    anyone interested in a cheap turbo?

    Going to the States in 5 weeks, picking up a GT2871r for about Ł500.
    was thinking of getting a couple......

    You can send it to them to build your turbo it will bring a K04-15 up near on a TT KO4 so power could be in the 260bhp area if there info is correct.

    flanges designed by Badger Bill, merge collector from Burns Stainless, pipes from .....forgotten the name (any old stainless provider will do em).
    I need the Turbo and block back before I can start putting it together as they need to be built around the space of the engine bay, location of turbo, MAF, D/P, exhaust, head flange etc.
    Once I have this one mocked up I can build a jig and knock up some more.
    It is not a full time job but they are likely to work out around Ł400 all being well. 10mm flanges, 316 SS Sch10 1.5" tubing, laser cut and robotically TIG welded low angle merge collector (that thing is $220 by itself...but worth it)


    just don't hold your breath, chances of this thing being on the road and finished by March are very slim! I am away for 6 weeks, then there is the Chistmas NY break, car is in the paint shop for 2 weeks, don't get the block components for another 5 weeks......and I have to find time to work in there somewhere!!

    Ed aftera wee bit of research thinking of this unit instead, should give me a good punt BHP wise and still be spooling up early.

    I heard that too, much worse than the GT28RS etc. just a mismatched combo of compressor and turbine I think

    you can get a t25 manifold for £150 (another thread on here) and then you are open to any amount of better turbos

    not bad, mine are $300 for 4.

    beware of importr tax though.
    Last few items I have had tax applied to it worked out at close to 40% once they have taken a percentage of goods value AND shipping cost and then added VAT to it!!
    have an arguement with DHL on the go at the moment as they claim that someone paid $50 to ship me some sunglassed worth...wait for it.....$40!

    They want £12 tax on something that cost me £25!

    Please do as they state this conversion on a K04-15 will bring it in to the 225 TT kO4 turbo range which as most know will see around 260-280bhp which is way better than the 240bhp the K04-15 can reach.

    The company is based in Poland by the way

    I know, it only costed Ł30 to post it to them, and so far they have been in touch all the way. Sean the guy that runs it is an american living in Poland, he is very knowledgable , and fortunatly things are cheaper in Poland than here or in the US.

    The total will be around $600 ish returned to me balanced and rebuilt. I am having a new shaft fitted too .

    So for Ł300 i am having a fully rebuilt upgraded turbo, BARGAIN !!

    Sounds good, so they just fit in a few bigger bits and make a k03 better than a K04?

    You going to get a custom map since it will be a strange turbo?
