    Autobahn88 silicone turbo intake hose.

    My turbo will hopefully be here this week too. Got to collect my turbo fitting kit from Audi (gaskets, studs etc).

    Then it's intercooler and remap!!

    Went with Scroll Products SP51R turbo which is far from a Big Ass Turbo but more like an alternative to the K04-15. Still good for over 225bhp although I'm probably only looking for a reliable 220 so will be plenty good enough.

    I would think the Scroll should be good for around 230-240bhp with the right mapping as the K03s is good for 220bhp on a map.

    Yeah got a map sorted but got to get my intercooler first.. probably leave the engine tuning at that for this year. Hopefully fitting coilovers and wheel spacers soonish.

    Oh yeah.. bigger brakes would be nice too!

    Going with CC Tuning as he comes recommended and was an Audi technician previously apparently. My friend had his new A4 2.5 TDI remapped the other week by him and hasn't stopped grinning since :happy:

    Been through my modifications with him and he seems confident about achieving good gains.

    He said he can do the custom map for £300.00 ish which I thought was a bargain but I'll hold judgement until I call him back when I've fitted the new parts.. as it was only an estimate over the phone!

    ..it's similar to the K04-15 with the modified turbine etc but the SP51'R' has a twin oil feed bearing. Should be good for over 240bhp but I'm sticking with the standard AEB maf and injectors so I'm aiming for 220bhp - 230bhp with the custom map and FMIC too.

    Same as your's but re-profile turbine housings and new shaft to take a much larger turbine, I understand it should be slightly larger than the TT k04 turbo with the enhanced benifit of the twin oil feed bearing.

    Have you had to replace/modify the hot turbine housing/manifold too?

    $650 for the conversion as my CHAR was no good and $200 for the dead K04-15 all in about £500.

    My intercooler has been dispatched and should be with me for Friday :)

    My new N75 solenoid has just turned up too.

    Is it possible to flush the turbo oil feed pipe?.. should I just buy a new one? Got to make sure everything's in tip top working order for the new turbo.
