18G turbo? I'm assuming...I hope you didn't buy that turbo already. Because unless it's the same style as your VF48 *STI turbo* (VF40 for the wrx?, I forget). You just wasted a bunch of money. I'd say you can call/search cobb or perrin. To see if either one can get you a map for the upgrade. Because apprantly even perrin has Accessport maps. But, I'm afraid if you bought the wrong style turbo. I hope not. !Notfunny!

I havent heard anything , but you could always flatbed it and have it tuned, I hope the turbo is same flange fitting , and if it isnt just modify it and weld it with the proper one.

there are several kits out there for the 08s if you can track them down that switch to a rotated mount turbo placement. It's a little more involved than a bolt on turbo swap from the older models but in the end you get what you want.

I guess you could rotate it...but in this very forum. Just a few posts down is this. With dumdum's great pics of the differences between the turbos. 2007 STI parts to 2008 WRX
