I'm in the middle of buying a house. Once that is finished I'll pull the trigger. I'm thinking I might get two and have one upgraded.

Since you say it has the same shaft as the kO4 then I think I know what he is doing to increase reliability, I seem to recall a plate that only has 270* of support or something like that on KO4s (i'm not a turbo geek) and now that we start talking about KO4 pieces I start thinking about ceramic bearing upgrades that I've heard about from gasser friends.

I'd be willing to ship Frans one for mods.


Here is my quick google results

If he'll do your mods, have him laser balance it while it's over there. Also no turbo geek here. PM him.cheers

Let us know if you have any shaft issues. Frans uses a heavier,stronger shaft than stock in his rebuilds for longevity. Glad you finally pulled the trigger. Post up your install with photos and let us know if you deleted the egr cooler too(looks like the same giant vacuum cannister as mine). I'd prefer to get mine back on sometime. So far so good with mine although a little slow warming up. Try to get an EGT sensor on while you're in there with a McNally combo boost/egt gauge. I haven't yet and it's my next project.

Sorry to interrupt the thread but I checked my VCDS and group 67 is blank with the GO button grayed out. Am I missing something? This is on my 2005 Passat TDI. Thanks.

I wanted to update this thread to inform anyone who has done this mod that Mike at Tdtuning sent me an updated stage 2 file to address my post BV43A limp issues. The car was randomly going limp on hills. If anyone does the BV43A mod, I would recommend the Stage 2 tune he has me flashed at now. The car is better on low end power too. How's yours doing, G60ING?

Are your limp problems gone now?

I thought mine went away with the new intercooler hose, but I've now seen 2 or 3 in the last 3000 miles or so.

So what is different about this vs the K03 on the 1.8t gasser?

K03 is a generic tag. It is the same BW part number as the VW/Audi OEM part.

So far no limp. If you're running the tdtuning stage 2, ask Mike to send you the the same version he sent me. He increased the N75 call for boost in the 2000-4000RPM range. My passat is really strong now and even has less turbo lag. If you haven't put the stage 2 in it, I highly recommend it to take advantage of the BVs potential. Too bad VW didn't put this turbo on from the factory unless maybe the European PD150 or 170 have them or similar. The lower compression BHW is such a great candidate for it. Why does Audi get all the good stuff?

Send me a log of 8 and 11 together and try to make it in the limp mode range. Mine was going limp up grades when I didn't hold constant throttle. Like pasing a truck when I needed extra power but not enough to force it to downshift. Or just massaging the throttle some for no reason. Sound familiar? I always get my tunes and load them myself these days so I don't have to send the ecu off. It's more expensive buying the q loader but worth it to me.

I'll see what I can do, but it may take a couple of weeks. I think I have a driver problem with my VCDS. It will not stay connected for more than a miute or two. I've got to get that figured out before I can take data logs. Plus I'll be on vacation all next week, with me in Mi and all the VWs at home in the driveway.

Yep, VCDS had USB driver issues in the 11.x release last year, they were unstable and comms would keep dropping out.
Release 12 rolled back to older USB drivers, so you need to REMOVE the 11 drivers and then install 12.

See here under Release Notes. I had the same issue earlier this year.

Thanks Charlie. I'll try that. It did seem to start acting up after a version upgrade.
