ko3s can give more boost and hold it longer than a k03 turbo.thnx man....what about the KO3 sport, what are the reviews on it?
Just been going through a few KO4 Vs KO3 / KO3S turbos and wonder what type of gains I'd see side by side..Mines a 1.8T and I'm going to be going for a custom re map, sports cat downpipe -all the usual..what would the HP difference be between a KO4 and KO3..This is pretty new to me as I've just had a Revo remap for as far back as I can remember, I deally I'd like to aim somewhere near the 250 BHP mark or thereabouts.ko3s can give more boost and hold it longer than a k03 turbo.thnx man....what about the KO3 sport, what are the reviews on it?
revo remap on a standard 1.8t wilth k03 will put out 190-195bhp
revo remap on a standard 1.8t with a k03s will put out about 210bhp
I have a k03 on my 1.8t (arz,drive by wire) and had the revo trial on my car. I was more than happy with the power and it was putting out around 195bhp, but many members on here have said there is quite a bit of difference between a remapped k03 1.8t and a k03s 1.8t.....which made me decide to go and buy a k03s b4 i get remapped.
Ive just managed to get a k03s (unsilenced one) from a 2002 1.8t off flea bay for ?140.
get one bought :>
ps ...dont bother with the k04...far too expensive to get it all the parts and even when you have sourced all the parts you need, you then have to modify some of those parts for it to fit properly. Too much hassle for bugger not alot of gain over a k03s ;>
Cheers Tom,k03s is a direct replacement k04 needs manifold downpipe coolant lines ideally injectors and maf to make the most.
if you're dead set on 250 at the wheels you will need a bigger turbo than the k03s but i'd say save up and get an eliminator or similar as in the end a k04 install will creep up as mine is at the moment.
A well mapped (custom) k03s install should see you at 230-240 on our agu's i'm hoping for about 275-280 out of my k04 but i'm after torque and a wide powerband than top end figures and hope this can be manipulated during the custom mapping process
Hey dude.... That pipe is for a Golf but it is for later type Annis and AUQ engines IIRC... You can still use it but you need to blank off two holes and extend your original Breather pipe to fit alot of messing around to fit it on an AGU if you dont mind blanking two holes off..http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160168738735
found this TIP would it fit mine?
I reckon 1 1/2k ive been told a FMIC or SMIC isn't vital but I think I'd rather do it all in one go..regarding the manifold and injectors what should I be looking for- any part numbers or brand names as I'm not up on this one [:$]
Thanks for all your advice..I know it's been done to death but just wanted to gain some piece of mind for myself ta
Please do a fitting guide that would be great!Just fitted my ko3s to my AGU,
Its running standard map but with next 3 months - ebay decat pipe, ebay FMIC (?289) and 4 Bar FPR,
Then custom code map.
Thats all the money I will be spending on this one. I wish I never started now!
Oh, And when I get a sec, a ko3s fitting guide.
PPS - oh and a new one of these <----------------- (Suzuki Sj or Vitara)
