on the 06's (wrx) are the internals and all good for that and or a VF22?, and if so about how much HP if all your fuel and tune is done correctly.

EJ Rex 08-01-2006 05:07 AM

The EJ20 is good for around 350whp with the VF22, tmic, fuel, and protune...the 06 would be more I would think, especially higher torque #s.

IBAUCLAPlaya 08-01-2006 08:47 AM

350whp on the EJ20, I think not. I would say you'd be lucky to reach that on the EJ25, shoot for closer to 330whp.

wrxtacy19 08-01-2006 09:19 AM

yea ive never seen 350whp out of a 22 on a 2.0L. maybe on like a dynapac, like a really high reading dyno.

scooby06rex 08-02-2006 12:02 PM

so the internals on a 2.5 wrx arent good for 350ahwp??? i can get another turbo to make that power i just want the engine to hold that power.. im ready to buy i just dont want to do somethin that will cause a kaboom...still deciding on a turbo to make the 350 tho i can do the fuel and all that no biggie i need a turbo to make it

mosc 08-02-2006 01:53 PM

oh they're just arguing about the output of the VF22 which is not the biggest turbo people have used on a stock EJ20 or EJ25 by far.

Yes, the internals on the WRX can more than handle the VF22. Your tranny on the other hand, might not.

scooby06rex 08-02-2006 02:36 PM

awesome far as the tranny 350awhp yay or nay or if not what do i need to do besides the clutch....
hate to be a pain in the arse but what does everyone recommend for a solid 350awhp alil more is always good with out to much mods for the turbo (when i say that i mean as close to direct bolt in as possible like the VF's, ball bearing is prefered, i just want a good turbo at around 15-20psi make me the power i want close to 400 is also ok i just dont want to push any part of the car to blowing up, minor upgrades im cool with. im also aware of the stuff that is needed to do the turbo, as far as tbe, Fpump, injectors, tune, but ### else) thanks everyone i know it gets annoying asked the same questions i just dont get the exact answers i want when i search trust me i have been doin over a month of research...

IBAUCLAPlaya 08-02-2006 03:09 PM

Get a TD06-18G or TD06-20G. The 20G will most likely get you that power, but with a good tune on the 18G, you might hit that number.

scooby06rex 08-02-2006 03:42 PM

and a 20G is a decent turbo? what modifications will i need to fit this turbo, besides the obvious...and any sites sell decent priced 18 and 20G?s whats roughly the start spool on them

rex-ya 08-18-2006 08:38 AM

Note: You never see true power numbers on a dyno because the Intercooler (especially a TMIC) is not running at the same efficiency as it would on the street. After a few pulls and some tuning, the intercooler is usually heat soaked. I don't care how many fans they put in front of it, it's not the same air flow as the street.

So, is 350 awhp on a stock 2.0 with VF22 possible? I think so, with race gas. But you might never see a dyno sheet.

06 wrx internals & heads
hey, ive been asking around, ive asked cobb, and havent had a clear answer. How much hp can my internals and heads and everything handle, safely. I was lookin at gettin a 20g, front mount, ill need a bigger pump and possibly injectors. I should be able to handle that with a nice tune right?

my0six 09-17-2013 10:23 AM

How'd you go?

I know this thread was a LONG time ago, but I have an MY06 wrx and I've just picked up a dirt cheap, practically new Vf22, I was just wondering, what did you decide in the end? How did it go?

BLAZE2099 09-17-2013 12:25 PM

These guys are long gone except Mosc.
It's been done many times over. Slap it on with needed other upgrades, get a tune and hit the road.

psinuse 09-17-2013 05:07 PM

Hmmmmm I haven't seen a VF22 in a loooooooong time....I wasn't real impressed with the 22 either.

BoostinChick 10-08-2013 12:24 PM

I am sure you may see better numbers with E85. I am debating whether or not to pick up a VF myself. My biggest stink is I don't want to upgrade my injectors so 16g/18g/20g are not an option for me. Was considering a VF48 and getting a rebuild + PnP + billet wheel by these guys - [url][/url]

Haven't seen numbers with this type of set up yet, though.
