Wrong forum. Go post in the "Turbo" section.

You could go K04 with a tune for some extra HP or you could even go with a Garret for more.

You can always get a K04 without a tune as it should last longer than a K03 granted you don't buy an ebay one.

Get a used one from the classifieds. I would suggest a K03-0029 as the best low cost option.

Default Listen Dylan

Listen, if your just putting on a new Ko3 then this doesnt really reply but if your looking for more power then go on the BigTurbo thread in the TT section... and ps its tough to swallow but with 180000 your looking at a complete engine build if your looking for alot more power, and even then... Dont push it
