Oil running through my veins.
Is this possible to do on the k04s? if you take the dump valve off and let the turbo spin back on itself to make that beautiful sound... are the turbo's strong enough.. even though not recommended anyone done this?
God knows how long the turbo would cope with air running the wrong way through it. Buy two K04s just in case.
i dont really want to be sending air down the wrong way on the turbo, but id prefere this noise.. is there any other way of doing it then on the BAM engine?
Would this make a difference to performance if my DV is messed!?
Can i just say.....
I love the noise personally. What i do think though is that Ess is mistaking it for something else!
Now it makes sense.. thanks prawn.. lol glen i think you made your point on the first post.. thats why i checked with you guys first to see if its possible but i didnt get the BAM engine just for that noise.. i just thought it would be a little different! lol
Thanks for all the input guys!
Man, please, for the love of the children....
.... READ THE THREAD!!!
it IS NOT chatter, it's compressor stall. it's NOT GOOD, the noise is NOT GOOD
Your recirc valve is ******. change it.
Glen, do the anti surge housings you see with extra holes around the compressor wheel actually work? if so, how do they work?
From what you are all saying on here the K04 turbo is a bad setup? Small and therefore not that good for power?
How does a hybrid compare? If i was to whack a hybrid on and re-map would i get the magic 300Hp?
I'm toying with the idea of tuning the S3 a little. I don't want a Big turbo conversion as i cant justify the cost. There are other things i like to spend money on. But £1500 doesn't seem to bad for a turbo and re-map.
There are some people which argue that a blocked BOV to enduce compressor stall does in fact increase throttle response especially between changes because all of the air compressed by the turbo is not vented through the bov so when the turbo begins spooling again after gear change the intercooler/pipes will still be somewhat pressurised.
This has become a very interesting thread.. Glen/kev, whats the most boost you can run on a standard BAM ko4 set up.. remapped set up and BT set up?
I would love over 300 lbs of torque!
Glen so from the sounds of it, you prefer the ko4 remapped..
is this running the turbo on its limits, or can i get over 300lbs on a remapped BAM ko4 quite comfortably?
