Yes, their website says so, but this topic has been covered many many many times. Arin has clarified it as "Stage K04" to eliminate confusion from their actual Stage 3 kit. They just lump it in the Stage 3 category because it is a bigger turbo.

Stage 3 was actually formed by APR in a way to denote their Big Turbo setup (GT28) but normally Stage 3 denotes just any BT. Most will argue across the board that K04 is TECHNICALLY not a BT because it is just an OEM swap, but who decides that?

I've always felt K04 to be Stage 3/BT because it is in fact a bigger turbo. Unitronic denotes it as a Stage 2+ upgrade, Revo Denotes it as K04 Tune, APR Denotes it as a K04 tune, etc. etc.
Interesting.

In any case, when I go K04 myself, that 3rd line for my APR Badge is getting put on. It's a "bigger" turbo, it's Stage 3 to me. Don't rain on my parade!

Well shoot, now I have to sell my K04 and buy a Stage 3 kit. I can't live this lie anymore.

+3 Internets for Grambles...

If this thread were around when I was first looking into getting my GTI, I would have been far more productive at work. Instead, I had to spend hours each day lurking various threads to figure out exactly what mods I wanted to do.
