So, I'm looking for a factory K04 when I come across this auction on ebay. Has anyone ever bought one of these from RELENTLESS TUNING? He mentions audizine, so I just wanted some feedback. http://www.ebay.com/itm/270699571430?ssPageName=STRK:MEBOFFX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1432.l2649
Thanks

Same guys who sell the SSAutoChrome catback.

My guess based on that price, the turbo is of Chinese origin.

Also notice, he didn't answered the warranty question.

It says "Just get a nice tune , no flash or PCM upgrade needed." Isn't a tune a flash?

NOTHING on ebay really has a warranty. Maybe for a week or two but after that good luck on that warranty.

contact naudlee on here maybe he will shed some light. It may actually not be bad as there is some crap going on in the B5 S4 section where some chinese turbos are good.

A quick search and I found this.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/96-03-audi-a4-1-8t-98-03-passat-upgrade-k04-turbo-charger-300hp-bolt-on-/280920368765?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item416828a67d&vxp=mtr

1 year warranty (must be installed by certified ASE mechanic)

And if they offer the warranty, eBay is supposed to stand behind it.

The only way you get a warranty from FCP control arms is if they are installed by an ASE certified tech

Doesn't some of the chinese turbos and other turbos on ebay vary in size when it comes to the inducer and exducer? What's factory k04 specs?

What the fuck is the difference? 10 chp? Anyway you put it an eBay k04 is horseshit. If your not willing to spend the money on a genuine both Warner than put the pos eBay shit in and start a thread when that fails. Do we really have to go through this discussion weekly?

some one just installed that turbo and mani and the turbo died in a few k miles...


not sure if he had a tune or stock ecu.

you would have a better shot at it with stock software and not beating the piss out of it... but its gonna die fast i think

i really looked into it about yr ago... and was tempted. but didnt.. i fought the evil power of cheap indulgence and am holding out for something else. lol

Just go with Frankenturbo or find a used k03 or k04. I feel like our country should be named "The United States of Made in China".

If anyone buys these and they blow up or has a set thats blown up laying around let me know. I may be interested. I almost went down the same route.

I ran one, worked well! boosted nicely. made 22psi and pulled great. I thought I had a problem with it but it turned out being an exhaust leak. I would get another one!!

I am not relentless tuning. I'm a guy with some parts that arent bad! LOL.....I had it for while, not exactly sure of the time frame.....it made its way onto my wagon and its still going as we speak

the turbo has been run in a couple different setups for testing. when I first got it I ran it stock tune. then I went stage 1 APR tune then I took it out, then I put it on my wagon with a pc16 file and all other mods needed for the pc16......now, I'm in a toss up on if I get another one and run another pc16 file setup in my A4 or if I go bigger.
