At only 40,000 miles!!!! Its a 01' 1.8t tip, and my question is how much would it cost in extra parts to go k04? Right now is the best time to the upgrade, so I just figured to see if it could be done for relatively cheap. Would I need bigger injectors? I know I would need a tune, and a upgraded DV. So just let me know what the swap actually takes.

Thanks

injectors, depends on what tune you go with. The GIAC tune uses the same injectors, and uses a 5 bar FPR. The Unitronic tune that I have requires bigger injetors but uses my stock 4 bar FPR. I did the same thing when I blew my turbo, went K04. If I was going to do it again. I wouldnt have wasted my money on this puny K04 setup. I would have just stuck with the K03, or at least went to an eliminator setup.

Most K04 tunes also require a bigger exhaust, FMIC, and you'll also need to get a silicone TIP. All the money you spend really isnt worth it for the small amount of HP you get.

Do the Frankenturbo setup. $1100 gets you a 270-280 HP hybrid K04, high flow manifold, Larger inlet pipe and a solid diverter valve. Check the dyno in the Frankenturbo thread, I think you'll be impressed.

isnt the frankentrubo a hybrid K04?

Yep, it uses a new gen BW compressor wheel. They're way way more efficient than the old straight blade design. The numbers that it put out on Cdn20valve's dyno on pump was exactly the same as what ATP was showing for their GT2X on pump.

Yeah, Slappy's a bit of a strange duck. Seems to make a good turbo though. I've been following the development since the early prototypes. He's done a really good job of being thorough and empirical in his testing. He hit some snags with the first gen ones, went back to the drawing board and did things right. More than I can say for some manufacturers, cough **Buhen**
