Default Can anyone confirm or deny this?

What type of Turbo is used in the WRX?
Is it that TD04/9C/6cm turbo?
the same one used on a 3000GT VR4 and stealth TT?

I know what you are thinking and it will not work. The Turbo uses a IHI bolt pattern, so any upgrades from the DSM " turbo upgrade" path will not work without redoing the flanges on both sides of the turbo.

td04h-13g. Tiny. But any turbo from a 3000gt upgrade should bolt on. sSme flanges all the way around. You can get your 18g from Altered Atmosphere. Just make sure you tell them you want the front turbo.

Any idea how much that costs?

If it's relatively cheap, I'd use this as a temporary solution while I save for a PE 1820 and a TEC-II.

Skip the IHI turbos they suck. Mitsu or Garret is the way to go. As for the 18g set up, its not cheap, I am sure. Just learn your compressor maps. You'll find the right one.

And the TEC is over priced. A haltech is going to cost you a grand less and has better functionality.

I was mainly looking at the TEC because it came with the 550 cc injectors, and because it's relatively 'plug & play' as I don't wanna have to chop the harness anymore than I need to.

At any rate, turbochargers.com has the 16G (whoops put 18G before) for something like $600 or so - too bad it's the DSM bolt pattern.

I looked under 3000GT there, but the biggest they had listed was a TD04L, same friggin turbo I'm trying to get rid of.

Does this turbo exist in an unmodified form, or did Altered actually create a new bolt pattern?

GgranVI, please don't open your mouth (or type) if that horse dung is all that is going to come out.

The NEWEST MOST EXPENSIVE Garrets are ON PAR with the newest IHI's for efficency, but they don't seem to have noticed the benifits of making all the gasoline engine Turbos have a Ball bearing center section. Tell you what, ptu on a new fancy Garret on a WRX and run it for 10 years. Put a IHI VF-30 on a different WRX. Under the same conditions I am more than willing to bet the IHI will be runnning like a champ at the end of the 10 years, and the garret at best will still be running.

The old garrets as sold by Turbonetics is such crap its not belivable. These things are from the 70's people. Peak efficencies barely break into the 70's on the BEST turbos.

LAST the DSM turbos DO NOT FIT.

*******DO NOT FIT**********

What part of DO NOT FIT is giving you trouble?
YES the stock turbo is a mitsu turbo, BUT it is cast with the outside dimentions of the IHI's that subaru uses on the more expensive versions of the WRX. Subaru has used IHI's with this bolt pattern since 90 with the Turbo legacy. Its still the same pattern on the 02 WRX.

Your entitled to your opinion and I to mine.

I have seen IHI's die. Quick and painfully (took the motor out too) and I have yet to see a mitsubishi turbo fail that bad. Yea, sometimes they need a rebuild, but not catostrophic failure. I believe what I see (most of the time. And what do I see? I see that the mitsu turbo in your WRX has EXACTLY (should I say it one more time?) the same housings as the 3k/S cars. The flanges are the same on the intake of the turbine. The flanges are the same on the outlet of the turbine. The compressor housings are pointed in the correct direction.

And better yet... Who said anything about a DSM trubo? Not I...

Who cares what flange is on your car? Cut it off and weld on the compatable one!

All i'm wondering is what the best kind of Turbo upgrade would be on the WRX?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

There is a group buy on a varient of the VF-30 going on in the vendor section. I don;t know if its still on, but it bolts in and kicks ass.
