    Nick, you don't want exact diameter at the head though! You need a step up in diameter from head to manifold. If you are talking about the manifold ports not lining up with the head ports then I agree it needs work as there is an overlap but if you get the sizing correct on the adaptor you can get a smoother flow transition , I believe from head to manifold which also includes the step . This is why I think our setup made very good power..

    Yeah this is what i mean!We also fitted k04-064 at 1.4 tsi Seat ibiza cupra dsg with stock internals and spools like oem although that have compressor at low rpm!About 300 bhp safe because of stock internals and with no gap between compressor and turbo at 2.500-3000 rpm.Just spools like oem!If you see how this turbo works even at 1.4 tsi motor you will get amazed...The compination with dsg(remmaped) - low weight of car makes it really good!

    i didn't have the chance to work at rhd car because here in greece we have only lhd cars but i think it is possible to fit! I need to see the motor bay to have a better opinion! There is also the way to use the turbo at the opposite site and make another fitment! These are just some minds! Can you upload a rhd motor bay and back to turbo housing to see the fitment?

    if you are interested i can upload them later and also the dyno of 1.4 tsi! At 1-2 months we think to use aftermarket internals and see how k04-064 work at 1.4 tsi and what bhp produce at its limits and also with hybrid turbo!

    Hello from Germany,

    im planning to add the K04-023 EGT probe to the K04-064 Manifold. Anyone besides loba welded on this material? I think its D5s metal.
    There are some K04-064 @ 1.8t running in germany by the way.

    cheers

    Good job - good numbers!Stock motor?I think that you can have more torgue than 352 lb!This turbo easily produces 400 lbs and more... Do you have pics closely to turbo to see the lhd fitment?

    rebuilt AGU engine with forged rods :)

    Torque is kept back on mine for traction reasons, the car is FWD and used entirely on track, any more torque and it's just too much of a handful.

    We had it over 380lbft during mapping, but at the time I was also on a 5 speed 02J box, so we pulled the torque back to 350lbft to get a more linear delivery and save the box / shafts :racer:

    Remember our lbft measurement is quite different to Nm also, 352lbft being almost 480Nm :)

    On a side note, this one is still being run on the small OEM charge pipe, hopefully when a better sized one is fitted we can get a bit more out of it..

    Any news on your hybrid Dan? That charge pipe is what I was thinking about recently.. I'd love to get one over to bill so he could measure one up. If all looks well I'd be up for a hybrid build on mine :)

    I have an K04-064 waiting for Dan, my car it's LHD and I'm rebuilding engine and swapping to wideband already have the ECU, just need to deal with imo stuff...
    So as son as Dan got news about the hybrid and all the parts needed come around I'll do something in the LHD version. Also got one LEON Cupra LHD doing the same, but that one as onr 2.0l stroker kit.
