    hey everyone another turbo question

    for my next upgrade i am thinking about a sti turbo. i want to start taking step by step before i hit my goal for 300 whp+. i am thinking about buying a stock sti turbo which i believe is called the vf-39. i was wondering how much can i look to get on my wrx with a CP. i am also wondering can i go to a stage 3 with that turbo? since it is an upgraded turbo from the wrx Thanks in advance.

    If you are trying to do this cheap you will need pinks, fuel pump, sti tmic, tbe, up-pipe, access port or open ecu maps that has good OTS map, and the Vf39. This is what you will hae to buy to at least run the turbo safely. You should probably make 250-260 with the OTS map and a bit more with a protune with the mods above. Do you have any mods?

    ^I said 250-260 but yes I am talking of whp. This is on a conservative OTS map, a protune and some other mods such as a turbo inlet, ram air intake, and bigger tmic or even a fmic if you plan on going bigger later, you can push 270whp-280whp.

    If you have an 06/07 WRX its not a "must" to get an up-pipe with it being catless already, and the injectors will work fine with the vf-39 as it is high-flowing already.

    If it isn't, forget what i said

    Your #'s should come with a disclaimer on the bottom like the diet pill commercials, those #'s are next to impossible to get in the states.

    yo Rick how are you running so much power and haven't made your engine go KABLOOEY yet? And how hasn't your transmission gone GGGGRRRRPPFFFTTTTTkkkkunkkk yet?

    I'd be afraid to drive my car with that much power and stock internals.

    Very possible it's a race gas tune...he has meth...and it could be a high reading dyno. I wouldnt call his resulsts "normal" by any means.
