Fill out your profile. No one can recommend a tuner to you if we dont know where you live. Also if would help if you listed your mods first

Update your profile first so we know where you live.

2nd read the unabomber manifesto

3rd. for a 16G + e85 you will need. Injectors, fuel pump, the 16g xtr and a sweet tune.

On a 2.0L that'll be a great street setup. You'll need upgraded injectors (850cc will surfice) and fuel pump (walbro255) along with a tune.

Go to Tony S for a tune...tunes most of the Subies around here. Hit up Oakos or Horsepower Tech's for his info. I just bought the 16g XTR, waiting till spring to hook up my entire setup.

If you already have a vf39 why not keep it? The XTR is an amazing turbo but similar to the vf39. I'm going from the stock td04 to the XTR but if I had a vf39 I'd just keep that, add more supporting mods and call it a day. On a 2.0l you won't get much past 300 whp max before blowing stuff up.

These cars are so much fun, but they definitely aren't the straight-sixes you might be used to. VF39 + E85 would be a great avenue to go. Then drop the 6mt in. You won't be happier

I am on stock block and went with a VF39 and E85. It was in my car maybe 3 months.

VF39 is too slow to spool. I went 18 TD05 with EWG running conservative boost. It equates to around 320 atwhp and a **** ton of torque. I just dropped in a 6 speed and the car is fast as **** right now.

Waayyy better.

VF39 imho is a waste unless you get it for free.

Are the pinks 550cc?, 850's would be nice w/e85, the 255 should suffice, if possible find a tuner local to you with a good reputation.

e85 w/the vf39 on a 2.0 would be a very sweet street setup, enjoy.

You should check with your local chapter for good tuners.
