    Is this "kit" you refer to an eliminator 2 kit or CTS Turbo one?
    the k04 conversion you mention was an actual K04, with k04 manifold etc yea? The eliminator 2 I think are for K03 installs... not sure if they offer an Eliminator 2 kit for K04 (225 engines)

    pistons should be ok, mapping to suit, and rods are a good idea.

    28 won't flow much more, if any, than your hybrid mate to be fair.

    i belive you would be better off going hybrid on the k04, eliminator turbos are supposed to be laggy so you would benefit more from hybrid and you would be seeing similar figures to that of the gt28 would also work out cheaper as you have the k04 setup anyway
