The S60R is now using a new KKK Turbo. I wonder if this turbo can be swapped for the Mistsubishi unit used in the T5? That would be interesting! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Drew

Re: S60R with new KKK Turbo! ([email protected])

ARGGHHHHHH...they are using KKK just like the VW/Audi/Porsche guys?! <p>It shouldn't be a big deal if the flanges are the standard type. Not exactly expert enough to say which turbos have same turbine flanges, but I now use Garrette turbo instead of Mitsu from factory...they both have T3 flanges. That should answer your question.

The KKK turbo isn't bad at all. It's pretty decent. Currently have a 99 Passat 1.8T.<p>Know any more specs on the turbo itself?<p>Ron

Re: S60R with new KKK Turbo! (B518T)

I wonder if they are using a KO4 or KO3 turbo like Audi or new type of KO-X turbo.<p>IIRC, the B5 A4/S4 uses a KO3 and the TT 225 uses a K04. I know that a lot of those S4 owners have been upgrading to KO4's for much improved performance.<p>-Drew

Blitz also used KKK turbos, but I just like the Mitsu or Garrett ones better. Heheh...easier to understand from the part number.<p>I think A'PEXi use IHI, Trust/GReddy -> Mistu; HKS -> Garrett; Blitz -> KKK....right?<p>Don't know..maybe it's just b/c I haven't tried out the other ones yet.

Prior to 2001, IIRC, the B5 platform was on a K03 turbo. They have since gone with a K03/K04 hybrid to give the increase in HP. They went from 150hp to 180hp stock. The hybrid K03/K04 is the reason for this change.<p>Ron
