TTE480 turbocharger ordered from www.all-stars-motorsport.com . I hope it is the right turbo for me.
It will take a while until I'll get it, because I've chose to upgrade my k04. Right now still waiting for their procedure to send it to TTE.
I will not push it all the way, I'm still with stock internals. Looking for 430-440 bhp.

I hope you like the turbo. It should be really good for track since you'll always run in high revs where you won't have any lag. :evilgrin:

I hope so too. My current k04 setup is hard to beat on mid rpm's:



But my best 100-200 was 9.2 without aero mods and 9.8 with the rear wing on. I hope to get it a lot lower and not loose the exit speed on low rpms.

Yeap, you're pushing the K04 to its limits. With was petrol do you run usually? It's noticeable the difference in higher revs when I add octane booster to my RON98. :smiley:

I was using OMV MaxxMotion 100plus, They say it's 100RON, but who knows.
My tuner said he tried octane booster without any noticeable improvement, that's why I haven't tried it. But I think I'll give it a try with the new turbo. ;)

What octane booster has he tried? I've always had good improvements on the road and on the dyno with the Nitrous Formula Race Octane Booster.

 :notworthy:Good to know.  :happy2:
I don't know what he tried, but I'll make some 100-200 VBOX runs with and without and I'll judge myself. I would try Millers first, I can get it for free.

If you can get it for free, I'd always run it on my car and only on important races I'd go with the Nitrous Formula octane booster.  :signLOL:

I used that in my old n'asp VR6 a long time ago and it made the spark plug tips and piston crowns orange  :grin:   It wasn't that good imo.  Couldn't advance more than a couple of degrees.

Years ago I had access to Sunoco 110 octane race fuel and I was able to advance My VR6 turbo's ignition a full 10 degrees in boost, and a good 15-20 degrees off boost.   10% throttle did the same job as 25% throttle on pump fuel!  Awesome stuff, but waaaaaay too expensive for regular use  :grin:

WOOOW! That sounds awesome.
I'm concerned about more than 430-440 bhp and 600nm with stock clutches and stock internals. I'm already pushing it, good thing I'm only racing short sessions. With the new turbo that power should be achievable on pump gas.
Next step will be forged pistons & conrods and I'll try some race fuel.

Yeah forged pistons  :happy2:  I had good luck with W√∂ssner.  They're not as loose in the cylinders as say Wiseco or JE, so the oil consumption isn't high.  If you can, use drop-in ones and don't touch the factory honing.  That can also affect oil consumption.

Nice rods from Carillo would be cool  :happy2:  I think you can also use coated RS4 rod bearings in the EA113 as well for extra reliability  :happy2:

As for the clutch, you can use a TTRS pressure plate with stock or Helix friction plate, which is good for around 500lbft torque, maybe a bit more.

The weak link is the DMF, but not a lot you can do about that.  You could use a single mass flywheel I suppose if it's just for racing  :happy2:
