I have no BTDT, but I'm fairly certain that a K24 cannot push as much air as
a K26.  The K26 is a larger unit than the K24.

Absolutely agree on this point.  Great upgrade to a pre Mac-14 Q.  Should
run nicely on 1.8 Bar.

On the altitude issue, I just take it easy.  I drive in Mammoth with the 1.8
bar mod , alt +8,000',  slowly.
