Re: Water cooled turbo conversion-ur-quattro
>The K-26 is also available in water-cooled. K-24 is a smaller diameter turbo which I understand was developed for the 20v engine. Reaches boost level faster, but not capable of as much total boost as the K-26.
So the K-24 gives you max boost sooner, K-26 gives you much more of it
once it gets going.>>

What is your intended purpose for the UrQ? If heavy track use is your
intention, a K26 is likely a winner.
If, on the other hand, you intention is street use, I'm with Glen that
the K24 is the way to go. My 85 UrQ already had a K24 when I bought it.
(IA stage 1 mods, but otherwise stock) Compared to other UrQ's I'd
driven, throttle response and general drivability were significantly
improved. The K24 easily puts out 2.0 bar... maybe not as efficiently
as a K26... but it spools up _much_ quicker. Perfect for the street.
