Anyone else read about neuspeeds super ko4?(ko4-015) I always thought they were conservitive but after reading about the super ko4 i am wrong. They are making 216hp to the wheels on there A4 quattro, and 265hp to the flywheel. I thought this was very impressive. I think its good that ko4 tuners are making kit to compete with the t 28, im pretty sure the t-28 makes around 270hp, pretty close.

The power underneath the curve will be vastly different between a k04 and a T28/Stage3. Yes the peak numbers can be similar (take for instance my J31 setup), but in reality, the car is nowhere near as fast as a "big turbo" setup.

Think of the k04 as an autox setup. Lots of low end torque to pull you through the corners. Think of a "big turbo" (T28, APR S3) as more of a "drag racing" setup. THe k04 simply cannot flow the amount of air up top like the bigger turbos can.
