02 Ej255 questions!
SO I have an 02 wrx did the ej255 swap its fully built have 1000cc injectors sti top mount and 300 fuel pump. However my vf39 blew up. I am trying to sell the car. And Vf39s are kind of expensive, at least where I've looked. I was wondering if a big 16g turbo or a 20g turbo would be good without me having to do anything as far as modifying anything. Also have heard 18g might be a viable option. I'm looking to keep price down because I don't have a lot of money to spare but also get a descent to better replacement.
Thanks so much :D

If you wanna stay close to the vf39 you could find a vf43 it's an upgraded vf39 better waste gate and something else just can't remember off th top of my head. The vf43 was used in the 07 sti

And that will fit fine?

Fit as in? It's practically the same turbo as your previous one. Wait for some other guys to chime in they should be able to help a little more

If VF39s are "expensive" (WHAAAAAT?!), then why are you looking at turbos in the $700-$1,200 range that cost 3 to 4 times as much? WTF

On top of that, the ONLY turbo you can buy without needing to pay for another tune is another 39.

I could care less if it is a used turbo or not. I could care less if its an ebay turbo. I NEED TO SELL IT! This is simply something to get it running so I can put it back on the market. I had bought a used VF39 for 300 and it blew up on me so im looking for something more trustworthy

Then you're going to have to spend significantly more.
