    Mine was so bad that when i got it I took it to ABT near me to test drive it and they said there was nothing wrong with that lol, so i just assumed it was heavy and slow

    Its Revo, assume its stage 1, so when I get it back im going to get it upgraded to make benefit of the Hybrid (albeit small)

    Worth doing to make use of the kit you've got. I'd make sure there isn't anything wrong with it mate to be honest, REVO maps are notoriously aggressive, and as a general rule feel quite powerful, so I'm surprised to hear you say it's gutless.

    cams may help, BUT, they push the power up the rev band, and given the k0x turbos dont flow much at high revs, you are unlikely to realise any flow gains when the compressor/turbine are out of puff

    i recon that an IHI kit (either VF34 or VF22) is probably the best way to go if you want a good 300hp. it might involve a bit (alot) more work than installing a hybrid K04 but at the end of the day you wont have the turbo at its limit all the time and it will probably be more reliable than a hybrid...
