    The E05 K04 Hybrid

    [​IMG]

    K03 S Comp wheel & larger turbine wheel - looks like a k22 wheel to me:

    Learn more about it here

    This looks like the perfect bolt on to take you past the magic 300, sell your k04 to someone with a 180 or turbo sport and your well away /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif

    I hope to see at least one of you with this and 320cc's before the summer is out /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Research it carefully, ive followed this on Vortex and it produces no more power than a K04 from a TT/S3

    Got one on the golf, and the turbos rated in the 250-260hp region at best. It's smaller than the K04 you've got on your s3's already.
    You'd be better getting a K04-23 modified if you want a bolt on option, or go for a propper big turbo.
    On an 150/180hp car this turbo works well as an upgrade.

    This isnt for mine, I had a hybrid k04-23.

    From what I read the E05 was larger than the K04, they obvious mean the K04-15.

    Sorry guys!

    So what's your thoughts for someone with a fecked K03? What's the cheapest upgrade and the easiest to get a map for? Was originally considering a Mitsi TD04, but I'm concerened about the amount of work I'll have to do to fit it as the kit is intended for a 210/225 TT and whether I can get a map done cheaply...preferably Oettinger...any ideas welcome.

    a modded k04/k03 hybrid is going to be a good replacement for a k03.

    for a real custom chip solution, i can think of several ways - someone like AMD, try revo they have some code for non-standard turbos, or maybe a dastek unichip - these dont actually change the ecu chip, but use a piggyback system to modify the chips responses.

    they are extremely good if the installer is good. the installation/mapping price is usually about £500

    Just chuck a second hand k03S on it and run your standard map. You'll gain some top end for £250.
    Jabba have already produced some tweaked maps for k03s's on k03 cars (ndbw).
    Revo can offer maps for hybrids on dbw cars.

    Agreed, no need to change your map, I ran a k04 on my std map whilst waiting for a remap.

    Obviously you're not going to get the most out of the turbo, but it's a cheap route to more power.

    Should be no reason why it wouldn't run OK.
    I ran the e05 on a k03s map for months without a problem, but some guys have run ko3s on k03 maps, and had minor problems.

    Don't know for sure andy. My glof ones were borderline on the ko3s at 4 bar, and bigger ones are £200+ the vat.

    Talk to Kev. He can give you a better idea.
