Hmm.. I dont mind about the warranty because for the price backdraft want for it, you can buy 3 from the US lol... assuming that it is not one of those made in china units. I have never bought anything from abroad, how does import duty work?
dont scrimp on a turbo, if it goes wrong worst case scenario is you get impellars in your engine and you bend all sorts of things which results in dead engine and alot more cost than just buying a proper turbo.
i actually think that backdrafts costs are reasonable, considering they are uk based, so you get comeback if there is a problem plus they are new and genuine.
A k04 from there is 600 plus vat, considering ive seen second hand ones for sale for 400 with dubious mileage claims and no guarantee, thats a bargain
K03s hybrid is tried and tested with good feedback, there're a few who had problems with their hybrid units and had to have it returned to cr turbos a few times, but generally I think they're good. Or you could go for a k04-02x turbo like from the 225tt and lcr - Im selling a k04-02x turbo kit
I thought k04-001 is different from a k03 hybrid, I thought a k04-001 was in most aspects very similar to the k03s and that a k03 hybrid was basically a k04-02x compressor wheel which is larger than a k04-001 wheel.
As far as i know yes there is not only one type of hybrid ko3s because it depends what spec its build to and which parts its using. I think i might go down the ko3 hybrid route. I need to get into contact with a few companies. Does anybody know any? Iv heard of CR Turbos and Turbo Dynamics...
