Hello Ned,
A truly good explanation, and I am a bit puzzled by the figures given in
inches and not mm. Is KKK a US company from the start ?
What about telling the whole story and include the turbine sizing logic if
there are any?
I have a K27 3770 MXA 9.12 turbo from a S1 and plan on installing this on my
Sport Quattro together with a Motec system. Is the 9.12 refering to a
turbine housing number 9 and what is the " 12 " ?
Or is this information secret with the tuners ?
Best regards Joern, MTM RS
