Sti turbo in 02 wrx.. Please help.
Ok so i searched and i couldn't find a defining thread on the subject.
I know a good amount about my car but not enough. so i'm pretty new at this stuff.
I own a 02 wrx and i would like to upgrade my turbo with an STI tubro system. I know i'll need an sti intercooler and turbocharger. I'm pretty sure i'll have to upgrade my fuel pump.
My main questions here are what else do i need to do/obtain to make this a clean upgrade? What year sti should i get the turbo from, 07 sti IHI VF43?
any help is greatly appreciated.

-Wallbro 255 Fuel Pump ($100 new)
-Pink Sti Injectors 565cc ($350 new)
-NGK Iridium Spark Plugs ($10 new at Autozone)
-TBE- (about $200 for a downpipe a few hundred more for a catback system if you dont have one)
-Engine Management- I would suggest Cobb Access Port but hard to find one cheap for 02s (about 600 for v2 or 200-300 for v1)
-Sti Tmic is also good idea-(250 used)
-Say you buy a VF39 for $400
The total for this project is close to $1,500
Don't mess around man. Do a lot of research before you wind up with a huge headache like what happened to me. If you have the money to go for the swap i think youll be very impressed.
Try to find a VF34 or a VF30 is what i would recommend but the VF39 is prob the easiest way to go.
I bought a VF23 Turbo and I am still looking for some of the parts i mentioned above. Its a lot of work but be patient and try not to stress.
Let me know how everything goes for you
