To unleash the true potential of your 2.0T, the K04 turbo that is equipped on the Golf R / S3 is a much more robust choice than the factory equipped IHI (KO3) turbo, which runs out of breath mid-way in the RPM range. The HPA K04 Hybrid upgrade offers a higher operational boost range, while still working with the stock components; making for a natural and cost-effective upgrade. This K04 Hybrid conversion allows for a seamless integration, without the need for custom fabrications or aftermarket diverter valves.
HPA has now developed their own high performance K04 Hybrid Turbo conversion that allows the factory K03 diverter valve to be installed in the OEM location, without a CNC port adapter. HPA's K04 Hybrid turbo assembly is one of the most advanced units available in North America, featuring many benefits over the competition, including:
- All-inclusive hardware kit
- Cast design for efficient heat transfer
- Lightweight billet aluminum compressor for quicker spooling.
**Please note: Aftermarket downpipe recommended. If OEM downpipe is used, the flange for the turbo may need to be drilled out to fit.**
**Note: FSI engines should have upgraded high pressure fuel pump and injectors when using this turbo upgrade.**
**OEM turbo inlet / intake plumbing will be reused on the longitudinal engine vehicles**
