Default Aps Ss45

Does anyone have any info about this turbo?
Its new on the asp website, but no other information.
Just that its sleeve bearing
I am assuming its a 45 lb/min turbo?

Its also just in the 2006-2007 sti section.
I emailed them 3 days ago, but they don't write back

Would like to know about this turbo as well. I like APS stuff but the SR40 is kind of small and expensive and the SR56 is too big for what I want.

Yeah, just like their smaller TSR rotated kit. I wonder if APS has just abandoned the Subaru market. I noticed they are pushing their Corvette stuff a lot lately.

Well, these turbos are out now. There just aren't any in the US yet. You can have an APS dealer order them from Australia. Jeff from Slowboy offered to air freight one over for me, but I decided to wait for his next big shipment to save on shipping.

Evidently the turbo will be called the SR45. There is also a slightly smaller SS42 turbo as well.

Hopefully this turbo will compete well with a 20G. I know APS makes good quality products, so I figured I would give it a try. I will post a review in a couple of months when it arrives!

Thanks to Jeff and Slowboy for the information!

any news on this turbo. I have one sitting at my mechanics (australia) about to go into my car. My mechanic swears it will be a great turbo, but i was leaning towards the twinscroll jobs.

My SS42 turbo came today but it is sitting in my apartment office. I wasn't able to pick it up before they closed. I will take pictures of it tomorrow and post them on here.

It just seems like a black crinkle finish, as opposed to the red crinkle finish they put on their intake.... It sure feels like that.

I could be wrong though.

according to rallysportdirect's website.......

APS SS42 Sleeve Bearing Turbocharger, with a 50CFM or just under 52lbs/min flow.
First genuine TD06-20G Housing that was specifically made for the Subaru application.
The wheel is made out of Inconel 713C
18PSi Spring Actuator
Oil Line is included

Sounds like a APS branded 20G/FPgreen sized turbo. Price isn't bad either!

APS SS45 2.5L Turbo
[APS 990-060-475]
Our Price: $1,295.00

Bump for anyone with any other info about this turbo....

I'm seriously considering this turbo and too bad there isn't too much info on it. I just hope it performs aswell as the 20g sized club. It should be a good fit for a basic turbo upgrade along with my APS top mount, exhaust, ebcs, pump and injectors.

I would say the SS42 is closer to a TD05 20G then a FPGreen. It does not come close to the performance of a 52lbs/min turbo like the Dominator III.

I would imagine the SS45 will perform similar to a TD06-20G.

I bought the turbo before APS suggested that the SS42 should be used with a 2.0 liter engine. The power just falls off after 4000 RPMs. It just isn't a good fit for the 2.5 liter engine.

I can't say much about the ss45 but I don't see how it can be better then a TD06-20G from blouch or FP.

Might perform the same as a 20G, but for less coin.

A guy over here in Australia has an SS45 fitted to his Suby and made just under 380whp (2,0L and running at 20psi from memory).

So the difference between the SS42 and SS45 is simply a slightly larger back housing -
From the website:
Quote:
APS SS42 Turbocharger - P/N 920-060-460
-Designed with a smaller turbine housing primarily for 2.0L engines.

APS SS45 Turbocharger - P/N 920-060-475
- Large turbine housing to suit higher exhaust gas flow of 2.5L engines.

The APS SS45 and SS42 turbochargers employ identical compressor design, dimensions and charge air flow. The difference is in the turbine housings - which in the case of the SS45 turbocharger, a larger A/R results in higher exhaust gas flow capacity for powerful 2.5L engines.
It'd be nice to know the actual specs....
