All Im saying is if I put a bigger turbo on my car, I wanna go faster and I don't need 500whp to do it. 18g doesn't really put down more peak hp than vf52 although it holds power longer. People should be running low 11.20s with em and 10.80s with a 20g. Most guys don't even run 10s with 30r
if all you care about is 1/4 mile, why are you driving a Subaru? If all you care about is 1/4 mile, why would you assume that is only thing everyone else cares about? If you are such a hot driver, then it wont matter what turbo other guys run, you will beat them all; therefore, your advice on turbo choice is moot.
