400 is a bargain, even if they are copies. Can I have them?

Just wondering why didnt you go for the K04 from the LCR/S3???

The K03s runs out of puff a bit quickly.

not once rebuilt with goodies, k03 can bolt onto sotck mani and downpipe oil lines etc, so saves me fannying about with them. from what i've read everywhere the k03s was the best option without going gt28, did look into the gt2x but reliability seemed to be an issue

"Hi Lee,
We can upgrade your K03s to the K03/04 spec, this have given a dyno proven 280+Bhp.
We can enlarge the housings of your turbo to fit the larger turbine and compressor wheels.
With an uprated actuator it will cost 545 plus 12 carriage plus VAT to modify your turbo. The work takes 2-3 days.
Hope this helps, cheers
please ask if you have any further questions

cr seem to be the place in every search. Is it any cheaper than a k04 though?

it spools quicker than a k04 and i you don't have to change manifolds and oil and water lines etc, can also fit to stock downpipe. so it just looks like it was there from factory, subtlety FTW
