    I know of only one guy who is running a hybrid K04 on his S3, and I don't think he has seen 300BHP on any rolling road yet?! I've driven the car, and it's certainly quicker than my AmD stage 1 with a very quick turbo spool up make for a pretty rapid machine with minimal lag... and that was with 2 additional passengers inside!
    I think the injectors will be a limiting factor for 300BHP, even with a hybrid turbo.

    It's Simon Elmon, I've only met hime twice maybe 3 times at rolling road meets, he purchased his Hybrid turbo from the U.S IIRC, do a search maybe on his username (try simonelmon ? ) and look at his posts, but I'm not sure if it's well documented on what he's done, as he's not a compulsive poster. He tends to add things onto his S3 as he sees fit, and he posted a list of mods somewhere, sometime ago, not seen or heard from him in ages though...

    if you not after massive power increases then why not just chip it??? it will need remapping anyway if you fit a bigger turbo.

    yeah my innitial plans were to remap the car with a turbo back exhaust but whats thrown me is im not sure it'll be enough, my best mate drives an ibiza cupra which he had a ko3s turbo fitted, hes now fitted a hybrid turbo the same ko3s shell and the difference is amazing, figures arent massively different but the way it drive is awesome so this is why its now crossed my mind, any ideas anyone, thanks again daz

    Have you considered an ATP eliminator? Their GT2x should see about 290-300bhp, its simple to fit, and relatively cheap. Not sure about the injectors at that power level. I'd have thought they'd need replacing. My S3 injectors couldn't handle 335bhp. Don't forget there's a few other bits and pieces you'll need to consider when going that far - bigger MAF, intercoolers, bigger TIP, etc.
