    Is 250 at the wheel BHP possible with a KO3? If so, what would I need? I know KO4 is the usual way, but it all adds up to a lot of dollars!

    I'm planning to modify my Passat 3BG (2005-model) with a Audi S4-upgrade turbo (K03) (and intercooler, pipes and all). But a friend of mine says that a S4 upgrade turbo can't manage this, and that I need a K04-015, Upgrade-Turbo. Is that true?

    Can anyone tell me what the estimated cost would be and what I would need to make 350-400bhp out of my 1999 1.8l turbo? Has this been done or is it not realistic? I know PsoughtAftr made 380ish. What parts would I need in order to make this kind of horsepower? Is this a $$$$$$ thing to try to do...

I thought that diesel consumption should be about 50 MPG but my on board-computer shows: - less or up to 20 MPG just after start, - 25-35 MPG during normal drive in town. - I think once i have even seen 40MPG, I haven’t tested...

    Quick question: at the start of the B5.5 (ie early 2001), did they offer the saloon with the 115 bhpp diesel engine previously in the B5? I understood that all B5.5s had either the 100 or the 130 PS engine, with - on the early models - the red DI indicating the higher output. Am I wrong? Car...

    All I can say is WOW!! 8) It was owned by a friend of my co-worker, so I was allowed to take her for a spin. And spin I did. Doughnuts are fun. Anyways, that thing is wayyyyy too fast. If I drove that every day I'd either be dead or in jail. Sorry, I had to share! :lol:
