haha i expected to hear the 16g answer. I agree with you guys completely, the EvoIII 16 is more reliable, its rebuildable, and offers almost the same "quick spool" as the VF34, and has more top end and mid range punch. I had a nice setup in mind to run en EvoIII 16g, but theres a few problems with that. Id need a larger intercooler with the 16g, and Id need an aftermarket BPV to hold the psi the 16g puts out. Also, with the VF34 i can run a Cobb tuned map until i can get to a shop to get a protune. With the 16g, id have to put all the parts on and then immediatley go get the protune. The EvoIII 16g is what i really want, i guess you could say im settling for the VF34. Sorry for such a long post.
