    Standard k04 turbo needed asap!!

    Yesterday after finally having time to drag the s3 out for a run out/check over for whats required for Oulton Park track day 12th feb the turbo let go so now I need another stock k04 turbo to put on for the trackday. Ive ripped theturbo off and took the sump off and found the oil pick up pipe/strainer in a gummed up way which is I guess why its s**t its self.

    When funds allow and the house is finished it will be getting a hybrid conversion but at the moment I just want another standard turbo to chuck on so I can go to Oulton Park next month,

    Does anyone have a spare they want to sell?!

    If there was oil pressure issues caused by the strainer, you would have got the oil pressure light. If that's not been seen, I doubt it's the cause sadly.

    i used to make the dies that they cast the KKK aluminum body from for this turbo its not fake it is a cheap chinese copy it will work but for How long? it does not state that it is a kkk just a K04 i would rather fancy my chances with a second hand one than one of these.



    Hope the people that took me DIE

    What is item number is it genuine KKK? Im wanting a used one rather than copy ideally or I will rebuild my knackered one ive got now.

    Ive heard a few nags about the copied ones on ebay but to be fair no failures.

    CR turbos will recon it for about 450 iirc and if its repairable or you could go stage 3 hybrid for about 650 so still cheaper than a new one

    That all that's need though for stage 3 ??
    I bought a new turbo several months ago now off eBay genuine one for 210 and got it looked over at a local specialist charged me 48 + vat as he said it was mint .. Lucky I guess but wouldn't go eBay cheapie my mate bought one and lasted 5 months on his lcr before the turbo literally shattered !!

    I'm not doing it but some people that read might think 650 = 340 bhp ( think that's stage 3 :-S )

    650 does not equal 340 bhp. Sadly.

    Realistically needed to hit 340 on a hybrid IMO: FMIC, 3" downpipe, decat/sports cat, WMI, High Flow K04 Exhaust Manifold, Hybrid turbo, custom stage 3 map, 3" turbo intake pipe, forged con rods.

    All of the above do not come cheap.... I know.
