There are also some larger options out there that still work well with the 2.0L, like the SR40 for example. You can also look into FP.

Look around here for advice though, and use the search. There is a great deal of good info.

Anything larger then a TD04 is a good upgrade. The vf39 is very close to the vf34. Nearly sister turbos.

Not sure. It's due to the thin wall casting on the wastegate portion. I've got a VF39 with no cracks either, but.....

Of course, while the VF39's do have a history of hailine cracks, they seem to run just fine WITH those cracks...
