Default VF43 Cartidge in VF39 Housing??

Will a VF43 cartridge fit inside of a VF39 inlet/exhaust housing? My stock VF39 is blown, and I may just buy a new cartridge for it and found both a VF39 and VF43 cartridge and I was considering going with the 43 if it will fit.

Thanks

There both the same but I would check out six star or some other company have them port and polish it and throw a billet wheel in it is like 300 bucks well worth doing

Probably a better idea to just buy another VF43 or VF48. Or what dude said above me.

I can confirm the 43 works in the 39 housing. I did this swap and it worked perfect.

I just swapped out the RHF55 in a vf48 today. Not that difficult at all if any of you are wondering. The toughest point was separating the exhaust housing from the CHRA, and even then, it wasn't that hard.
