Default im sure its been beatin to death but my search turned up nothing

hey guys
i already STFA and could not find anything

but is a vf-22 worth it for an sti??
gruppe-s has them for 599 shipped(killer deal) and then send to deadbolt for some port work and the like.


or should i just keep saving my pennies for a bigger turbo??


the 22 should be good for round 350 to the wheels with supporting mods right? or am i dreaming..

thanks for the help

i just really dont want to puke a motor (i dont know of any subby tunners in Oklahoma)

I was very close to buying one. Seems to be too small of gain for the $$ and effort. Killer price and my understanding is there are gains on the top end. For me it won't get me to my goal of 400whp.

just try to find a local shop that knows what there doing that can port your vf39's wastegate for like 100 bucks. I woudlnt spend 600 bucks on a turbo that will give me 1% more power . Its not like your going from a 13g to a vf-22, your going from a vf-39 to a vf-22. I dont think the difference would be worth 600 bucks.

Sell you vf 39 for 550 and get the vf22, then your only out 50.00 like me just get a fuel pump, injectors and a tune and you will be cranking a great daily setup that will smoke all the stockers out there.
pulls good and hard, and a great mod if you do not want to go crazy with the fmic 1500.00, and a 2000.00 turbo, and the inj,pump,tune
