    Mine was so bad that when i got it I took it to ABT near me to test drive it and they said there was nothing wrong with that lol, so i just assumed it was heavy and slow

    ...the engine is fine, its the turbo... its simply too small to flow the volume of air required to develop that sort of power....

    Hmmmm, done any logging with VAG COM at all on it? Air mass readings etc?

    No readings, but no faults showing. its got to be remapped when i get it back next week so hopefully things may show up then

    Thought you said she was mapped already, or you going stage 2?

    Its Revo, assume its stage 1, so when I get it back im going to get it upgraded to make benefit of the Hybrid (albeit small)

    Worth doing to make use of the kit you've got. I'd make sure there isn't anything wrong with it mate to be honest, REVO maps are notoriously aggressive, and as a general rule feel quite powerful, so I'm surprised to hear you say it's gutless.

    cams may help, BUT, they push the power up the rev band, and given the k0x turbos dont flow much at high revs, you are unlikely to realise any flow gains when the compressor/turbine are out of puff

    i recon that an IHI kit (either VF34 or VF22) is probably the best way to go if you want a good 300hp. it might involve a bit (alot) more work than installing a hybrid K04 but at the end of the day you wont have the turbo at its limit all the time and it will probably be more reliable than a hybrid...
