APR K04 parts.

I'm preparing to install an APR K04 turbo acquired from another member here. However, I am having difficulty finding part numbers or even part specs for a couple things.

Coolant Return/Feed Line Washers - my understanding is that these are crush washers, and one is thicker than the other to space the banjo fitting further away to clear the plug on the other coolant hole. I can't find a part number for the stock washers, much less what APR is using. At this point a part number OR size would suffice.

Diverter Valve mount screws - I believe 1 of the screws needs to be longer than OEM (if the other two AREN'T OEM, please let me know). Once again a part number OR size would be great.

Oh and I don't mean to call APR out but before you tell me to call I have already called APR. I'll give them benefit of the doubt that they are swamped getting ready for Waterfest but the service I have been provided is severely lacking.

Uhh, that is the completely wrong kit.

This would be the more correct one, but it still doesn't address the questions I have.

Thats the link I meant to post. Had the other one in my browser from rs999s sale thread. I would call ECS. They sell another kit with hardware and the turbo so they can probably answer your questions if APR is busy.

I don't think that kit will come with the thick washer needed for the coolant line since it isn't used for the IHI turbo and therefore isn't stock on a TSI. Just something to keep in mind.

"All hardware & gaskets that you would need to install a KO3 or KO4"

oh... that means cars with a stock K04? even so, it says everything.
