    GT28 Eliminator Turbo...

    Does anyone know anything about these?
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VW-Audi-S3-A3-TT-1-8T-98-05-Quattro-GT2871R-Turbo-Kit_W0QQitemZ130176928666QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Car sParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item130176928666& _trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1689|66%3A2|65 %3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

    Big turbo power but a straight swap for a K04 as the hot side has been doctored! Has anyone had one, knows someone that had one, heard about someone that had one, mums friend's boyfriends second cousin twice removed had one etc etc.

    Any info gratefully received and devoured!!

    This looks like a good bit of kit!

    Surely tho you would need a remap and a Manifold & DP at the very least??

    The main thing about the Elim's is they are a bolt one solution. The down pipe is restrictive on the A3/S3 anyway would deffo be worth a change. I assume the mani is good for over 300 bhp anyway so no need to chnge that.

    Its a good solution for the A4's as there are tuning files available off the shelf to suit them, i would bet its the same for the a3/s3

    A mate of mine blew up his engine on his s3 when he fitted an eliminator kit. Things ran too hot apparently, and he never got the 300bhp he was hoping for either.

    If you want close to 300, you can try a hybrid K04 turbo, which I think will give you about 290bhp.

    Backdraft would be the people to speak to about it. Give them a call.
