      i have the first TOP that came out..i put the APR adapter in first and clipped it..then i muscled the hose on, it fits but that damn coupler is what pops out..As far as impressions from stage 3 V2 i have no idea..i haven't driven this one enough haven't driven the stage 3 since like august so i kind of forgot..i do think this one lacks some of the torque though..

      My question to you guys is, if you're lowered does your passenger side axle rub on the silicone hose going from the turbo to the TOP?

      Was on mk5 as well. That hose is extremely close to the axle and rubs when it hits bumps I guess.

      That's from compressor surge , prob running to much boost versus what the engine can swallow at a given rpm point. To OP nice job time to enjoy the car. Bob. G

      had a hole in one of the hoses from rubbing. Not sure what hose though. Think Skully also had that problem.

      128-132mph traps off a k04 stage 3 make me a bit sick to my stomach. That isn't even that expensive.

      Yea I hear ya. Dying to find out what this stage 3+ 100 octane file will trap. But it looks like I will not know until the track opens unless you make it before me.

      Did u run on drag radials? You should maybe try the WOTBOX. 2 step with some drag radials will get you off the line precisely. iMO

      No just the advan ad08 / hankook rs-3 tires. no wotbox. I still don't even get the reasoning behind feathering the throttle off the line lol....like I am going to have to stomp on it eventually, right? So if it is eventually going to spin what is the point of wasting time feathering the throttle.

      Last couple times I went with the untuned 3071 I had trouble getting off the line without bogging the car.

      worse than stage 3 v2. I think like 114 was the best. I don't have any of the slips left.

      Now this, this is a big(ish) turbo.

      your 60 foot is what you should be worried about, not your trap.

      ok, so make a thread of you putting that in your car so i can go and post "wow, thats a bigish turbo"

    22. 02-28-2012 09:53 PM #122
      how is your mpg looking ?

      Do some logs when you get a chance/before you dyno.

      I have no use for an obtuse powerband. a .50/.63 works just fine in my volvo for what I need it to.

      And I definitely wouldn't put a turbo like that into my TDI, that thing would never be in boost.



      I'm merely pointing out that a k04 is NOT a big turbo by any standard.
