Regarding the actual K04 boner question... watson here let me drive his K04, and it blew me away. I want one very badly now. Just did the downpipe for stage 2, next is intercooler, and then I'll be set for K04.

I used to just think about how cool it would be, now I think about how cool it will be. Eye on the prize.

Thanks watson for starting a new obsession.

Much smoother than my stage 1 tune. Now that I'm stage 2, I feel like I'm half way in between the smoothness. With K04, what grabbed me was the INSANE power from the midrange all the way to redline. It's still totally daily drivable and feels stock until you open it up, and then it just... keeps... pulling...

The IHI turbo peaks hard and quick but then out and runs out of breath to toward the end, where the K04 builds fast and then just plows through it's range until the end. It's wonderful.

I agree 100%. It's perfect for a daily driver. The power comes on strong and just look at most K04 dyno runs how smooth it is.

I mean it's not a huge jump up from stock as far as physical size but the power you get is perfect.

I've owned and driven BT high HP cars. Yea you get to brag about 600hp but half the time you never get in to full boost on the street. Plus when you do have an open road to floor it once you get in to boost at like 5k RPM it climbs so quickly you have to shift like you're masturbating on crack.

heh, why did I suspect a thread like this coming after a certain other thread where you made a certain allusion to making said thread :P confused?

I would have to say envy for now, once I get my R and get it flashed I will enjoy the pawah!

Mind = Blown from that post. But never the less....you're gonna LOVE the R. I want so bad

I agree with Rotary, the power delivery in itself is worth the $2500. I was totally happy with my choice to give up the Stage 3 kit for the K04 during the raffle. I have regretted that decision a total of 2 times.

Now I sit here with almost 13-14K miles on my K04 with not a single issue and get the K04 boner every day.

i guess stage 3 is the "special" one that barely anyone can or will afford. K04 is the new stage 2.

K04 is still a different league of power on the GTI. Its just awesome that its so affordable and you get SO much power.

We all remember when Stage 3 was only 385 hp right? It was still $5K at the time! Imagine you can pump almost 400bhp with 100oct on a K04.

While some may say its the "new" Stage 2 (or Stage 2+...I dunno) its still a blast to drive. Coupled with all of the supporting mods (Suspension, IC, Mounts, Tires, Clutch...etc.etc.) you're definitely in a bracket of winners. Also consider that some TSIs with K04s are running 12.00s in the 1/4 upwards to 119mph! Thats fucking insane for a $2500 mod.
