    Thing is with ebay everyone wants a bargin so they wont pay top dollar for it IMO. Most of the VAG people who know what it is will know where to get them cheap new anyway. Stick it on and see what happens. If you seel the Outlaw ill have it possibly :)

    Well its on. !!! :o.k:

    Not 100% its better than the K04, it definatly spools eariler and noisier, and doesnt seem to run out of puff as soon as the k04 did, but the power delivery seems smoother. I guess i expected it to be much better rather than a bit better, i guess i need to get it mapped now as she is only seeing 10 psi max boost and i am chipped :ohmy:

    The k04 was only giving 12 psi max mind you, so this turbo could in theory be flowing more air for less pressure. I need to get the mapping sorted now, too late to get it done before inters,lol

    So anyone fancy a k04-15?? lol
