    It means the blades have been "clipped" to prevent surging. I assume it's a hybrid.

    Deffo A4 fitment?

    ask if they balanced it after clipping-and how they balanced it.

    if Owens did it, it will be done. Owens do it for a living, my CHRA came from them.

    It will make it slightly laggier, but will make it flow it a bit better at the top end.

    What is the rest of the spec of the turbo?

    Link to the advert?

    Waste of time that.

    The compressor is stock, so theres nothing to be gained from cutting the turbine blades, barring slowing the spool.

    Ive got a KO3 if you like but the mileage will put you off despite the fact the car is boosting completely inline with spec measurements according to VCDS and engine generally sweet with a peak 126 g/s for MAF at 6060..
