Why not. There arguable the best vf. Depending on your needs... Ball bearing. Large powers capable. Reasonable spool...

They are one of the oldest vf series. So there's that. They are pretty rare I guess, not a terribly popular upgrade. Course, there are drastically better more advanced turbo's these days. It seems the OP just likes picking obscure terrible turbos and going with them.

What's terrible about the vf23 other than being old... In not spending $1200+ for a turbo with the same capabilities.. Ball bearing and 300+ hp capable. With reasonable spool.. What's wrong with it

Just saying there are better options. I'm not sure how much a used vf23 goes for, but I bet you could get a better performing turbo for the same price. I'd try and find one of the newer billet 16/18g variants. I think you'd have better spool and more power. Technology in turbos has come a long way in the last ten years.

I didn't read the thread besides the OP.
I'm running a Deadbolt 18g TD05 on my 2.0l WRX with a Perrin FMIC and a Tial 44mm ewg.

Im spooled at 4400 and pull hard all the way to the top, but if I could do it over I wouldn't be running a 2.0l.

My trans is fine and has been for 20k.

4400 is way to high for me. I want usable power. Id sacrifice top end for spool time any day. .


And a used vf23 can be found for 350/400. Find me a billet anything for t that and I'm sold.

Right, I forgot to include my recommendation; Some 16g variant.

Yet agin, buy a 16g. Hell, the OG one will outperform both of those.
