-Will trade my turbo + cash for a 20g (preferably FPGreen)
is a fairly new IHI model that utilizes the exhaust housing of a VF24 and the compressor housing sized between a VF 23 and a VF 22. It comes on boost down low (around the 3000 rpm range). With upgraded injectors, fuel pump, and engine management, the VF 30 is good for 365-390 horsepower. It is important to note that the VF30 is NOT a roller bearing turbo it is bronze bearing.
Another Subaru factory affair, this Turbo is installed on the latest edition STi version WRX from Japan (to 10/01). The VF30 represents the best bang for the buck Turbo to be used for street and strip use. The VF30 features an identical RHF55 housing as used in the larger VF22 which makes upgrades to the wheel increasingly easy. In terms of size, this turbo is almost as large as the VF22, and bigger than the VF23-29. This turbo features the venerable EZ18H turbine housing, 48 mm compressor inlet, and a compressor that while similar in design to the VF23-29, features a 6th blade for better performance across the rev range. This is a terrific all around turbo, and clearly a top seller. It's main characteristic is its linear power delivery, making it a perfect bolt on street turbo that can easily turn 12 second timeslips at the strip.
