Re: Do I need to change the DP when I upgrade from a K03 to a K04? (SkodaRS)

No, It would be nice. I know how it goes, in the real world it's a piece at a time.

My k04 would have lined right up with the stock DP, however I already had an ATP 3" so I stuck with that http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

A little correction - you will need AWD inlet pipe or you may use NS or ABD TIP

If you are talking about a K04 then you will need the TIP from either an AWD or a NS TIP for AWD the AWW and later K03 turbo use a different TIP.
So here is the breakdown.
1) AWD replacing with:
K04 you can use your stock TIP or replace with a NS AWD TIP
AWW K03 you will need an AWW TIP or NS AWW TIP (I think that they make one)
2) AWW replacing with:
K04 you will need an OEM AWD TIP or a NS AWD TIP
AWD K03 why would you do this?

As far a DP's are concerned your stock DP will bolt up just fine with either an AWW K03 or a K04-001. Also all of the aftermarket DP's designed to fit the stock turbo will bolt up just fine as well.
Do you need to change the DP? No you don't have to but it will improve things. If you have to choose between changing the DP wehn installing a new turbo and changing the TIP then I would do the TIP since it is harder to install than the DP and it woud make sense to do this when the turbo is out of the car. You can then change the DP at a later time when you have the cash flow.

Hey Tobyc, if you will carefully read his original post and following replies, you will find out he has ATP DP and he would not install AWW K03, but K04. I wish you can also read rather then just write a long replies.

he also has a Skoda, so I know that I'm talkin' out of my ass, don't know for postive if their DP's and exhaust outlets are exactly the same as our AWD, AWW cars.
They probably are but somebody else with a Euro model could answer this more definitively

Hey 20V1.8Tnut bite me. There seemed to be some confusion going on and I though that I could help clarify some things even though it did get a little off topic.

AWP K03 more reliable than AWW K03...unless someone is giving you one. They're both "sports" but the AWP is improved design.
And I agree, the "off topic" info is good for many. If someone is trying to help/clarify, then it's not just hot air.
