Beefier I don't know. I had my stupid Perrin hose colapse on my 04 STI. My Autobahn88 house from Zenaracing has had 0 issues other than it is a complete bear to fit under the intake manifold. The biggest thing for me is the minimum diameter through the hose is bit bigger on the Autobahn88 intake.

It is impossible to install one of these Autobahn88 hoses without removing the manifold and doing a bit of cutting to remove some fuel line brackets.

What are you doing about the extra crank-case vent on the 257?

The FP Green is a much more capable proven power turbo. The VF22 is great if you have no other options.

Do you want to put your title on that , considering I did it with a 2L motor before going to the 2835 and stroking out to a 2.2L, and I am not talking about fanboi Autobacs or G Force fudged numbers either.


I think you need to take a trip to Akita.......visit the Suby guys down there and the HKS certified tuning shop!!

You will be suprised what the VF22 and 23 are capable of with the proper support and tuning, and of course the 98 oct gas!!!

98 RON is no better than 94 R+M/2. I don't deny that the 22 and 23 are great turbos. I have both, but I would really like to see and talk to someone pulling 350 WHP out of one without water injection, etc...

....

considering my old roommate pulled 260whp out of a vf-30 on cobb's mustang at 5200ft in an 02 usdm on 91, 5 years ago.. that makes little sense

i am hoping to make 325whp running e85 with my k/vf-22

put a rubber cap over it - its just an extra crankcase breather for avcs. You may need to dent it slightly to make your crossover pipe fit.

I have had mine covered for almost 2 years now (EJ207) with no issues.

Not talking about 98 RON, talking about 98 R+M/2. Stock 96 WRX came with these turbos, with a FCON Pro V Gold tuned, exhaust, injectors, and upped boost 320 was easily being reached.

Where are you getting 98 R+M/2? That is not common in Japan and you can't really call that pump gas as it is not very common anywhere. The September 1996 and after WRX came with the VF22 while the V3 STI had the 23 and the V4 had the VF24. I really do not buy that that set-up made 350 especially with the stock top mount.
