Default I need some opinions on turbo choice...

Guys,

[edited......]
What pros and cons have you guys experienced with the VF22, VF30, VF34, PE1818, PE 1820, etc?
---------------------------------------------
As a former rotary roadracer, I have dispatched the last of my rotaries and snagged meself a WRX. It's currently outfitted with a Vishnu Stage 0, turboback exhaust and a TXS/Hyperflow TMIC.

The current modifications have certainly awakened the car, but it's not yet what I think I want. What I am looking for is a stronger pull in the 4000-6500 rpm range. Short of gear changes, is a turbo change what I am after? I do not dragrace, but as a former roadracer, I am looking for that hard drive out of corners, in that 4-6K rpm range.

What turbo am I after? Opinions welcome. I am looking for info.

TIA,
GAspipe

If you're looking for power in the 4-6.5k range I would suggest taking a good look at the PE1820 or the VF30.

not to start this whole turbo debate up again, but we've made more power with the VF30 than just about any other turbo we've tested, and it makes 18psi of boost by 3300rpms.
