    FK Konigsport (adjustable dampers) Venom Motorsport are doing them at a very good price. With regards to the expected power output ..watch this space!

    Yep Turbo Dynamics, what kind of power do they make?
    ...And yes I was looking for a clutch, was going with clutchmasters FX300 ..what kind of price can you get the southbend for?

    depending on your map look around 400 @ 24psi
    but you will defo kill the clutch on the map day and you may wanna think about rods its worth the thought
    FX300 is a very good choice but it you want the oem feel go southbend stage 2 daily inc smfw take upto 400tq
    iv used both and for that oem feel got to be SB $1150 delivered
    was quoted £1200 from a uk based shop i wont name them

    Personally would not run 400 on a stock block but its good to know that the turbo will handle that amount of power. So $1150 (£707) for the clutch delivered? does that include all import duty etc etc , where can i order it from?

    Is a FMIC required for a K04? Or is it just better with one?

    And please keep us updated on your build! I want to do the same :)

    It's not required to have a FMIC however since the K04 will be pushing a lot more air I don't think the standard side mounts will be efficient enough to cool the air.

    Once I’ve completed the build I’m going to post up a dairy/build thread with part numbers and instructions. I feel It's the least I can do since this forum and the people on here have been ever so helpful.

    I went for the ATP FMIC i was contemplating buying an eBay intercooler but I wasn't very happy with the quality of the cores. The ATP core is a hell of alot better and its rated to handle the flow requirements of a larger turbo than the K04.

    Quick question Solaris, if you know much about it, but would it not be better to go for RS4 injectors over S3 ones?

    Just a random thought I had lol.

    the rs4 injectors dont match up to the s3 in any way

    Yet I've seen the americans use them. Don't get me wrong I don't know the specifics of it, just that they're both FSI based engines, but as for flow characteristics, engine management and physical connection issues thats all a little beyond me just yet. I do know of RS4 Injectors up for sale for £50 each at the moment though...lol.

    AFAIK The difference is s3 injectors flow more fuel than the RS4 ones however the RS4 have a better atomisation/spray pattern. The S3 injectors are adequate for the power i’m aiming for. The RS4 injectors would be more suited to bigger framed turbo.

    Sweet, intercooler has returned from being anodised in black. I'm trying to keep everything stock OEM as possible. You definately wont notice this intercooler behind the grill. Enjoy:-

    Solaris,

    If you are getting rid of your standard intercoolers I would be interested in your LH intercooler and mounting bracket?

    I am just looking to fit a K04 to my Sprint Blue DTM at moment. SO watching with interest here.

    Barry.
