    i havent been on here for a while. how is everyone.

    i have a feeling that the factory ko3 is slowing going out its the original turbo so that means it has 131k on it. would the engine be able to handle the ko4 since it has 131k on it and the trans has under 20k on it.

    There are cheaper alternatives out there that give better gains though, and are more reliable than the KKK-series turbos.

    since i have an auto trans would it be able to hold up to a gt2871rs upgrade?
    or would i have to stick with a basic k03 or k03s or k04.
    i am located in the United states so shipping would probly be cheaper
