Turbo upgrade on stock intercooler?
 
I'd really like to upgrade to a faster spooling turbo, but i do not want to fork out the money for a front mounted intercooler. I know i might have to upgrade fuel injectors or fuel pump. I was just wondering what is the best turbo I would be able to upgrade to on a stock intercooler or even a sti stock intercooler. Any ideas?:confused:

a front mounted intercooler is not needed for the type of turbo you are looking for. i wouldnt recommend upgrading on the stock intercooler but an sti top mount would work and can be found for around $300 usually. They are not the biggest top mounts but are more efficient than your wrx. you're not really going to find a turbo that spools faster than your stock turbo, but you can make it spool faster if thats what you really want? i assume you want a turbo that can make more power too though, right? for fast spooling turbos that make more power than stock i would recommend the sti vf39/vf43, 16g or 18g even. here's a link that describes a little bit about the different types of turbos.

I run a TMIC with my setup on my TDO6-20G and make 330 HP, you dont need or even want a FMIC if you are trying to keep lag to a minimum.
