Dear Sir,
thank you for your interest in our products.
First of all, we don't produce any turbo that we call K03S. But I hope I can
answer your questions with the following explanations.

All the following turbos have the same installation dimensions and
thermodynamical performance. The differences are only in the actuator that
opens the turbine bypass valve:
K03-011 (5303 988 0011) 150 hp, 65 N actuator
K03-026 180 hp, 85 N actuator
K03-035 180 hp, 85 N actuator
K03-044 150 hp, 65 N actuator
K03-045 156 hp (Ibiza Cupra), 85 N actuator with 2 ports
K03-049 150 hp (Sharan/Alhambra), 65 N actuator
The 180 hp versions have an actuator with a higher opening force due to the
higher exhaust gas pressure (which is a consequence of the higher boost
pressure). Otherwise the valve would be pushed open by the exhaust gas
pressure.

The following turbos are a further development (since 2000) and have an
improved and slightly larger compressor while using the same turbine (still
with the same installation dimensions):
K03-052 180 hp, 85 N actuator
K03-053 150 hp, 85 N actuator
K03-058 150 hp/180 hp, 85 N actuator

Consequentially, putting a 180 hp turbo on a 150 hp engine will not bring
about any change in performance, but putting on a K03-052/053/058 instead of
the older versions will bring a slight improvement in engine efficiency.
Additionally, with re-mapping the ECU you can achieve about 215 hp without
danger of overspeeding the turbo. With the older turbos, 195 hp is the
limit.

With the K04 that's also commonly used (5304 950 0001) the power output
should not be more than 220 hp. That means, changing a K03-052/053/058
against a K04 does not make a lot of sense.

I hope that these details answer your questions. If you need more info, one
of our service distributors will be glad to help you. Their addresses are on
our website http://www.turbodriven.com.

so the K04 out of 225HP TT won't make me more then 220 on my 1.8T?

from what i have read basically the k04 is equal to or lesser than the potential of a k03s with up grades. does that help?

i am not really that educated on the k04, i am sure there are things to do to get to 250.
Pro-Imports Equalizer Turbo Upgrade



March 30, 2005

source: Pro-Imports Press Release


Pro-Imports Introduces the Equalizer K04-20 Turbo Upgrade for MKIV VWs!

Utilizing K04-20 series turbos from BorgWarner and using VAG factory parts combined with the highest quality custom parts, Pro-Imports is proud to announce the official release of our K04-20 Turbo Upgrade for the MKIV Volkswagen 1.8T Golf, Jetta, GTI and GLI!

The highlights of the Equalizer Upgrade include:

• K04-20 series Turbo
• Exhaust manifold
• Exhaust up-pipe
• Oil & Water lines
• Custom 2.5" Upper intercooler pipe
• Custom Samco silicone Turbo Inlet Hose
• 3" MAF
• Revo Technik Software

We also include Step 1 of our new Thermal Control System™ which blankets the exhaust manifold and wraps the custom upper intercooler pipe with state-of-the-art thermal material that drastically lowers under hood temperatures.

Designed with flexibility in mind, the kit can be used with most of the cold air intakes currently on the market (via our supplied silicone adaptor) or at your choice we can provide a factory replacement air-box that will accept the 3" MAF. And because the software is from Revo Technik, we can offer you control over the tuning via Revo’s SPS3 devices!

The Equalizer upgrade produces 280 horse power and 310 foot pounds of torque at the flywheel. And with the available options, this upgrade is capable of 300 wheel horse power. (For dyno sheets visit http://www.pro-imports.com/dyno.htm.)

The Equalizer Turbo Kit is $2799 for all MKIV Jetta's and Golf's. Contact us directly for installation estimates and package pricing.
As a special introductory offer, the first 10 kits we install will receive a free dyno run! And the first 10 Revo customers will receive a free dyno run and $100 off the price of the kit!

For more details go to http://www.pro-imports.com/k04kit.htm. If you have any questions send an e-mail to k0420@pro-imports.com or give us a call at the shop at 301-519-0908!
i actually posted this up before

a ko4-001 came of a diesel truck in europe...directly bolts onto our stock mani...

a k04-020 and k04-23 etc etc are just different completely...larger housings, different flange, it's the TT 225 turbo (k04-020)...so if you can find a totaled 225 and swap out mani and turbo and tip, maybe the DP will fit...most likely it will...then that is worth it...(FYI the RS4 and RS6 and S4 cars use these upgraded turbos to get massive power with great spool)

the k04-001 is a different story

you can find more info about the different k04 variants here: www.mjmturbos.com just don't buy from Jamie @ MJM if you want something of theirs, I can get it for you not from him...he is an idiot!!!

heres some info on APR's k04
APR Transverse K04 Kit

No dates were ever given and many said it would never happen, but APR is proud to release our K04 upgrade kit for the transversely mounted VW's. Our kit includes the K04 turbo, the compressor inlet O-ring, four exhaust studs, one manifold to turbo gasket, and one turbo to downturn gasket. This kit is a straightfoward turbo swap that makes a big difference in the power output of the car.

This kit makes solid gains in both horsepower and torque. With no other mods than an APR Turbo-Back Exhaust, the kit made 242hp/268lb-ft on 91 octane gas, and 245hp/275lb-ft on 93 octane gas. Although the exhaust is not required, it is highly recommended.

If you are currently an APR Stage I or II customer and purchase a K04 upgrade, you will receive all EMCS options for free. The software for this kit is also available separately for current APR Stage I or II customers for $199 or $699 for new customers.

i know a guy running a .48 a/r T3 on a 20v motor and he makes 250whp @ 20-something PSI. another guy with super 60 T3 gets the same, but at a lower PSI level.

considering the cost of KKK units, i'd have to say go with a T3. reliable, cheaper, quick spool and higher potential. one day i'll put a couple on the S4 :D

Ahhh, my favorite…. A sentence that has “couple” and “turbo” in the same sentence.
