    Question What turbo should I use for 350 - 400hp target?

    Still getting parts for my little S3 8l project car, and I am still undecided what turbo should I get for 350 - 400hp ?

    I have read a lot about hybrid K04 but it can't push more than 300 - 320hp, I don't want to change all the pipes and everything, is there any bolt-on solution? Is the K04 from 2.0TFSI capable of producing 350hp?

    Any ideas?

    No such thing as a 'bolt on' 400hp turbo dude... anything beyond the K04 requires custom work of some description.... off the shelf bolt on mods don't support power levels much beyond std K04's let alone larger framed turbo's...

    So called big turbo 'kits' are mostly rubbish... all the ons I have seen use crap water and oil lines and supply really cheap hardware... plus don't contain all the supporting stuff needed for this power level

    There are a few big turbo threads on here (mine included) that are worth a read to get you up to speed with what to expect

    Is there any point in getting a stroker kit? Really taking it into consideration since I still have to change the internal parts of the engine.

    Thanks for your support!

    Yes... going stroker was one of the best things I did on my build... makes loads of difference to off boost driveability and helps spool too...

    Ermm... I guess the integrated engineering ones... I just bought a crank from TPS, IE drilled rods and CP pistons... biggest issue with the IE one is its shipped from the states and the crank is massively heavy... not sure how this affects the postage costs... might be cheaper to get a crank from TPS (around £550 ish iirc) and get the rest of the bits from IE...

    If you want to get the stuff from the UK then Bill at Badger5 can supply the rods, pistons and bearings etc

    Sorry haven't really been all that helpful at all

    In all seriousness if you are 100% certain you haven't got any incline you'll want more at a later date I'd go TFSI turbo setup like prawn

    But if there's the slightest bit of doubt I'd get something else that'll either leave headroom for more or allow a turbo swap out like a T3 or v-band setup of some description then can always upgrade easier at a later date and save a fortune in the long run

    Wish I hadn't have kidded myself in the first place and gone all out or at least a gt28 in a swappable framework so the rest of the hardware would have remained each time
