    oil pump fixed......turbo broken !

    Well, my oil pressure problem has been cured with a new oil pump , but the low oil pressure seems to have killed the bearings in the turbo.

    Where's the best place for a good used/reconditioned K03 charger ?

    or

    Is this an ideal opportunity for a turbo upgrade ?

    where's the best place to source a replacement turbo ?

    what difference would a K04 make over the standard K03 ?

    They look the same from the outside but the internals are different.

    The K04 is kind of bored out and has more aggressive turbines inside.

    It holds more boost higher up.

    You can get about 240bhp rather than 210 with a remap! Get a K04 - cost you no more.

    Sorry to hear you had the turbo go though. That sucks.
