Does anyone have any idea where i might be able to find a vf23 turbo, new or used. preferably for under $2000. I am in need of a new turbo and would love to find one of these or something equivilent to it. As always, any information is greatly appreciated
Okay are those easily bolted on to the 02 wrx or do they require modification? Also at what point do i need cams? because i already have some and if i dont need to put them on great, but i would like to know when they become necessary.
Its not that i want a small turbo, i want one with potential to reach 350 whp while still holding a decently low boost threshold. At this point i am only aiming to reach 300hp due to the fact its a dd. thats why i was thinking the vf23, it fills the criteria i want to obtain. Also thank you for lettinge know i wont need the cams. that will definatly save me some time.
VF23 is not considerably larger than the ones I mentioned. It's smaller. It has a larger exhaust housing, but smaller compressor side. The modern VFs will make more power, though the 23 will be negligibly more responsive.
Another point is that you're only talking about a +/-10 whp difference between a VF24 (smallest Impreza VF turbo) an a VF22 (the largest Impreza VF turbo).
You don't need cams until you're pushing something closer to a 30R (100 hp more than you want to make).
Okay thankyou very much to all of you who responded. im quite a noob with turbos but im doing my best to become educated so you patience is very much appreciated. if i come across another uncertinity i have ill know who to ask.
