What is the best deal anyone has found on the K16 in the states. I'm strongly considering taking the plunge.

I'm also a bit interested what the best deal is. Here in Holland it costs €2643 that's about $3451!!!

Best deal i found for now is on Pumaspeed:

http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-Focus-ST-350RS-Turbo-charger-and-FORGE-ACTUATOR_595.jsp&pic=1

Focus ST 350RS Turbo charger and FORGE ACTUATOR - Ford S Max 2.5 Turbo €1721
Focus ST 350RS Turbo Charger - Pumaspeed
■Ported to a higher degree including the collector throat.
■Balanced to the ultimate tolerance
■Higher rotational stability.
■Billet aluminum Forge actuator for higher lift wastegate lift
■To fully realize the turbos potential the larger bore Milltek Sport down pipe is essential.


The Newer 350RS K04/06 hybrid turbo is a higher specification than the previous 340R unit, with higher spec internals we believe it to be the highest spec unit on the market. It features a fully 35Lb/min Billet compressor wheel with extended tip technology, a CNC re-profiled compressor cover and motorsport thrust bearing.

German tuning specialist HoGe tested the unit back to back against a Wolf 330 unit and noticed a significant power gain at the crucial higher RPM.

PUMASPEED HAVE BEEN WORKING ON NEW MAPPINGS AND CAN NOW SUPPLY HYBRID TURBO MAPPINGS FOR THE STANDARD OE INJECTORS 9360cc) AND NOW THE LARGER 412cc SIZED INJECTORS. BOTH CAN RUN ON THE STANDARD OE FUEL PUMP UP TO 350-360 BHP

It uses the same basic internals as the 340R but has a few crucial differences.
Unique to Pumaspeed.

1, The manifold has been flow ported to a higher degree not just ported. The collector throat and port has been mildly enlarged and flowed to unblock the 'choke' in the system.
2,The balancing tolerance of the whole unit is much tighter, the tolerances are half the 340R.which leads to higher rotation speed to name just one benefit.
3.The actuator is now a Billet aluminum Forge unit, this produces higher lift and increased flow from the waste gate port.We include a mildly stiffer yellow spring to give consistent boost and added waste gate chatter.
4. the Turbine wheel has now a different style of cut back machining that allows higher top end flow.

Just so we're comparing apples to apples, your link above is not for a K16, but for a hybrid K04 turbo.
This is the Pumaspeed link for a brand new K16 turbo, costing £1470 ($2364 USD) shipped, but not including customs/duties/taxes to USA:

That's true, i thought that the 350RS turbo was from a RS500 and would be better then the RS turbo...
But i guess its not the RS500 turbo. But for me still a better deal then i buy it here in Holland.

In the US its proberly cheaper, but shipped to Holland far more expensive. Everything is to expensive over here :(

They haven't started to make K16 turbos in China yet.. :)

But funny thing is that the end part of the wastegate actuator rod doesn't actually look as on my K16. On the ebay picture it more looks like on stock K04 turbo..

Edit: it's K04 stock turbo on the pic, it's not K16!

Lets see what George can do for me $$ wise 1st ;) I have a GT so I'm chatting with some folks in South Africa digging up some info on a V50 auto running a stock gearbox with a large cooler. He apparently has been abusing it for a few months without issue so we'll see! There is always Level 10 in the event of a failure but thats some more coin to consider. Fact is, there will be a K16 sitting on my workbench soon. :)

Somebody has to put the AW55 through the paces and see what kinda fire it can hold! First preperation will be an aftermarket supra gearbox oil cooler. If it doesn't hold up, then Level 10 will have to get involved! :)

It was a very shady situation with the ebay guy. The site states they have 10 and thats what was what was relayed to me the 1st time I called and 20 minutes later when I called back they only had 1 in stock! He also was trying to pressure me on the sale which was odd. So either they are not completely honest or somebody from Croatia bought 9 turbos in the 20 minutes I was off the phone! :rolleyes: :D
