I like how you say you can just "slap it on"... if only money grew on trees...boostedJTi said:Well uhm... What was the purpose of the car? That kinda helps when you know what to expect from an owner... You could just slap on APR's Stage III+ kit put on a front mount and call it a day...
It's not about the size, it's the compressor itself. Better spool and boost more. Heard people spike over 25psi with them. Just a K04 and apr chip with a tbe throws down 275whp... (Most K04 upgrade kits come with the software for the chip, send the ecu out blah blah blah...)is the k04 that much bigger than the k03???
What kind of power are ya putting down with that setup?Chip
3" downpipe + high flow exhaust (I hear 2.5" is the best, but I run 3")
Beyond this it is just better to go with a big turbo setup, which will work with the mods you have already done.
For a big turbo, I would skip the APR kit and build one based on the eliminator series from garret:
Upgraded injectors, maf, intake pipe, and big turbo software... should put you in the neighborhood of 300hp.
*sigh* a man can dream...
also look where the filter comes out you don't want the filter in the middle of your engine. mine is infront of my drivers front tire. in a direct flow setup but u may not want that if you are going into lots of puddles or in the rain alot.more bends = poor flow
less angled bends = better flow
bigger piping = better flow
Carbonio probably has the best intake available for the mkiv platform.
