The VF34 has a ballbearing center section whereas the VF30 has a bushing. Supposedly a bushing will last longer, but the ballbearing spools slightly faster... Your choice


As for others, names like PE, VF, etc... They are all brands/models. VE or IHI, and PE or Power Enterprise( I think) and isn't a Txx a turbonetics?

The T series and the GT series are both Garrett.

The PE, as mitch808 pointed out is the Power Enterprises line. The PE's, from what I know use IHI turbos and modify them to their specs. Hence PE1818. PE may use other turbos besides the IHI units but I'm not for certain.

The VF is a series from IHI, i.e. VF22, 23, 24, and so on. Just becasue one has a larger number than the other doesn't necessarily mean that it is larger than another. As in the VF30 vs VF34, same turbos but different bearing types.

And, I also believe that HKS or one of those companies utilizes Garrett turbos and modifies them to their specs. They call them GT as well.

If anybody can correct me please do. That's what I knew them as.

t series does not automatically mean big ass turbos. there are plenty of tiny turbo's that run in the t series. ie : t-18, t-25. but generally speaking we refer to the t series as being big. but dont forget the little guys.

Ok I edited my first post and took out "big ass" being synonmous with the T series. Sorry for leaving out all of the little guys

There is a WRX here with 551hp @ all four. It ran a 10.48 @ 141mph -- I believe it had a T66 with NOS to spool it up but can't remember for sure.

Um, shouldn't you be asking this in one of the technical engine forums where there are people there who can answer you?

Also, why do you think a T60 won't work? That doesn't make any sense.

you could probably fit almost any turbo on a subaru impreza. the problem is that it is not bolt on. many now have made or cut their up pipe and made then fit other turbos such as garrett or turbonetics. its just not easy and it takes someone who knows what they are doing and alot of time. anything can be done. its just the $$$$$$$$$$.
