Borg Warner has a waiting list a hundred miles long. Those that currently have them are charging upwards of $900 - $1,100.

Yup, supply (low) demand (high)... hence the pricing going up to the sky!

i got mine for $740 from AWE, but that was a replacement for a blown turbo. They gave me the wholesale cost because they wouldn't warranty the turbo.

would it be better just to order a kit?

Hassmeister

Depends who's kit?
AWE has specials at times and they are reputable.

DAMN!!! are you serious, $1000? anyone want to buy mine? lol. i do have a blown k04 turbo with shaft play and a bad turbo seal. if anyone wants it to rebuild, let me know.

I got mine last summer for $640 brand new. Does anyone have a source for parts to rebuilt a k03 with k04 internals?

My friend here in Australia has one for sale brand new. He was going to piece a K04 kit himself but has decided to go for a bigger turbo. I think he is asking about $1500Au

Pm me if your interested.

im thinkin gt28.... if ur gonna spend that kind of money......shittt might as well go t28 and be done with it.

IndieRockSteve
04-22-2005, 09:27 AM
well, yes, except the T28 kits are all in the $3000+ range and then labor.
of course, you could always rebuild the whole engine with "racing" parts, etc and put a T3 on it...

Dumb newb question....can u run a K04 alone without the software?
and if so how much horsepower u can get wit just the K04 turbo?

BranCKY3
05-24-2005, 04:17 PM
You will run lean since it makes more airflow. To take advantage of any power gain you need a program for it.

Chop4Life
05-24-2005, 04:38 PM
oh i see, then u do need a chip for it,
so it wont run lean. Thanks

I ran a K04 with std K03 programing for about 4 months.
Had the car checked with Vag com and on a dyno and mine didn't run lean. It hit boost like the K03 but held onto boost until redline. I noticed more torque with the K04

what year is ur car? maybe the cars
with 170 hp wont run leansince it has
vvt right?

AFOUR_PLAY

I have the 180Hp engine Euro spec. That could be why.
If you look at ECSTuning website it states there that you can run the K04 with std programing.

By the way, my picture wont show up. i am pretty sure im doing the HTML stuff properly. can anyone help me out?

BranCKY3
05-24-2005, 05:51 PM
I was being sarcastic. [:)] I'm sure someone will want it if you don't get it rebuilt yourself.

Eurotuned_A4
05-24-2005, 05:54 PM
yeah i know man. i was just saying it would be insane to give KO4 away for $25, whether it needs to be rebuilt or not. the only problem with it is that 1 fan blade is broken. other htan that its in good shape....i just dont know what to do to fix it, so im just going to sell it. i just gotta get around to it.
