    They are pretty much the same thing. The 48 is standard on the '08 STi and the 43 is standard to the '07. The only difference that people seem to be noticing is that the oil lines are bolted differently. Although, it seems on average, people are putting down SLIGHTLY better numbers on the 48. Nobody seems to really think one is better than another. Just the same as the VF43 versus the VF39. Pretty much the same thing. For a while people said the 43 had a bigger hotside but it seems that was found not true.

    Like I said, the differences can't be noticed visually. I am also a member on NASIOC and there have been several comparison threads between the 39 and the 43. My recollection is that all of the people came to the conclusion that they are pretty much the same thing. I don't think I or anyone else could say that one is better than the other. The 43 may be less prone to the wastegate crack but don't quote me on that. Maybe search that tid bit a little. Keep in mind, the 43 was standard to the '07 which truly had the same HP rating as the VF39 sti's. The reason there was a rating difference is they switched over to a new standard of rating power. Thanks!

    The biggest difference you will find is the 43 has a better wastegate housing. The VF39's was prone to cracking.

    I don't know if I would quite say that. See below.

    VF39 and VF43 directly compared! - NASIOC
