Thanks! I couldnít flash it as originally planned. Somehow had outdated software, but they were quick to rectify it and once I get some free time this week all re-attempt with the flash. Iím actually impressed with it having a data logging feature. Didnít realize it had the option.

On a side note did you have experience with GIAC?

So far itís been about a week with the 93 octane stage 2 file and itís been awesome! So much better over the stage 2 GIAC tune I had. I was losing my mind with it. Now my car finally drives normal again and the tune is so smooth! Glad I jumped on the Black Friday deal.

There's not a lot of talk about the IE k04 here, or anywhere really. It's not even listed on the front page, but that appears to be outdated as the intake is listed as coming soon.

Anybody have any insight on this turbo? Anything that differentiates itself from the rest of the k04 kits?

I haven't seen anything... it looks like an APR k04 kit. It's pretty much the exact same thing. It doesn't say that it's been ported, and the pictures don't show that it has been, maybe a better, or upgraded wastegate spring? Idk..

Itís an OEM BW from the Golf R thatís been machined to have the factory location for the diverter valve and to fit the TSI. Not ported and unsure of the wastegate spring. Iíve talked to the CEO about the turbo. They actually have a company that they work with to have the turbo P&P and the compressor wheel modified and then rebalanced and set to spec if desired. Obviously at additional costs for a custom turbo. I have their stage 2 tune and intake and have nothing but good feedback and their customer support is top notch. Iíll most likely go this route if the time ever comes for an upgrade.

I see...I'm just kinda taking my time as I consider going k04. If I do it I want to go with the one that'll give me the least amount of problems, and there's a couple I'd like to avoid. I don't like CTS's customer service, I hate APR even more, and the quality control on the HPA turbo doesn't seem very good. Not interested in something like a f23 or mabotech. Not sure what other options there are, but that pretty much leaves IE and Unitronic. I think I like that IE uses the stock DV location, which also makes it a little bit cheaper than Uni.

IE is pretty much at the top of the list for me, if this is something I decide to do. It's nice to know they'll P&P it too.

Iím in the exact same boat as you. Luckily there are a lot of feedback on the other turbos out there and I have to agree that avoiding CTS turbo and APR is the best decision. APR is over priced and there software seems questionable for long term drivability. CTS Turboís design sucks with that stupid silicone coupler. Someone just had to replace it on their car and was a pain to get it replaced it seemed.

The IE seems the reasonable choice for the price and less hoses getting routed around your engine bay. Unitronic seems nice but you are then stuck having to get it with their software.

It would be an easier jump for me since I already have their software and flashing dongle. Even if you didnít want to have their outsourced company P&P it there are others to choose from that do great work.

After reading through multiple forums and talking with IEís CEO it seems like a P&P and maybe even having the compressor wheel clipped might be a good route to go. I donít really have a desire to go big turbo and do an engine build. At that point Iíd rather just upgrade to a different vehicle.

IE has great customer service and stand behind their products. They are car enthusiasts just like us.

Aye, I only have their air intake, but I've followed them for a bit and I've seen they're a stand up company with excellent customer service. Every product they make seems to be well made with reasonable pricing too. Definitely one of the better companies out there that make and sell parts for our cars.
