Link? I'd love to put one on a vf39

Edit, just looked a bit. It's exactly what I was looking for, I feel it might kill some of the things that makes the vf39 "so awesome" but would help its top end. I want to see some results.

Yep that, from what I read (haven't seen any proof) they give a little loss in spool which is expected for a gain in top end which is expected. But at 400 bucks, you are almost better off selling it and getting a 16-20g if you are looking for more power.


This will just change how power is delivered. But I'd still love to try it. I'm going to call them after the holidays about this and their anti surge compressor cover if I can I can mate it to a vf39.

That housing and a billet wheel would be interesting.

Do they make a billet wheel for a vf39?

Edit, yes they do. It's is all giving me ideas.

hmm:

10.5cm hotside
billet wheel
ball bearing conversion (possibly coming)

or the same with a TS oem turbo.

There are several offering rebuilds with a billet wheel option for around $200.
Sixstar, Pure turbos to name a few, I'm sure there's more.
Lots of blown vf39's out there for next to nothing.
DO IT!
Love to see the results.

im going to keep an eye out for a vf on the cheap and send it in, or see if they can do a core charge and ill toss it in in the spring. I want to call sixstar because they supposedly are going to have a ball bearing conversion for the vf out. also, I want to see if they can make a billet wheel for the twin scroll ball bearing vf36.

I think I am at least going to try the 10cm hotside.

There are few redeeming qualities to IHI turbos.

Throwing money at a hotside and billet wheel isn't going to trump a Kinugawa or Kamak turbo for the same money, however.

Granted he could go bigger for less but sometimes people want to do something different, makes this hobby a lot more interesting.

These won't net you much if any gains. The VF series turbo is fine the way it is. You want more then buy a bigger turbo even if it is only a 29g you can find them on the cheap (400-600)

but This option just came to my attention and I emailed AMR for results on it. They seriously need to strap a VF car on the dyno, and do a hot swap and post results. Would take all of 4 hours tops... and that letting the car cool off before removing the turbo.

Im also curious as to whether the waste gate port is larger, because that would also be a plus.

Really disappointing for a "reputable" shop to do something like that.

I am ordering one of these housing in a week or two and sending my VF to Six Star for the billet wheel and porting, don't plan on having my car finished until mid-spring though, but I will eventually have results for it

Hmmm. I'm going to be upgrading to an FP Green soon and my vf48 is definitely getting tired. For 400 bucks, seems like i could send it to them and resell...

I maybe more interested in running this instead of the Green though.
