    It would be interesting to know what turbo that was for then!

    I have to ask do you want a clipped tur one or is that what they sold you or you wanted?

    CR scare me a bit if I'm honest.

    I have Wellys old hybrid, and it's epic. It's known to make power, and it's come through Bill, yet even he was messed around with dodgy housings and the like!

    What I dO know though, is that when it needs a rebuild (and trust me, IT WILL!), it'll not be going back to CR. I just don't trust that I'd get the same turbo back. I'd send it to Dan as I know he'd do a good job of it.

    inconsistent is the issue... they can build good ones.. but also carelessly also send out ones with erratic build spec... Thats an issue.

    TD give good prices on new units.. their stage 4 is the equivalent..
    much rivalry between the two Co's I believe.

    I have heard (not experienced) issues on warranty from TD same as I have from CR..... Usual cop outs of blaming oil contamination for bearing failures for example...

    TD would be my other choice or AET

    Both my hybrid K04's came from TD
    As bill said, only real issue is warrenty but they are all the same, Only covered if on a fully stock car. Which it isnt going to be if your fitting a hybrid turbo!
    The price diffrence between TD and CR was huge though,
    CR said something like £650 to rebuild/ exchange my stage 4 TD unit,
    TD said £1300 as it was all beyond repair ?

    What do you charge Dan for an equivalent 2283 based RS6 turbine?

    At the moment They are around £700. That's using the existing turbine housing and compressor housing. With an updated actuator, all ported and completely new CHRA. I'm having a little trouble getting 2283 compressor, I've got some coming in the next 4 weeks, I even had to supply one to TD recently as they couldn't get any!

    All mine are built to order and to the users requirements, I've got a couple of new spec turbos coming out soon and a couple to be tested but I'd like to think as I'm only doing k03/k04 turbos I can offer a more consistent product. Time will tell.

    Gt28 compressor is no issue, nor is gt30 or gt35. My latest build/project has a gt35 compressor in a k04 comp housing. Fitting it in isn't the issue, it's making the thing work. Turbines are a little more tricky, as shaft sizes,lengths, seals, bearings and Iducer/exducer sizes are completely different, add to that the k04 turbine housing is by far the biggest restriction limiting any of these hybrids, just fitting in a gt28 isn't the answer and to be honest for all the cost and heartache you may as well just fit a gt28.

    My main thing I'm looking into is building a larger turbine housing to help back pressures and heat, the hope is to be able to utilise this on hybrids together some decent performance gains, the reason at the moment of running a stupidly big gt35 comp wheel is to see if it will firstly run and secondly flow sensible air, but again the turbine housing restricts the turbo so it's never going to be a practical hybrid and hence the testing, but on the back of this a gt28 compressor wheel may be suitable especially as a replacement for the hard to get of 2283.


    Im getting the opinion more and more the 2283 is very under utilised in these hybrids and similar power could be made with a 2280compressor , hopefully time will tell

    Interesting.. I'd say ridiculous to be honest , it's complete over kill and may flat on its face but I wanted to see what was possible on the cold side keeping within the constraints of the k04 . It's never going to be anything I'd sell but it seemed an interesting thing to try as if a decent hotside can be conceived then running a gt28r or gt30 maybe a more realistic consideration providing costs can be realistic. And having spent a good amount of time getting the gt35 into a k04 I know it can be done for reasonable £'s.

    And if it's a disaster then it's been good r and d

    No
    I haven't read Dougs post but will search unless you could provide a link! Please

    Ahh yes I remember you posting a thread a while back on these €800 a piece! Not quite sure it's worth the money but it may be worth trying.

    I think that if these can be made up for a sensible price they may be worth it especially when turbine housings are impossible to get hold or are cheap quality.

    they look to machine and insert a piece to the hotside, which is something you might be able to also do?

    another question is one of the eliminator k04 hotsides... and how they compare to k04 bw size wise...

    you mean regarding the thrust washer?

    id check the actuator pressure and make sure thats right and is set up correctly. they seem to be a big pain on these things
