Totally sorry for thread jacking this post.

FriggenT - Yes the hybrid k04 + custom tune route would be more expensive than a p&p k04 but it would still be cheaper than a big turbo kit. This I am ok with. Maybe K04 is enough for me; I'm not sure. Considering this is my daily driver.. it might be more than enough.

Yes I am stage 2; I have all the bolt ons possible so the next step would be a turbo swap of some kind. I guess I just want to be different and not go the traditional way (k04) and I do have a semi local tuner in my state (United Motorsports). Time will ultimately tell as I still have about a year before I heavily consider the turbo swap. And I'm pretty sure traction is such an issue with k04 because of the massive TQ they put out (almost 400 I believe? Maybe 380-90), not the 330whp.

K04 is definitely the tried and true method, no doubt about that. Maybe i'll dare to be different... maybe not

I have the UM tune. I like it, just have a few bugs to work out with the high rpm breaking up, but the car is fast

Are you K04 or stage 2?
