Thinking about it, I will let you know if I need it or not.

Does it come with the pan?

so, I blew up the trans last year. I am still tinkering with the Jeep and I might just use this engine for the Jeep project. I haven't been on in months, I might not for a while. This was such a fun engine. If I keep an older VW I will convert it to O2J so the power isn't an issue for the trans

15w when cold 50 when hot is how I read them.

IIRC they are different but both will work for mtdi

I wish we would have had these when I did my MK2 to rounds

Update: I bought this pump and it arrived yesterday.


My first post was wrong -- it's actually tuned for a k14, at I think 15psi. I'm running 15-20, so the difference shouldn't be very big: not nearly as much as if it were set for a k24, I'm sure.

The pump looks very clean. It's a far cry from the last pump that I bought

Yesterday I installed it up to the point of priming it. It's a newer pump with an adjustable pulley. I hadn't used one of these but had no trouble figuring out how to time it.

I had to modify the inner tb cover and take a few parts from an old pump: the LDA lid had a weird adapter for the vacuum hose, which stuck out too far to clear the engine lid, and because the fuel lines are a different diameter I swapped a banjo fitting for the input line (I was able to make the return work with the attached line that came with the pump). I was surprised to find that the lines are different.

When I removed the LDA lid I took a look at the boost pin: It appears to be an AAZ pin that's been ground, and is very aggressive. I also found it interesting that Giles fits a locking band on the fuel screw.

I timed it to 1.01 mm. I'm not sure what Giles likes and maybe I'll talk to him, but this should be in the ballpark.

Later today I'll try to start it. The van has been down for about three weeks now.
Try timing it at .9. That is where it should like it. Iirc the Giles spec is .85 to .95

Engine is still going strong with about 10,000 miles on it...everything else doesn't like it

Thanks for the warning, but I'm confused: Do you mean I'd be running too rich with a k03 (i.e., is that the heat cycle your referring to?)

I'm having trouble finding other turbo options. Andrew et al have described issues with lag when using a K24 or T3 in a van, on account of gearing and weight -- this means sometimes getting stuck at the top of 2nd gear when going uphill.

A K14 seems a good choice, but I've looked and failed to find one.

I might just hold off a good long while until I can get a VNT.


Anyway, if I buy the pump I'll probably just stash it for now, thanks to advice in this thread.

When I saw that Cascade Auto was offering new K03s, I grabbed one. I've got a real motley collection of turbos -- a worn out TDI k03-006 sent to me with a cobbled-together mess of an AAZ, for which I built an adapter and rebuilt myself and don't really trust, a T3 with a compressor that shows some wear (like it was consuming sand), and a proper AAZ k03-003 that I bought used, which, like so many AAZ parts, looks like it spent some time at the bottom of the ocean, and has too much axial play.

So it was nice to get a new turbo. With that said, I think it would be fun to maybe fix the T3 and mount it, just to see how it runs (though of course this is a lot of work, requiring the modification of a motor mount, a new exhaust, and etc., though at least I already have an exhaust manifold.

If I were to do something like this, maybe I'd cut my exhaust and weld in a flange between the 'downpipe'  and the rest, so that I could swap turbos back and forth . . .

Anyway, before I worry about any of this I'll be fitting an intercooler and improved intake, and, oh yeah, I need to figure out why my motor spat oil from the dipstick tube!
I personally can vouch for the holset he221w. The 200wg is very similar. Spools better than the vnt15 on my malone stage 2 mkiv way more boost

agreed, I would love to see what you come up with.

while it would increase performance the K03 is a restriction and shouldn't be used. If used in the long term I would bet money that the precups would fall out because of the heat cycles...it did it with my K24 and 3" all the way back as the K24 was too restrictive. I would spend a little more than the price to recalibrate and buy a real turbo. You absolutely don't have to and it will run better with that pump, but if your idea is long term reliability and reasonable cost I would not do as you are planning.

I don't get on as much as I used to. There is a T25 flange turbo exhaust manifold on ebay for the 8v vw's, that is what I used. They also make a T3 flange one for the 8v vw. The holset I used is T25, it was approx. 100.00 when I bought it but the last I saw they were about 175.00 now, the T3 were much cheaper. Don't ask me why.

Yes, this engine destroyed my clutchnet red clutch and broke the bolts in the cv of the drivers side 100mm cv which threw the cv into the cryo treated ags trans and knocked a hole in the case...if someone wants over 1,000 dollar cryo treated arp bolt kit trans I would sell it pretty reasonable, just needs a new case or this one welded.

I found an almost-new Giles pump, injectors, and lines for sale. The price is quite good and I've really wanted to try one of these.

My biggest concern is that the pump is set up for a k24 and I'll be running a k03. I would hope that I could just crank down the fueling a bit, and anyway maybe one day I'll get a k14 or k24.

Any ideas about how this will run? I should ask Giles, I'm sure, but I decided to ask here first.
You won't have any need for a Giles pump if you are running a restriction like the ko3

Look anywhere you normally buy manuals for a Bentley manual
