    Hey Guys, I'm in need of a preferably used K04-15, Frankenturbo or GPOP K03/K04 Hybrid. My turbo is very much on it's way out, and I'd rather upgrade now then spend more money later. Trying to see if anyone has a used one that they need out their garage before I buy a new one. Shipping to...

    So I am preparing to purchase the F21L kit for my 1999 AEB Passat. I'm currently looking for a tune and would like to get your input! The tune I'm currently looking at is the Stage 3 tune from United Motorsport for the B5 A4 found here. Do you think the 630cc injectors are overkill for this...

    Living down under in Australia and with an older style ECU I have as some of you already know, found it difficult to get a tune for my B5 Frankenturbo install. I gave up on local and UK tuners - complete waste of time - and most US tuners were not interested either tuning for an older style ECU...

    If been researching a ton on upgrading to a frankenturbo but keep worrying. I ask people with this Turbo. Did you have to replace your center cart? I know slappy offers them for 150 which is awesome but it seems like most threads I read say something about tTurbo needing to be replaced. I...

    Spoke with guys over at um. I think I'm gunna go with their tune. They have a 440 file that produces 250 whp and a 630 file that produces 290 whp. They said either tune would work nicely. He favors the 630. What would you run? Both tunes require stock fpr. Price difference of tune is...

    So first I have a 2000 passat 1.8t atw with the wideband conversion with a frankenturbo f21. At first I had a tune made for my car and I was able to hit full boost (26 psi) by 3200-3300 rpm. Now I switched tunes since the last tuner disappeared and wouldent respond to pm's and had some issues...

    Ive been searching for a while but I'm looking for some newer/current feedback. Has anyone been running a frankenturbo or gpop without much effort? I am not a mechanic and cannot troubleshoot myself. I need a Turbo for my aeb that will be as turnkey reliable as it is now. I read that k04...

    I am starting this thread to publish a conversation and invite others to weigh in if able. With tools and code blocks for tuning our B5 and B5.5 ECUs becoming more and more accessible every day to the tinkerer and tuner alike, I think this forum needs a few conversations or perhaps a whole...

    At the beginning of 2012 this was pretty much a stock K03 setup albeit with an Austrian Stage 1 chip I bought off eBay for about $120 and installed by soldering a socket adapter in place of the stock EPROM. Yes I can hear the jeering condemnation and assertions that a chip off eBay couldn't be...
