Default VF48 turbo pics...

Since there are not many pics of this new turbo, I took some today. Im not sure of the specs but it doesnt appear to be any different than the VF39/VF43 series turbo's. I snaped a few pics with a VF39 compressor. Feel free to comment.

looks a tiny bit bigger on the cold side, but it might be an optical illusion.

It does appear larger. Do you have a 39 or 43 lying around for comparison?

Send it to me and I will do some checks on it.

the VF39 had a P18 hotside housing

can you check inside the VF48 exhaust housing inlet where it reduces onto the turbine blade
usually the exhaust housing will have the number stamped in
if it doesn't have a get a socket of similar size and put it in to compare the size difference between the VF39 and VF48
if it is bigger then it will most likely be p20 housing
which would be much better for the 2.5L engine

also you could get a vernier and measure the compressor inlet blade sizes etc.
I believe the VF39 is compressor inlet is 47.9mm

I'm interested in how this compares to the VF43 Turbo. I have one sitting in my garage that I'm gonna install in May but if this turbo looks like it's better then my VF43 might be for sale.

If you have an 07 wrx, you don't need injectors for that turbo as your stock ones should be large enough. You should be able to get the parts for 800 or so including the turbo, TMIC and fuel pump. Installation and tuning for an additional 1700 is steep. At $100 per hour for labor installation should be no more than $300 MAX adn teh tune being basic will vary at most places from 150-300.
