    Re: KO4 soon...

    sounds like a hellofa whip. what software? keep us posted on progress. it's a pretty straigh4ward swap - i was going to say REPLACE YOUR CAT with a hf, but i see that's on the list.

    i did my turbo + exhaust and didn't do the cat. which, of course, blew up a month later. =)

    i'm giac and have to say it's still got a hesitataion / stutter / stumble on boost. cant' figure out why but curious to find out other's experience.
    nobody ever listened to me until they didn't know who i was.

    I heard the hammer files, etc had a hard time reaching past like 250-265 CHP?

    Dont think the K04-15 will even get close to that. Not sure why people think they are going to gain 100chp with a K04 vs a chipped K03 when the turbos are basicly the same size.

    It's refered to as a MAP sensor. In short, it reads the boost, if it exceeds the limit it puts the car into limp mode. Only DBW have them.

    Re: KO4 soon...

    right i have an MAF sensor, different than the MAP. i'm confused because it was said that "your getting hesitation b/c Im assuming your NDBW, and you dont have a boost flow sensor"

    i have giac software specified for my car [ndbw / maf] so i dont see how adding an MAP would resolve the hesitation issues?

    is there a retrofit i'm not aware of?

    Re: KO4 soon...

    I will clarify, with your car, the MAF is "guessing" what the boost is at, and what the fuel ration should be at depending upon how much air is coming in, what you step into in second for example, it will hesitate until it gets an accurate reading, I'll ask my buddy who runs a shop to give me all the terms to clear up everything, I cant spit it out right now...I'll post numbers when the install is done, and then again when I get the racetec and Milltek. at this point I am thinking that I will get the 100 oct performance, stock, and kill programs, hoping for 300 at the crank with the 100 oct. I could be wrong, its not like Ive done this before, I should peak at 23 psi and hold at 20, so we'll see.

    Re: KO4 soon...

    well that took long enough, I finally got my KO4 ordered, I can thank a certain hood company (with a non-JDM name) for the ginormous delay...in the meantime I got a milltek enhaust, and ordered my FMIC, so my supporting mods are in place, and the KO4 should be here soon with the install kit


    and I would like to thank Clay, he is increadably patient and a really nice guy...thanks man!!!

I HATE people like that, but I'll update with pics and a 1/4 mile time sometime next week...

    and yeah

    Re: KO4 soon...

    wheel horsepower is approximately 15-20% lower than crank, not sure on the exact value people us for the a4, someone will probably chime in.

    Re: KO4 soon...

    ok, so when I end up dynoing it, I'll just add 25% to the peak HP for BHP...I'll let you guys know, hopefully I'll dyno it sooner than later, but if not, I'll atleast post some 1/4 mile times and slips next week...

    Re: KO4 soon...

    Good luck.

    I was thinking if I did J31 it would be around 250HP at the crank... I have the same mods as you (essentially). So I'm thinking for you that's going to be more realistic as well.

    Let me know how you like the J31... I'm pretty sure that's what I'll do.

    J31 is also tuned for stock injectors and 5 bar. But plenty of people have found it to actually run better on 180 TT(317cc) injectors and an adjustable fpr. Just have to set it so that you end up with injectors that equal 33.19 lbs
