Default Does a bolt on turbo just bolt on?

When people refer to turbos as being "bolt-on" does this really mean that all I have to do is take out my existing turbo and put in this new one and viola better power (after a tune)?

Do you really not need to change other things like injectors when doing a "bolt on" turbo swap?

i.e. If I wanted to change the turbo on my STi to the FP Green... do I just need to buy the FP Green turbo and install it and tune it?

I just don't understand what people mean when they say "bolt on", and an explanation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

the turbo bolts on, but you still need the supporting mods. to support the potential of a fp green you will need an upgraded fuel system (injectors + pump) and an upgraded intercooler.

ok, so are there any bolt on turbos that can use the stock fuel system of the sti or wrx?

Thank for the help!

Not really. All the IHIs can use the stock fuel system, but they don't really make any more power.

By bolt on it just means you don't have to custom fab anything for it to work.

Nope. Not safely anyway.

The stock fuel system in both cars can easily be maxed out by the stock turbos. But if you can afford a green you can afford injectors.

You should clarify that.

They can use the stock fuel system, and the reason they wont make any more power is because you would have to run a vf30 at about 12PSI to not run out of injector on the stock fuel system on a WRX.

Any IHI at will max out the stock wrx injectors by 5000rpm running even 16PSI. Even the tiny vf24
