Blouch ported "Small"16G or VF48??

Hi I was wondering which would be a better turbo to have with my mod list because my vf34 crapped the bed and I just spent a bunch of money on the motor I dont really have enough to go big turbo, and I can get either for 700 or less and I was wondering which would be better.

UPDATE:
Well Now I am the Proud Owner of an FP Green (Found it on Craigslist)

Neither, while the VF series can be rebuilt it costs a lot, the small 16g wont give the power gains you want either but is cheaper to rebuild. In your case I would look on some local forums and see if you cant find perhaps a 18g or a evo16g. Those are bigger and will give you a higher output with supporting mods unlike either one of those turbo's your asking about.

Thats just my opinion though if you can hold out for a while. Each can be had for under 700 easily used.

I still would look around, I almost bet you could find a bigger turbo for what your going to spend, it will keep you happy for a while till you get what you want and then you can turn around and sell your old one for a decent amount.

Is there any way you could run safely with a stock WRX turbo? I see them go for around $100 used ALL the time on craigslist, and it would really suck to spend 6 or 7 hundred now on a VF, when you could save just a few hundred more and go with a FP 18 or 20, especially since you are almost setup for it. Even if you have to keep your foot out of it to keep it safe, that is what I would do 100 times over before spending 3 quarters of a good turbo's pricetag on something just to get me by.

If you worry about the spool, wait and save some more. or buy the green and get the GrimmSpeed PNP exhaust manifold GrimmSpeed that would help your spool. buy the green. then save up and get PNP. but thats just IMO

Eh, possibly PnP might help some what, but to be honest hes only going to see minimal gains of only a few hundred RPMs at best.

well...I have decided that I will have it PnP'd and sent to FP to become HTA as well as upgrading my header and buying a larger uppipe and hopefully full spool will be around 3500

That is true, but it is better then nothing. and it will help flow air alot better and you will get more power to. and being at full spool at 3500 is alot better then being at full spool at 3800. but this is all IMO

EJ205 and a Green? I'd expect full boost in the 4500RPM range. Lagtastic.
