Will I loose top end even compared to my 225 hp, 0.95 bar setup? Is the 
S4 turbo that limited in capacity? Here in Sweden, the upgrade kits for 
the S4:s give ~280 hp and that equals to some 1.35 bar.

I have a S4 turbo installed on my 85 ur-q. This car also has the IA Stage II CPU, K&N, open exhaust and W5DTC tri-electrode plugs. The S4 turbo was *BY FAR* the best upgrade I have done and was also the most recent. I HIGHLY recommend the S4 turbo upgrade! If there is any change in top-end performance with the S4 turbo installed on this car, the top-end is much *BETTER and STRONGER* Vs the stock K26 on this car. This is with 2 Bar/15 PSI boost. The mid-range response, low-end torque and spin-up/lack of turbo lag is simply wonderfull! On this setup the S4 K24 turbo is a win-win all the way around. Keep in mind that this is with the stock ur-q cam and that the high-end performance may very well be different with a more agressive cam with some top-end. (the stock cam SUX) With a better cam (I will get my 270 Schaeffer installed someday) the hybrid turbo may very well be better. I do plan to find out for myself, someday.
