
