Right heres the situation after some thought and a quick buy of a k04 for my tqs, to do a conversion on as im getting bored of the power well not bored just feel like im missing out on the potential power :).
so the k04 is hopefully going to beachbuggy soon for new bearings, so that should be all good when it comes back.
Im after about 250-270 hp, as I will be running the k04 on mostly stock s3 parts (manifold, injectors and possibly tip), the only thing that is going through my mind is fmic do i really need a wellycooler or could i go for the next size down, and keep the smic and use them in tandem or is that a silly idea, and i should just get the wellycooler and do it properly.
so on the shopping list at the moment is
will the S3 stock exhaust cope with 250-270 or will I need to get something else.
so when all this is done i will have some k03s parts that need a new home if anyone is interested.
