Possible to fit golf K04 to the Ibiza?

    Hey Peeps,

    Very quick question here... Been looking at these on eBay and was curious as to how different they actually are to the Ibiza turbos?!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VW-GOLF-BORA-...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2557459fad

    I think the exhaust manifolds are the same but I'm guessing it would need a different downpipe to hook up to my ibiza exhaust, i'd need a different TIP and charge pipe runs a different way.

    Thoughts?

    That's a K04-001, same fitment as K03

    K04-023s found on LCRs, TTs etc are not a straight fit. A search will reveal all

    So you think that's pretty much a bolt on replacement perhaps just needing a larger TIP?

    Sorry mate, I've done a lot of searching today but a lot of the threads become quite convoluted and off topic and become distracting. I'm continuing to read but just thought I'd try and clear up the basic things first :)

    Yeah valid point Chris. I'm interested because a friend has just fitted one to his MK4 GTi after his stock turbo seized up and from having a nose into it, it doesn't seem that bad.

    May not last 100K but could still be worth a go :)

    i bought one after reading that it may go pop after 10 miles of fitting i thought :censored: that and put it on ebay did not want to risk it, so i think when i have some money spare after paying jake for the respray may just put a ths manifold on and run it on a stage 2 map unless i bugger off to austrailia again:cartman:

    is it me or is that ad claiming it can produce 250-260bhp... its a k03s basically.

    a k04-023 look completly different.

    After Robbie had mentioned it should fit, I did then presume it to be, essentially a K03s.

    A K04-023 needs 3" down pipe, different exhaust and oil return with the LCR TIP does it not?

    k04-023 needs a completely different type of downpipe, it exits the side not the rear, has different fittings, needs different manifold, TIP etc etc etc

    OK, well this is seeming like a option then. What's the deal with the charge pipe, would I need to run the Golf GTi option or is there a better LCR option?

    Stealth Racing were telling about how much "fun" the K04-023s are to fit because of what Bill just mentioned. The exhaust/down pipe has clearance issues apparently.

    yeah will be a custom job on exhaust ect but every thing else should fly together, pics of my turbo kit will be up soon and ov course bill will be mapping it again;). id go for lcr route mate ask bowen for pics i made his the lcr route much better than draging pipework.

    can i ask you a question mate whys your car diffrent colour on front ect

    If I were you I'd start searching for K03 hybrids or see Badger5's section where he has a detailed post of what's needed to achieve the same power for less hassle.

    I've spoken to CRT about getting a K03 hybrid up with RS4 internals I think but it's a lot of money. About 500 notes and I think it came in it 300bhp capable.

    lol Dave it's a long story but essentially, I damaged the front end and there happened to be a silver cupra in the breakers yard. That was 18+ months ago and I'm still not overly annoyed with the combo. Constantly getting mixed reviews but having a standard colour scheme is on the list :)
