      Since i bought the turbo kit 3 years ago. Pro IMports SW is tuned to run at 18lbs of boost.

      Keep me posted as to what you find out. I had the exact same symptoms after I just changed my waterpump and T-stat. Top hose was super hot bottom hose was cold (it was very cold out though). Few days later my headgasket popped (saw it was leaking a week before out the back of the block). I'm putting my car back together next week but I'm still worried I haven't found the source of the problem. I'm thinking about getting the rad flow tested. Please keep me posted

      I think it might be a air pocket in the block. How would one go about burping the system?

      so none of the K04-2x turbos bolt directly up to a K03s car?
      I am only looking at a k04-001 or k04-015 ? to fit my AWP

      only the k04-001, the k04-015 is the longitudinal version of the k04-001.

      IS there anywhere that sells this kit? I could probably source it from the classifieds, but a warranty would be appreciated, I can't kind it anywhere on the web, I check pro-imports but their site is kinda shoddy and confusing.
      Thanks, Grant

      I might be selling my Pro Imports k04-20 kit. I will be selling turbo, manifold, injectors, UPpipe to connect to your DP, PI oil return kit, PI water lines, one OEM AUDI 225 coolant line (turbo to block), TIP, turbo mounting bolts.

      update on my tuning: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3766826

      I am now running 20psi, mid 12's for afr tapering to low 11's at redline... I think I can dial some more fuel out. Timing pull is almost nonexistant.. 2.3 & a 3 here and there (-3,75 deg out though).

      RUNS great.

      Even got my T-stat to finally open up! so I will update my lower coolant hose topic also.

      That's a GLI - so 6spd + heavier + sedan. Spare was out, top 1/2 of backseat was out. Everything else was as usual. I'm closing in on the max MPH at least. I still can't get off the line though

      Spraying water/meth or not? If you aren't you should because that will easily give you another 20+ whp. I know because it did for me. Either way, those are great numbers for this kit in a GLI

      Thanks. No WMI yet. However, it'll be a summer project. I'm a little concerned about the torque, so I may wait until rods are in or something... we'll have to see still. I'm going to dyno it again before deciding. The car pulls well, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if I could come back with a 106-107mph trap soon - without WMI still. Something was kind of a miss today (compared to normal). I'm not quite sure what was up, but my boost gauge was reading as if I had a vac leak. I'm going to pressure test it and see what's going on. It felt a little flat up top ~6k as well, so I think maybe I have a leak somewhere now So I think there may be a little more potential in it yet.

      You multiply it by 11-13% drive train loss then what you get you add it to the WHP.

      250whp x 11%= 250whp +27.5drivetrain loss= 277.5hp
      250whp x 12%= 250whp + 30 drive train loss= 280 hp
      250whp x 13% = 250whp + 32.5 drive train loss= 282.5hp

      IIRC PI used to claim ~244whp and called that something like 288 @ the crank... or ~15% loss. With that being the figure, then 300 crank would be ~255whp.

      I'll be putting out over 250whp next dyno. Either Unitronic or Revo will do it. Just in very different ways. If anyone gives me $$ to dyno I'd have results by now... but frankly, there are way more important things to deal with. But, I can list you pros & cons between the two softwares if you're truly interested.

      From the logs I've seen of GIAC thus far... I don't think you'd be able to make 250 on GIAC. I can't remember the username of the guy whose logs I looked over and gave him advice on, but he was having some issues with his k04-02x file and it wasn't nearly as aggressive as Uni or Revo. Revo being the most aggressive IMO.

      guys im having some boost issues with my -20 as well now..

      I used to hold at 24psi all day, but now its tappering, it fluctuates between 20-22psi and wont hit 24. It sounds to me like a small leak when i'm under boost, but i cant find it! i've tightened everything. The only thing that i changed on the car that made this do it is a 45 degree silicone coupler so that it made my intercooler pipes work. After installing that it did what im describing now, Before i had a 2 1/4 reducer to a 2 inch to fit the pipes, and it ran 24 psi all the time. I can't figure out what's wrong. I've tried to change clamps, etc. on it as well but it still does it.

      I also notice some oil is spraying on my manifold from the valve cover, i know i have to do that gasket.. but could that leak boost??

      Any suggestions?

      and for that kid that wanted a ko4-20 video: (before i had a forge TIP)

      The music sucked in the video..... or at least don't put music in a video if you are demonstrating a sound of a car.... kind of takes away from it.

      Do a boost leak test... then come back... and you hold 24psi? I don't think i've herd of any k04 user holding that much till redline... what software?
