    Right I am going to start building a leon 1m race car. It's currently a 1.8t 180 with a ko3s. But do I go ko4 set up or ko3 hybrid. I don't want lag. Some one has recommended a beach buggy turbo k300. I am Lost on all this turbo stuff. Any help and info is welcome

    I suppose the ko4 will hit higher peak bhp but even they are governed to around the 300bhp mark

    Ko4 hybrid maybe?

    Garrett setup if money allows it.
    Gt28 = 260-360whp
    Gt30 = 300-450whp.
    Ko4 hybrid = 300 crank.

    Seems ok till you look at the overall cost, 5-6k for a kkk set up is crazy. Agreed replacement turbo will be cheaper but a Garrett on track won't be beaten. More lag "tiny depending on setup" but on track lag shouldn't make a difference.
    I see the hybrid as a cheaper option but now a day it's silly money.
    I can buy an old jabba set up now for 500. Mani,down, injectors and td05. Mani is new.
    Many bt setups go pretty cheap so I don't see the point in wasting money on something you will get board with and want an upgrade. 64 isn't all that.

    Think I gonna go ko3 hybrid. . Is a ported and match cast manifold up to the job or a purpose made one worth the money. Not even going to consider the £200 jobs on eBay. Heard many stories of them cracking.
    So next up bbt k300. Or I seen some ko3 with rs6 Internals. What's people running and how's it been
    Oh yeah... Happy New year all

    If it's a straight race car then just run proper ALS, no issues with lag then.

    If you just want a decent turbo with no other hassle then Compressor Racing have an awesome billet KO3S for sale right now.
