    Turbo whirl gotten louder!

    today i noticed my turbo is whirling very loud!!! it has done a wopping 138k on this turbo! and was wondering what kind of mileage a normal turbo does!
    also is the k03s a straight swap? if so do i need to modify the engine to handle extra power?

    Well you will need to map it to get the best from it, Just bolting on a turbo will do nothing for you.

    Back to you Bill, was reading between the lines of your answer,lol

    haha very confused!haha yes no?

    yer i gathered you would have to map it! so it doesnt make any differennce if you dont get it custom mapped? what about just a revo map ? would that make any difference?

    if the car was to be remapped after the k03s is fitted... it would probably be a map aimed at a car usualy fitted with the k03s such as an aniversary golf or a skoda octavia vrs...
    by doin this you would be getting a great upgrade

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    To clear up Badger Bill's exceptionally concise answer for you lol

    also is the k03s a straight swap?

    Yes.

    if so do i need to modify the engine to handle extra power?

    No.

    Getting it mapped would unlock the extra power afforded by a KO3s though.

    At least that's my understanding. Hope this helps ^_^

    if you have revo now, then dialing it with an sps select unit and logging may get more out of it.. usually revo code asks for more than possible from a k03 anyhows, so the k03s should hang in there longer...
    OR if you dont already have revo, then consider a map done for k03s on your motor from the likes of custom code etc
