even a 16G is probably going to be more power than your Stock tranny can handle long term. Plenty of ppl break those at stock power levels let alone with an upgraded turbo. Still, that shouldn't phase you much. The engine internals will be fine with any of the turbos listed.

note a "big 16G" is not the same as an "evoIII 16G". Let me give you an example:

These are from FP (forced performance)
16G = 510 CFM
"Big 16G" = 550 CFM
EVOIII 16G = 575 CFM
18G = 605 CFM

Their 18G actually costs the same as their EVO-III! on the same TD05 housing for all these turbos.\

*EDIT* oh, and the 20G usually uses the larger TD06 housing which will make it spool a little slower. If your main concern is lag, you should stick with TD05 based turbos like the 16G and 18G

04 STi 16G powered lagless fun

Too bad we can't get a "sleeper 16g" for our cars, that would be killer. Not to say that we can't, but I haven't seen one yet.


Just for those of you that don't know what one is, it's a 16g with a 20g wheel in it.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Hey guys,
I too am interested in getting a bigger turbo to where I only need a fuel pump and a bigger TMIC. I was looking at FP and was wondering if someone could explain to me the WRX 18T Upgrade. I read it as you send them your stock turbo and the basically send you the same turbo that is clipped and ported? Did I read that right? And if so, what kind of gains would I see from this versus getting an 18G? Thanks guys.

Your bast bet would be to call them and ask. Robert's good with that sort of thing. He'll set you straight.
