You must have missed missed his other thread, his turbo is pretty bad!
08 WRX not running right, stalling, no boost.

Any luck on the VF52? They were always too expensive even used because of the demand all of us '08 guys put on them wanting to upgrade. New was over $1000, and at that point, you might as well spend a couple hundred more and get something better. I'm looking forward to seeing what you find at a reasonable price. Any turbo upgrade is going to cost you a tune anyway, so if you think the VF52 might not reach your end power goals, I'd go bigger now and save the hassle and money later.

Uh,if you switch to a front mount, any 02-07 turbo will fit your car.

Look for a used turboxs fmic kit(600) and a used 16-20G(550-1000).

If you look hard, you'll spend as much as the vf52.

Also, yes...
go to

Hey everyone, alot of people have replied, and i havnt been notified that often in email strangely. I just got my tax return and a new job starting next week so ive been looking about everyday but no luck. Ive found a few 20g's and one vf52 but they were out of my price range of what I got to spend now, so I'll probally have to save a paycheck or two before I get my hands on something. Its a rough search for sure.
