    Copy K04 off ebay/china? Have a read inside............. Beware

    Reposted off my Badger5 Facebook page:

    A thing to note from an AGU MK4 K04 golf which came in today for checking things out.. running issues, boost spike etc.. There were assorted pipe plumbing errors, (n75 plumbed wrong etc) but once rectified, and actuator crack pressure check to be 8psi, and actuator only dyno run was tentatively done (N75 electrically disconnected)... As soon as it started to spool and got over 3500rpm the boost would rocket up 20+... Lifted as it did this as it started to misfire. N75 faulty perhaps.. Direct plumbed charge pipe to actuator, re-ran, same thing.. Hmmmm. Something fishy going on here. Allowed it to cool of, undid actuator from the turbos wastegate, and felt for smooth free travel.. Not great TBH, and felt like it would hang up when trying to close.. Problem inside the turbos wastegate/hotside. To try and make it safe, we lockwired the wastegate wide open.... re-ran on dyno and exact same thing, 3.5k it would sky rocket boost. Boost Creep from hell. Turbo is a Chinese Copy K04... and if like the relentless one I saw of samb, its wastegate hole was tiny, which is whats causing this uber creep. Beware of shyte chinese copy k04's I suggest.. You may end up with the same issue of stupid boost and zero control of it. Too small a wastegate hole, not enough exhaust gas can be bypassed past the turbine and it runs away with boost. Boost Creep. Beware folks. Dont let this happen to you

    sight unseen, the quality cannot be determined. Aside from the stupid small wg apature, it may be "ok"
    Dan will be seeing it no doubt shortly to magic it to life properly tho.

    I take it this was mel's car?,thank's for spending time and care on this bill.she has just bought the car,i had alook at it and drove it when she got it,and advised her not to drive it,thanks to the boost gauge,the person she bought it from had'nt answered his phone,and lives 4 hour's away,so she has'nt had the best of luck,and can't take it back,her lesson to learn,there was'nt a dump valve on there,just broom end's and cut pipe's everywhere,thanks for the info,will speak to dan (black widow turbo's) this week and get something sorted turbo wise,then mayby sort the rest of this minefeild.do feel sorry for her,lucky this did'nt melt.

    As of yet I don't know how to rate them, I bought sans old k04 hybrid with the sole intention of building it properly, ie rs6 turbine, large bearing kit . And seeing how it goes.

    Only other eBay turbo I've seen is the one I got for Dave but the was going on existing known to work( non boost creep) eliminator housing. But it looks good from initial inspection , but it'll still be balanced and rebuilt with known quality bearings etc.

    just buying a Chinese tubby and fitting it blind is a huge risk, xs power are selling their hybrids for £450 which for an badly spec'd turbo isn't worth the money especially when turbine housing needs porting and we don't know how long the bearings may or may not last.

    I think what I paid Sam for the hybrid is about the right price :/) £50!

    they would be ok as cheap as possible for comp housings and chra cores to replace I guess.. If BW parts are tricky to source
    I would maybe consider chinese hotside if the wastegate penny bush was tack welded into position as the one I had here failed and slid up and down costing a whole bunch of time/hassle..

    it was mapped for k04 once i think, but my guess is the original died and this ebay thing replaced it and will have been wrong ever since

    I've just looked at a copy turbo. Main bearing was a single feed but designed on a dual feed but without the dual feed! How or why this was designed I have no idea. But needless to say the journal was scored and heat scorched from lack of oil where it counts!

    So do you think this would be ok to bore out to the correct size,or best to change turbo for gen unit?,ive never seen or came across this before.

    It looks like from the picture that the bush in the waste gate is loose and the waste gate won't shut properly.

    Even if the turbine housing is ported, waste gate bush welded I'd still raise questions over the internals quality....

    you might be better off finding a second hand unit... It probably is cost prohibitive to fix that one...

    If you want to send me the unit, and are happy , i'm happy to take a look and rebuild it, balance and replace bearings, port the housing and weld up the waste gate bush. I can't guarantee it'll be like a genuine one but I'd do it at cost price to see if we can salvage something from what you have and for future units.. If its toast then I won't bother..

    questionable internals given its source of supply is unknown but likely far east (CN)
    I have a chinese sourced hotside here which was on a CR k04 hybrid, which failed on the same sleeve. I had ported it previously so that was ok after opening it up, but as Dan says, the internals vs cost of replacing with a rebuilt/new one would probably be better.

    The sleeve could possibly be drifted back into place to centre the wg penny.. and welded into position.
    The small apature could also be ported out to a size which wont create the creep we saw.
    The internals, would remain *unknown* however.

    Its been on this long.. and must have been overboosting since install and survived which is a +ve I guess, whilst remaining an *unknown*

    Decisions, decisions..
    This is the one I suffered, which turned out to be CN hotside not genuine BW, from CR (danes S3)

    Speak to Alex @ AKS Tuning.. His T25 based kit (not dissimilar to backdrafts) allows for internal gated T25 framed unit.. If thats what you're looking for.

    Power Goal?
    Done rods yet?

    depends on the turbo chosen dude.. T25 framed is its limitation imho, so if power aims are sub 400bhp levels its *possible*
