    In addition you need engine management, turbo inlet, BCS. Get the 18g or evo16g, those 2 should get you to 300whp, the vf34 might not.

    I have a vf39 in my 05.

    Look at my signature.

    The 18g i heard has lag. I know every turbo has lag, but the 18g has more then usual.

    Here is some help. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1039161 --- http://www.blouchturbo.com/turbos/result/

    My friend has an 18g and lag is not bad at all, it is super overated. Call your tuner and ask him what type of WHP he sees with these turbo's.

    +2 fine whoever is going to tune your car and speak with them. Odds are the 18g wont be to laggy if they tune them often. I have heard of people spooling the 18g's by 3,200-3,500 which isnt all that bad. Big 16g can probaly get you where you want to be power wise through.
