There's another thread about how a guy did this using a jig. He placed the oem downpipe on a piece of ply wood and used wooden "butts" to measure it at the bellmouth and other portions of the pipe. With the wooden markers in place, He then nailed them down into the plywood. Now you can remove the oem pipe and you have the plywood with the wooden markers in it. You can then put another pipe in its location, but now you'll know where to cut ect.

Btw, is 42" the length of the usdm downpipe?

Search threads created by me and you will find the downpipe compendium. There are plenty of options for twinscroll downpipes, and all of them are international since stock location TS never made it to the states.

I ended up having mine made... Used the OEM bellmouth, a ebay downpipe and had to put in a flex pipe to add length. turned out okay.


Any more report on this turbo? or was it a fail ? Seems like a fail since blouch stopped reporting and so did anyone with it.

I dunno why this thread has fallen flat, but over on the scoobynet forums they love it and have posted great results.

Default Regular Guy Interest

As one of the relatively ignorant 'masses' who are considering a turbo upgrade I am very interested in these results.

Things I'm considering:
1) I can bolt on a Blouch td06-20gxt with little trouble, duplicate others' results and have a fairly decent street car.
2) I can go Blouch TS, but have to furnish the VF37 first and obtain all the other supporting items. For me, that would have to be in the form of a very well thought out, proven OTS kit.

On the street, most of us adjust our driving to allow for the short comings of our 'remote' location turbos; which i'm reminded of daily.

There's no doubt in my mind that serious track & rally competitors will benefit from the TS set up. But those in that category are more than mere hobbyists in regard to time, money and knowledge.
I'm not sure how many Subaru DDs are going to fork out the cash for the upgrade. I'd have to be convinced that the driving characteristics are really that much better before I'd go this route. I am still interested though

Apparently you don't need to fork over a VF37 P25 housing anymore. They are making their own and the cost is about $210. I'm going to try to get more info tomorrow.

The only disappointing thing is that from what I was reading, the TS don't perform as well as the SS and spool roughly the same. (Might be an engineering difficulty with the housing?) So essentially it will not be like an IHI TS where you get the earlier spool vs the SS turbo.

Someone please correct me if i am wrong. (I hope I am...)

That's where it gets a little ugly. Between $1600 and $2K depending on which turbo and if you have a VF37 housing. (If you have a P25 turbine housing it saves you $200 or so)

Still not bad considering they do single scroll and TS in a stock location.

So I read basically the entire Scooby Clinic Billet Turbo Thread at ScoobyNet (Blouch) Anyways I found this nice Dyno graph comparing the VF36 Twin Scroll Ball Bearing Turbo Vs. Scooby Clinic SC46 Billet Twin Scroll Turbo. Figured I would share the results and both Turbo's were running E85.

Thread post link to graphs

I must say the SC46 looks amazing! Pretty much this is the Blouch 1.5XTR in Twin Scroll form.

That should make it all the more impressive than. However I have a 2.0L Spec C, so that makes me quite happy to see those kind of results.

Getting ready to send my VF37 in to Blouch, I just have to decide if I want to spend the extra $ to get it P&P'ed and ceramic coated. Being that I'm running a TMIC, the ceramic coating would be a good move, not sure on the P&P though. I'm on a EJ207 and the possible quicker spool would be nice.

You might as well do it while it's off the car. You won't have any doubts about not doing it once you get your car tuned. Also doesn't Blouch have their own housings now so you don't have to send them in your VF36/37? I know that ScoobyClinic doesn't require your turbo for their SC46 and Blouch is the one that makes it for them.

From talking with Blouch, they use their own housings for the smaller 18g and 20g twin scroll options, but they still need the VF36/37 housing to do the 2.5XTRTS (polka pickle) in order to fit the Garret ball bearing CHRA needed.

Wait a sec... The TD05 18g and 20G TS they make are "smaller" then the VF37 Polka pickle?? Thats dosent make sence. A TD05 housing is bigger than a VF37 housing.
