Why not? Maybe some ppl want to have an all around performance car and not just look for peak power.
I mean if anyone has an 08wrx with 20g setup, please post up

why is this? early 3k's spool, possible 350whp... the twin AVCS and Catless up pipe would really make a potent car with an 18g i think.

The OP should go browse through LegacyGT.com as the motors in the 08's and the LGT's are the same. Quite a few people there with 18G+ turbo's. PDX even has a LGT fitment 18G turbo they are selling (along with a 16G).

What's with all the hate of the 18g? The 18G-8cm is a great match for that car, especially on the stock transmission.

You may have to wait a bit to see results from who's done it though, might be a bit early

I agree! The 18G is a great turbo! On a properly tuned car with all the supporting modifications it should spool just like a VF-39/43 but with higher peak numbers and hold to redline much better. I'd opt for the 8cm^2 turbine housing as well.
