Default Billet vf series compressor wheels?!

Does anyone have any of these on their vf series turbo?


I'm thinking about running one in my vf39 or twin scroll vf36 for crazy spool and torque.

Sounds interesting. I'd want to see how it performs vs stock first.

In 2003 or so ion performance used to do this for the td04. At the time it was probably 800 bucks for a larger wheel and some porting. Half to a third of the price for a PE18xx turbos of the era for the wrx.

It really wasn't worth more than some increased spool and maybe 25hp more than a td04. I used to own one.

Think about it, you now have the potential to squeeze more air, but you still have a small housing to push it through. The housing is your restriction!

@$500+, you are better off saving for a more well put together solution.

The cost vs gains will not be worth it is my guess. A bit better spool, a bit more peak power, but not even close to a solid 18g class turbo.

But is you want td04 like spool with vf power and good transient response. This is the thing to get.


Also can run Moar boast

$500 for a shiny vf wheel is a waste.

Anything stock location is a waste and garbage. I'm not buying anything stock location other than messing with the turbo I have now.

Also I'm sick of your trolling and complaining. If people didn't DISCUSS things there would be no point of a forum. Even if they have already been discussed. I'm going to report every single one of your posts from now on. You NEVER post anything helpful or containing any factual information ever.

So if the VF turbos are "throwaway" then what's a better option for 275whp with quick spool on my 2006 WRX? I'm at Stage2 right now and was planning on buying a low mileage VF39/43 and STI intercooler and getting the car Protuned. On a budget here so the used VF turbo's are appealing.

My 48 had 3000 miles on it when I messed up the compressor wheel. I couldn't just throw it away, so it made sense to me. Cheaper than a new one and im not going used.
