    That looks dodgey. Contact beach buggy on here. He makes some great hybrids :) I'm hopefully going for one this year when bill does my rods, all in one is probably best.

    thats looks like a cheap chineese copy k04-001 or a chineese copy k03's by the looks of it? i have a dead one in my garage that i just took off a mates A3 with a snapped shaft? I built him a decent hybrid k03 using genuine parts to replace it as it only lasted 2 months......

    Joe mate, stop being a stinge and looking for a life changing bargain. If you want this build to work you need the best turbo you can afford; it's what provides the power.

    Talk to Dan and do what he says, then your car will be great.
