BAR-TEK® TIP!

BAR-TEK® tips!

We recommend to fill up with 102 octane fuel. This will give your engine more power because it knocks less! The turbocharger should not be too old. Engine in good condition. The basis must be in good condition. Check the red pressure hose on the turbocharger, it's often leaky because it can't remove the heat from the manifold.

You need this extra to make it last:

To get the extra power on the road you need a sports clutch, because the original one can't transfer the power. For the conversion to K04-001 turbocharger you have to install a 3" downpipe and our upgrade air mass meter.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

We recommend that you buy the Level 3 kit right away. With the stage 2 kit, without modified injectors and upgrade manifold the performance gain is not quite as high compared to the chip tuning. This is because the injection times with the original nozzles are at the limit.
