Default Some Turbo Questions

Okay I've had my 06 STI for about 5 months, so I'm still a little new to the platform, so excuse me for my lack of knowledge. My STI is basically full bolt ons with stock turbo, pushing about 23 lbs of boost.

My friend has a brand new turbo that he will sell to me for dirt cheap if I want it. It's a cheap turbo but it's still an upgrade, it is an On3 Performance 70mm.

Also it has a T4 flange and I haven't been able to find what flange the sti has. Also I hear that STI's run coolant through the turbo and this turbo does not.

I'm just looking for some honest opinions on whether or not its a good idea, or if it would even work.

It was tuned when it was reall hot out, so I'm supposed to be going back in the spring to finish the tune up, I figured if I'm going to upgrade the turbo I should do it soon.

not with the added cost of getting a custom up pipe, downpipe, inlet hose, tune etc.
Step 1 Find an accredited tuner
Step 2 tell tuner your power goals/ what the car will be used for
Step 3 buy whatever tuner recommends
step 4 install new parts/ get tuned by tuner be happy.

The only reason I'm even considering this turbo is because it kind of fell into my lap, my friend got it for free. What type of turbo flange does an STI use anyway?

Use the search button. VFXX series, XX number depends on the year.
Let me read that last part of your previous post back to you;
"the STi turbo uses coolant, this one doesn't".

Yeah I was asking about the coolant to see if it was correct. I've been searching all over for the flange type, all I've been able to find is that 06 is a vf39.
