ok, so i plan on getting a new turbo hopefully in the near future, and i was planning on the vf34, a good all around turbo. i just had a few quick questions before i got the turbo.

1) What supporting mods do you suggest i get (fuel injectors, fuel pump, ect.) and by that i mean, what size injectors and brand and stuff.

2) with that size turbo, would it be worth it to rebuild the engine/tranny. i am usually pretty smooth shifting, but sometimes i like to let the RPMs get up there.

3) Should i got with a fmic or tmic with this turbo. If so, please state the brand.

Thanks

If you're using an OTS map, go with the map notes (Cobb doesn't require anything but the turbo/TBE). If you're going with a Protune, contact the tuner and go with what they'd recommend.

STi tranny would be nice, but not necessary

STi TMIC (used, if possible)

vf34 is great, just don't launch and the 5-speed should be ok

yeah, i havent launched my car once, that is what i have my friends i-Vtec for, lol. The cobb site has a map for a vf39, will that work for the vf34? i have stage 2 as of now.

also what turbo, in your opinion, is better for a 2.5 2007 wrx... a vf34, vf 39, or 18g

I'd say 18g but with your trans, I'd stick with a vf39 or vf34.

A vf34 should be used with a vf34 map, a vf39 should be used with a vf39 map. However, you could just have the turbo installed and have the car tuned in the same day.

yeah, thats true, but now come to think of it, i might just spring the extra money for the pro tune. Micha, i see that you live in NJ... do you know if Percision Tunning, located in brick, is dooing pro tunes again??? and i think i might just get the 18g and set up a tranny fund this summer when the big cash for me starts to roll in.
