You need fuel injectors, fuel pump and a Unichip at least to run a VF22 to max capacity. Obviously race fuel is mandatory. Boost pressure means nothing. It's HP capacity you're looking for. I believ it is worth 360 hp or so but it is super laggy. Try a VF30 instead or a PE1818F. Much better choices. The PE1818F is 400 HP capable.

Hey God.. am i still correct by saying the PE1820 is used more for DRAG racing? And the PE1818 for regular street use.

1820 = more lag better top end

1818 = better spool less power then 1820

Am i correct?

Why did YOU choose the 1818??

That is correct although the difference between the two is very small. I got the 1818 because I ws the one of the first to get one and it seemed like the better choice for me (drag rcer extrordinaire I am not). Remember they both have the same flow rating, just different housing is all. I'm pleased with it but for the STi project I will be using an HKS GT3240 600 HP turbo.

So for a hardcore dragger like me an 1820 will do the job rite :D hehehe

Are you still doing that CUSTOM kit for the WRX? the one you told me i would have to bring in the car and you would have to custom bend piping for :D

Ah yes, the HKS kit. Of course. That is available no problem. I have all the piping and flanges necessary. Just need to order the turbo and external Tial wastegate and we can install. We can go with a 480 HP 3037S or perhaps you would like an HKS GT3240 600 HP model? I'll be using that one on my STi when it comes in.
