Default IHI turbo relocation EJ20G

Hi to every one i just wonder to know if it is worth it to do the turbo relocation with an IHI VF22 the same convertion that it has to be done for example with the Gt35 rotating the turbo 45 degrees because of fitment issues, in my case the VF22 is fitted on my ej20g engine so it has to be fitted with a 90 degree hose, on my understanding with the rotation of the turbo i will just to use a straight pipe to fit the MAF and for so i will get better spool, im right?.

The VF22 is not a fast spooling turbo so you will have to bear with the late spool. Do you need a VF22 for your power goals?

I'm not sure how much restriction the 90 degree bend is but I doubt it's significant, also rotating a turbo its lots of work and probably not worth the gains.

For better spool, consider a smaller turbo. Porting the turbo and exhaust manifold will also yield noticeable spool improvements.

90 degree bend shouldn't be a significant restriction... just weld on the 90 degree elbow on it and call it a day unless it bothers you that much.

I have a TD05H-20G with a 90degree elbow welded on.

a vf22 is a bolt in stock location turbo. why mess with that....? if you want to do a rotated turbo get a turbo that would make sence to do it with. a gt28 or a gt30 have similar power capabilities as a vf22. but arent as plug and play as the vf22..

the vf22 is not a direct plug and play.
