It would have been a VF48 machined to accept the ball bearing center section of a VF34 which was the last single scroll ball bearing IHI turbo. Then used a P20 exhaust housing from the larger VF22. All using a billet compressor wheel and upgraded turbine wheel of your choice. Giorgio from ASE told me that this combo would spool faster than a stock VF48 with the light weight internals and ball bearing by about 250rpm even with the larger P20 Housing.

The wealth of knowledge Nick, and Giorgio from ASE have about IHI turbos was incredible. I am getting a turbo from them, however its a lot more more special. I hope to have some more pictures and info in the coming weeks once it is officially mine.
Trying to go all secretive on us huh. Cool!! Keep the suspense and teasing going man. So far so good. BTW, I got dibs on the car when you are ready to move on to bigger pastures.
