Default Where can I get a VF10 gasket?

I need the inlet elbow gasket for a VF10. Came out of a JDM 1991 Legacy GT. Any ideas?

If the dealer doesnt have them. U could probably use like some silicon rtv, gasket maker. The inlet side shouldn't get too hot for that. Or u can get a sheet of gasket material and cut your own.

The elbow is bolted onto the compressor housing on the VF8/10/12, hence the need for a gasket.

^This. And the dealer told me they wouldn't know where to start, without a part number. Which I don't have, since the VF10 wasn't offered in the states.

Would you be able to get me a part number from NZ? I might be able to get somewhere with the dealer here then.

I would imagine the gasket from a VF11 would match up.

I believe I bought one, thinking it would... and it's way smaller. I'd have to run the part number on the gasket I have to verify though.

should be the same as an USDM Legacy Turbo wagon. call up the dealer and ask

vf10 = usdm legacy turbo 4eat
vf11 = usdm legacy turbo 5mt
vf12 = jdm liberty/legacy rs

Interesting. I see the gasket for the VF11 as PN 14415AA030 - is that what you had?

Not correct. The USDM car only saw the VF11, regardless of transmission.

It's been a while since I had the VF10 and 11 side by side to compare. It's possible the inlet tapers down in size on the 11 and stays constant on the 10.

it does seem that the VF10 and VF11 have a different sized flange. i found some random pictures online of the different turbos

vf11:

Also the VF12 was never JDM, try Australia instead. RS got the 8 and GT got the 10 in JDM land.

Thank you very much for that number!

Unfortunately, the local dealer said it's not a valid part number, so I'm guessing not available in the states.
