......The first stage in the world of turbocharger upgrades is a hybrid replacement turbo. These are designed to be fitted to the standard location and can be fitted without the need to change any other hardware components, this saves the large costs of manifold changes and also allows the use of already upgraded components such as high flow downpipes. TSR offer both a hybrid k03 turbo and a hybrid k04 turbo depending on which is fitted to your vehicle.
