Are you running any saggy butt spacers in the back? I'm running 04 sti take offs on my 02 and the back sits low and the front is a monster truck. Yours looks even and balanced unlike mine. I can upload some pics if needed.

No spacers. Sorry, I can't help you much with yours. I just threw mine on. Nothing special was done.

No. Those were sold locally. I'll probably get something else eventually but I have many other things I want to do first.

Here is a quick video of the VF39 @ 18psi on Pump Gas:

Yeah. I will try to get that. It's a tight fit but once it is in place it is a good fit.

Does vf39 feel laggy at all ? I know its silly question for such a small turbo but i have a protuned stage 2 bugeye and i'm looking for a small power increase(probably vf39, sti top mount, sti pinks and a fuel pump). Just wondering if i'm going to sacrifice low end power at all. Thanks!

Yeah, compared to a VF on a 2.5L it is definitely a later powerband. You can feel it really come on close to 4k. I think it's a nice combo though. You wait a little for the power, but then it holds all the way to redline. Unlike the 2.5L where it falls off by 6-6.5k.

The car was tuned on E85 last night and feels great! Huge improvement over the stock TD04 and pump gas setup that I got it with. It actually feels fairly quick now!

Well it's actually been 3 weeks already!

And it also has a new shift knob. Need to update the mod list.

That'd be about a 20% gain in hp and tq, idk if you'll get that much but you should be much closer!

I'm guessing that at some point your going to drop a built jdm v8/v9 motor in there with a rotated kit, or going hybrid/stroker. Can't see you staying with the stock 2.0 for long.

Unless my math is wrong I think it's more like 15%. I think it should be close. I see 2.5L VF setups go from 300 to 350WHP when switching to E85. Proportionally that should get me close to 300 with my setup. And the pump gas tune was really conservative compared to most. There are some 2.0L VF's on pump gas that do close to 300WHP on Dynojet. The E85 tune isn't very aggressive either but it does have 2-3psi more boost.

2.0L won't be in there forever, but no comment on your other guesses.

I edited my post to say 20%; but for hp, you're correct it's closer to 15%, for tq it's 20%

I know you'll see a significant increase, but I will be surprised to see as much of a gain as you would on a 2.5L.

Here's a graph I was able to find of a "2002 WRX, VF39, TBE, UP pipe, modded stock injectors (820cc), walbro, ebay tmic running ~24-25 psi. The same car made just over 300 whp on 91+meth."

358/400



Not sure if this is also on meth, but assuming 7% correction factor on the dynojet, he's at 332/372 awhp/tq. Assuming +30-40 for the meth, he's around 305/330 just on E.

Granted, your setup is different, and I've made quite a few assumptions, but it looks like you're correct in that 300 is definitely doable on E with that turbo. Power tapers pretty quickly though, I'm curious about the gains you'd see with a vf48 over the 39.
