    2016 wrx big turbo question?

    Is there any way to do a big turbo set up without the outrageous price of ETS turbo kit? My uncle has an evo and they took the stock turbo and changes some internalls and I think borred it out a little bit. Would something like this be possible or even just buying a big turbo without having to do the whole kit

    A good quality "big" turbo is going to cost around $2000 by itself.. then you're going to need waste gates, new manifold, and all the other supporting modifications.

    Just save up to do everything you want....The right way. Don't rush into anything. Learn your car. Do modifications a little bit at a time. "Just in case you want to change something along the way you'll know what it is. You will learn your car better as you add parts. Rather than just slamming everything on it at once, not liking the way it feels.

    I have a 16 wrx as well. I'm saving up money for supporting mods before anything.

    There was a company making an upgrade oem turbo, but so far the results aren't that impressive.

    The platform is still too new. Give it time.

    Currently Grimmspeed is working on a kit. But I'm willing to bet it will be about as expensive as the ETS Kit. But at least it will drive competition.

    Your next best bet is the Steamspeed turbo upgrade which is also in development.

    I'd expect in the next 2-3 years there will be a lot more options for the FA20 crowd, but currently if you don't want to spend a ton of money, the stock turbo is probably your best bet.

    The SteamSpeed kits are available to purchase. From what I read it's a direct swap with the factory turbocharger, no other parts needed.
