Blouch Turbo has the 08+ wrx turbo hook up...

Blouch turbo or better yet. Blouch Performance Turbo has it on their website. 3 turbos for the 2005-2009 Legacy GT and 2008+ WRX.

Subaru Legacy GT 480XT Turbocharger rated at 480 crank hp
Subaru Legacy GT 440XT Turbocharger rated at 440 crank hp
Subaru Legacy GT 380XT Turbocharger rated at 400 crank hp

So, if you want to stay stock tmic and set-up. They offer three stages of turbo...hopefully that means they're definatly making more turbos your model year.

They're supposedly releasing the 18 and 20g xt's for the LGT layout at the end of the month as well.

Yep, looks like the 480 is a tiny bit larger than the std. layout 20g-xt though (48lb compared to 47lb). I'm hoping a dom3xtr LGT layout is on the way. I'm starting to get concerned my goals won't be met with the 20g.

Why do you say that? A dom 3.0 would pretty much be a GT30-35 series turbo. I just want my tuner and blouch to make the Dom 3.0 XTR twin scroll for my turbo layout. That'd make me covert to the dark side...

Well I'd like to hit and hold 400 for a few thousand rpms.. I feel like the 20g may run out of breath, whereas the dom3 should be able to keep pulling. The only downside is the cost... those things are pricey, but still better than paying 1800 for an avo380 that is basically a couple lbs bigger than the vf52.

True....but, the Dom 3.0 will spool slower than a 20G. If that's a concern to you or not. I personally don't want a hideously slow spool. Maybe if I ran the 2.7L crawford block I'd run a Dom 3.0 or 4.0...but, that'll probably never happen. Here's to hoping the twin scroll option pulls through at some point.
