    Replacement turbo for S3

    Ok guys i have a nasty feeling my turbo is on its way out (oil in chargepipes, hesitation in boost and lower fuel economy). Its not done bad as im on 112000 miles with a remap so im not to fussed anyway been looking around and found this
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    Is it worth it?
    Im not really after any more power than i have so dont really want to spend out on a Hybrid or BT
    Ive been Badger 5'd

    Can we break the magic 300?????? In a word Yes 314 BHP 249 lbft at Badger 5

    Get in touch with CR turbos or someone like that... recon K04's are around 300 exchange IIRC and a hybrid 500 exchange...

    Is it a genuine Borg warner turbo? I know the ad quotes Oe numbers, but does not mention Genuine Borg Warner either anywhere..

    Presuming Chinese knock off "new" K04

    cheap as chips tho.. for new.. cant believe its Borg Warner.
    Not sure I would spend on it without knowing its origin

    I do not trust Chinese knock offs

    TD offer more than one version... I dont think CR do, but could be wrong.
    the milder TD one I mapped on an S3 earlier this year.. and was underwhelmed by it.. at best 5% more airflow seen and it did'nt hold boost at top end ,just like K04's dont
    They do a billet comp wheel one which they claim is 300+bhp tho, so if you went that route that *should* make it faster, but I would also look to get an exhaust manifold which can flow it, else its just choking and high egts'

    I got my K03S from motors in motion (www.motorsinmotion.co.uk).

    They were about the same price as CR Turbos and second hand turbos on exchange come with a 3 month warranty.

    would it be wise to put forged rods in with that kind of setup to get a better map or would the mapp be much the same but with out the conferdence in the reliability?? just gauging what route to go down if any as to do hybrid mani rods and possibly injectors im looking at around 2k half way to big turbo?? cheers

    If u dont want to splash out, get it reconditioned, Turbo Technics done my TD05 off a impreza for around the 150 mark, that included pick up from my door and shipping back

    for hybrid i would do rods.. they deliver some high torque rapidly from the ones i have seen. high torque and all of a sudden spool is a recipe for broken rods imho
