its a tdo4. Its a wrx turbo. This turbo will basically feed your motor like the smaller legacy turbo. It would be a nice low and midrange turbo, if your expecting on making big power, this turbo it not the turbo to use.

Basically that is more like a supercharger than a turbo,nearly instantaneous boost can be had with that setup,I have gone down that road,just buy a kit.

The only way your going to add a turbo for your car and stay under $300 is if you mount it on your dash for looks man. There is a WHOLE lot more that your going to need.

Default 300 to add a turbo to your car? You are joking right?

Things you need OTHER THAN that turbo

Exhaust manifold with up pipe
New downpipe that hooks to the turbo
Free-er flowing exh to handle the extra airflow out
Injectors from a legacy turbo
Rising rate fuel pressure regulator
Different intake setup
Boost gauge
Fuel pressure gauge




If you think you are going to get the turbo AND all of that stuff, pluss all the other little extras for 300 bucks.... (hoses, coolant, gaskets etc)

just buy a kit. PS it will be more than 300

I dont mean to bust balls, Just letting you know what you are looking at getting into thats all

yeah I meant 300hp, not $300. I'm well aware that it costs more than that but thanks anyway. I've been researching turbo's for a while but I was just surprised to see this for $150, thought that was a great deal but I guess not.

well to be fair, you can put together a pretty cheap turbo kit with a td04 turbo. Thing is that you'll probably want to upgrade shortly and end up replacing most of the stuff you just bought. Figure its a safer bet to buy equipments thats a little more future proof.

Actually, $150 is a good price... PFS still has noobs trying to get $300-$400 from their TD04's . Midwayman is right though, buy an appropriately sized turbo from the get go (find me a t3/t4 and I'll swap out my VF10 with you ).

Yeah, my own personal experience is that a TD04L-13G flows about 23lbs/min of air at 7psi on a EJ25D, which, not surprisingly, is in the neighborhood of 60% efficiency -- you can do a lot better On the other hand at 4psi, I found that it was flowing ~16lbs/min which puts the turbo at about 70% efficiency, which is actually very good.

The moral of the story is that, while the TD04L-13G is poorly suited to >7psi of boost on a 2.5L engine, it isn't hugely bad below 7psi and is actually pretty decent at 4-5.

Forget the WRX turbo...Spend a few hundred extra for the right size turbo and you will be much happier...Get an uppipe made and a downpipe with an external wastegate on the uppipe that connects to the downpipe or just dumps to the ground or the side or something...

Look into www.cheapturbos.com for a great brand new turbo, properly sized for the EJ25 that will run at around 5psi on your stock motor and make about 300crank hp...

The uppipe and downpipe will be about $500 to build out of stainless steel...That includes the flanges, gaskets, and all labor...

The Wastegate can be from $100 to $300 for a 35mm unit

The Vortech FMU will be ahout $100...

The Injectors you have now are fine for 5psi of boost with about 70psi or fuel pressure...

Get a Walboro Fuel Pump for a WRX for about $80

Get a 3" or similar exhauts--$100-$700

Get an Apexi ITC for about $200 or so used...

Get a Boost gauge, Electrical Oil Pressure Gauge and EGT Gauge for about $200 or so...

Get some form of intake for the turbo for about $50

Oh you need an intercooler...Get the stock WRX cooler with BOV for about $100 and make it fit your RS...Get the same welder who made your piping to make the piping for the intercooler...That should be around $50...

That will get you going in the right direction...
