Depends on what price you getting the IHI, I opted to upgrade my k03 to a hybrid after it blew. PM me if you need more info.

Ok , so i took the plunge and got the IHI fitted , paid R3500 with fitment. still need to load a custom map for it , but its running well with the stock file.car feels more free as my old turbo was cooked. Im really enjoying the turbo flutter as i didnt hear this with the KO3.

+1 , from what i read up , the K03 holds up better on Top end.
I dont really feel that big off a difference in my car after the IHI was fitted as the car is still running with the stock MAP ,
