anyhow: With no E, you should be good to go chica.... Add E and you might as well get bigger injectors.

I wonder if Blouch is doing any mods to VFs yet...

Similar thing happened to me, thought it was my browser? But then I edited my post and re-pasted the link and it corrected itself? And I do not plan on running E85 just yet, wanting to avoid upgrading my injectors remember

I am surprised as well, maybe the larger vendors just think it's a waste of resources and R&D for such a small set up. Although, Blouch used to sell the TD04-19T. One consistent thing I do read on NABISCO is that most feel the VF's are useless on a 2.5L as an "upgrade" and the next step is to slap on an 18g/20g even for a daily driver.

Very few of us who like to throw money away pushing tiny snails to their limits. There is a reason why I had a "bastard 20g" (20g cartridge in 14b housing) for such a long time in my GSX. I am not looking for a highway monster, or high HP numbers. I would be happy to crack 300awhp.

That TD04 that Blouch rebuilds is a Mitsu turbo and not a VF turbo. VF turbo's suck period, they suck for these cars and any other car they put them on. Just step up to a nice 18g for a 2.0L and 20g for a 2.5L.

^ LOL see! Pretty sure with though that the TD04 upgrade was to the compressor wheel as it was ported/clipped and PnP job. Folks sent their TD04 in and got their turbo rebuilt back as the 19T. Pretty sure TD04 is MHI to begin with...

No 20g for me right now.

Hey mate, I just picked up a vf22 for next to nothing, so I grabbed it for my 2.5 ltr. The more I read, the more i think I might be upgrading later...

What turbo would you recommend for someone who wants to squeeze the most out of his stock internals?

I have supporting mods on the way, 3" tbe, fuel pump, bigger tmic...

But I can't afford forgies yet and want to t as much as I can until I consider a rebuild...

Hearing a lot of good things about Blouch Dominators...

Blouch are good turbos, but in the end if you don't the money for a rebuild yet, I'd highly recommend sticking with something on the smaller side until you get a build motor. 20g would be idea for getting a good amount of power out of the 2.5L. If your in a bind for cash and can get a VF22 for cheap that's fine, just don't expect much out of it

Cheers mate. I'm hoping I won't be too disappointed in the build, as I'm going from stock to the vf22, with 3"tbe, bigger tmic and fuel pump... Surely I will notice a considerable difference from stock... But no doubt I'll get bored with any setup eventually.

So, do you mean a 20G on stock internals?

A VF48 is the best turbo they've made so far in my opinion.

Yes a 20g with stock internals. It goes without saying that even a lightly modded car can have issue, but I have seen many 20g powered 2.5L live for a decent amount of time.

So... Is that the Td05 20G???

Sorry, there are a lot of 20Gs coming up on my searches...

I personally run a TDO6, but my rev range is a lot higher than yours will be. I'd stick with a TDO5 20g. Blouch sells one as do several other companies. I don't in endorse one company over another as I kind of cheat when it comes to turbos...

p.s. I wish I lived in Australia for the record. Much better cars there.

Kind of cheat? That's intriguing...

Really? Aussie cars are better? Well that's good to know. You guys sure have a lot cheaper resources, so far as parts and quantity of tuners... I'm actually getting an Etune from a lad in the states, as I can't find anybody who does open source here.
