I believe it works seamlessly if the engine is the same engine code as the original. If you're CCTA, use CCTA, if CBFA, use CBFA. I could be wrong though.

Not in my experience; my fueling can't keep up with my K04 protune thus far. My rail pressure has been very inconsistent. Some runs actual is close to requested, but others it's only at 1700PSI...

They likely have too much workload and cannot take any more protune customers right now. They do this from time to time.

Contact HPA. I've heard that clamp leaked for a few people as well so it may be worth having it welded instead. The stock turbo has a different outlet pipe so there's no clamp to re-use.

My car was running out of fueling on K04 during my ProTuning process. We had to dial back the power to keep fueling adequate.

I've also heard that K04 shouldn't need fueling at all, but...

You should need the thicker washer regardless of the K04 "brand." They're all Borg Warner K04's besides HPA.

That's no good, hopefully you don't have an exhaust manifold stud broken. To put a new exhaust manifold gasket on they will have to remove the turbo. It would be a good time to go K04, but they may...
