    Thread: Are these genuine borg warner k04's??? Help please!!!!!!!!!!!1

    1. 02-27-2012 06:44 PM #1
      Bought this set of turbos from a member on here as GENUINE BORG WARNER rebuilt K04 turbos a while back, and now that it is time for install I really would like to make sure they are before I put motor back in. I bought a parts car that has 100% legit K04's and the tag is different. Help please so I can get this car back together.

      Cant say for sure.The actuator look like they have been painted.Also i was under the impression all borg warner turbos had blue and silver tags riveted to them not silver.What did you pay for the set??Retail new they cost about $2k i think.

      Looks like legit ko4's that have been rebuilt with new CHRA's and painted high temp paint.
      the car is on an inclined driveway and up on jack stands in the front only
