Bryan has learned well from me. The VF34 is superior for spool up, but is the same turbo. Get the VF34 if you can save your money. You won't be sorry.Wrinkleboi said:i was pretty sure the VF30 and the VF34 are the same size turbo, identical in almost every way, but the VF34 is a ball bearing turbo and spools a bit quicker. the VF34 is also newer and a bit more expensive. somebody correct me if i'm wrong...
The PE1818 and PE1820 are reclipped VF23 and VF22 ball bearing turbos. Pretty big bolt-ons.jmussetter said:Can someone who knows the differences between all the popular turbo's make a list here that tells the good/bad points of each turbo along with their estimated max HP so we will have a guide to look at when picking our turbo's? This would answer a lot of questions on "which turbo is right for me?"
The '22 will probably be a little laggier than the 1818, but not so much as the 1820. Somebody who has used all three of these turbochargers may be able to give you a more informed answer on that though.jmussetter said:I'm thinking that a VF30 or VF22 is probably the two choices I'm going between.
I want something that can handle ~300WHP not much more, but doesn't sacrafice lag TOO much. I'm thinking that a PE1818 and 20 are a little big for me and probably too laggy. Is the VF22 just as laggy or is it a little better than the PE series?
What kind of HP can the VF30 and 22 support?

Did you see my post re: the turbo deal? Nate is just looking for one more buyer to put the order through. You could be that man! $1150 for a VF34 is a good deal, whichever way you look at it. Once we reach the target quota, I don't think it'll be more than a week or two 'til we have the units in hand.PlatinumWRX said:
In my quest for the VF34, I couldn't find any in stock. Hence, I'll be getting a VF30 instead.
