[Crossposted at C30Crew]

Hi y'all,

I'm contemplating a turbo upgrade on my V70R and would thus have an extra stock K24 turbo.

Would it be a good idea to replace the stock K04 turbo on my C30 PLE? I gather the usual path is something like a K16 but I have no idea how that compares with K24.

Specifically, what are the other parameters on the C30 that would need work as a result?/right now the C30 is bone stock Presumably bigger intake and downpipe, LSD, anything else to consider? I would like to avoid having to learn about sleeves....

Thanks,

Lev

It will not be a direct swap with the C30, the K16 is pretty much the only easy swap.
You would probably need a custom down pipe fabricated...

Not to mention the complications with tuning. We've barely got the K16 to perfection.

Honestly, I think you're better off cleaning up the K24 and using it as a paper weight.

I got the same answer from the C30Crew guys--- K24 is mounted differently than K04/K16 and would need custom everything. Sounds like a bad idea.
