    Hybrid K04


    I see reference occasionally to a hybrid K04 turbo. Is this different to the standard S3 turbo? (mine is a BAM)

    If so, then how is it different and are there advantages?

    I remember my 1.8T sport A3 had a K03 hybrid which I think I was told had part forma K03 and K04? Or was this just waffle?

    yeh your pretty much there.

    A Hybrid is where someone takes the standard turbo, and machines out the housings and installs bigger wheels. The term is very vauge and doesnt tell you much about the capabilities of the resulting product though, because there are many different internal parts that can be used in varying combinations.

    The term "K04" is also very vauge as it doesnt refer to one specific turbo or wheel size, more to a family of products. On this forum, references to "hybrid K04" will typically refer to the S3 turbocharger, which has then been modified to fit larger internals.
