Default Turbo suggestions?

I just ordered a JDM ej205 for my 2002 wrx bugeye wagon. I have a set of STI pinks I will be installing prior to getting it DYNO tuned. What do you guys suggest for a turbo with 565s without maxing them out and getting a little more Whp. While being reliable.
Thank you.

With the injector size you would be fine with any VF series turbo or even the stock TD04 if you wanted. List some power goals you want and what the car is meant for, that will be the start of figuring out what turbo you want.

I just want as much or a tad more HP than a 2019 STI thatís about it. I had higher HP #s in mind..... but Iíd rather have the vehicle as reliable as could be. Since Iíve already sunk 7k+ into it

So you want to make roughly 245whp? Just buy a VF48 or use the original TD04 with full bolt ons. Either one will get you in the ballpark.

Yea That would be ideal. 245whp sounds good. I donít want to give up reliability for a good pull etc. just some spirited driving from time to time. No track time. I only drive it during the summer months as I have two other Subaruís and this one is my project. Iíll probably have to upgrade the turbo, I donít want to max the TD04 but donít want a turbo unnecessary for my application

Tbh I thought Iíd ask you guys with experience to chime in and give suggestions. The only guy Iíve talked to is Eric at torqued performance about tuning the jdm engine. I figured Iíd upgrade the turbo while the motor is out, and go from there

Maybe a 16G if you don't want to go with the TD04.
