So true. I was just going over that same thought in my head this morning. What would be the point of upgrading to a big turbo if Iím skating on thin ice while remaining on a stock engine. Sure it could be done, but Iíd rather at the minimum do rods, and if Iím doing rods I should go ahead and upgrade and refresh most components. And yeah at that point it would be 10k or even more.

CTS is having a sale right now so Iím pulling the trigger on the k04. I think Iíd be content if I can reach close to or right at 300whp for now.

Update from the dyno today. Dynojet dyno, florida 85F 12pm so good humidity too.
My car, fbo k04 p&p e30 blend tuned by Frank Mabo of Mabotech made 356whp/355wtq. Gains of ~40hp and ~50tq over the base k04 map.

Shout out to STP motorsports for letting us use the dyno and Frank for working his magic. Tune has no timing pull, and is going to stay this tame until I get an ethanol gauge where we can keep it always safe for higher power.

Need to confirm this, but is this the highest hp k04 without the use of water/meth documented?

Damn those are impressive numbers. Who ported your turbo? How much psi? Thatís a good gain from adding some e85

Clutch engagement feels more linear, most likely dur to removal of the delay valve. Feels more responsive and I feel more comfortable doing faster shifts.
35k miles 09/10/2016

Picture of removed delay valve. Looks like a mini turbo lol.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but I had a question on this delay valve. Did you follow any tutorials for it? This sounds like something I want to do on my car. How difficult was it to do? Did you need to block it off? Any negative feedback to report on it? Still working correctly?

I did not do a tutorial. When changing the clutch line to stainless, the delay valve was just plugged into the firewall side. I just pulled it out. It has the same fitting as the clutch line so the line fit well in its place. When removing the line from the bleeder valve, there was a little fluid drip. Definitely isn't gushing out. But wear the appropriate gloves as it is brake fluid, which is toxic. Follow the instructions for stainless steel line install.
As for feel, the delay valve is actually a vibration/oscillations dampener. So you will feel more in the pedal as you engage. Its more feedback for the driver basically. Doesn't seem to have any drawbacks from it.
I like the feel some may not. But it can be replaced easily.
You will probably have to bleed the clutch line afterwards as well, since you open the system up.

New engine installed 56327 miles. Long story short, I toasted the block on some poor shifting. So we starting over with that. Fluidampr pulley was removed. Not related to the damage.
Measured clutch disk and it has 8.11mm thickness. Manufacturer spec was 8.4mm so I haven't lost much meat and its holding well. Clutchmasters states to replace the disk close to 6.8mm of material left. Love this clutch.
