Is there such a thing as a "K25" turbo?
My mechanic has built a turbo modeled after a K24 he just installed into my
'87 5kcstq (124K, 1.8 bar) and I just took a ride in his '86 5kcstq (200K,
1.8 bar). In the short time and distance I rode in the car, he had it up
6000 rpm and it felt pretty damn fast. I joking referred to it as a "K25"
What's a good way to evaluate something like this objectively? So far the
turbo's holding together and he basically drives like a maniac compared to
me. BTW he's a Porsche and Audi mechanic (German Motorsports, Fremont, CA)
and routinely rebuilds (balancing sourced outside) turbos.
lots of I-5 Audis
