Turbo upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I have a 2002 WRX estate so far my car has had de cat turbo up pipe, full decat exhaust system, dump valve, re map, Brembo big brake conversion, turbo timer, I'm after more power so I've bought a k&n induction kit/filter and a front mount intercooler and I've laid my hands on a TD06 20g turbo, I was going to fit all of the above at the same time and then get a custom re-map

I'm just wondering if this turbo will be ok on my wrx, if so what kind of power I will achieve with it and my other mods, and will I need bigger injectors and bigger fuel pump if do what ones,

Cheers for any help

Wotcha and welcome - my initial thoughts are yes to both pump and injectors plus a remap to suit - if the pump is still the original one it would be wise to change it anyway due to age - there is a recommend by someone on here that had issues with his walbro so went for something else but unfortunately I cannot remember the brand... :rolleyes:

 

given the rest of the engine is standard I would just go to the next size up of injectors

 

feel free to browse the forum as we have several serious engine build in project threads.

 

be careful with the K&N as whilst they are excellent filters in their own right the oil can screw up the maf sensor

Vf34 or 35 is the way to go for over 300 lol sti turbos

Been doing my home work

I have so far sti pink injectors coming from Australia ,ultra sonic cleaned

Full toyo sports exhaust upipe down pipe cat back

Mishimoto turbo hoses

Sti version 7 tmic

Have my eye on brand new vf34 turbo

Roger Clark fuel pump

Eye on a Perrin 3 port boost solinoid

Various hoses etc

dump valve will be going back to a forge recirculating one

A good sett of spark plugs and a good service then off for a remap well this is my plan might take me a while to get the rest of the stuff lol hoping for around 300 , that will do me nicely ,sorry for the hijack and whatever. Else I need thinking of getting a map for 95 Ron fuel as well

the TD06 will be poor on the 2.0 engine, it's suited to the bigger 2.5 that it comes from

 

for good spool, VF35, or for a punch in the back TD05 (same max power, just deliver the power different)

 

my last blob and this blob have the same bits fitted. pinks, VF35, decat up and downpipes, 3" full exhaust, bigger top mount. the first one was mapped for 95ron and was 325bhp, this one is 330bhp on 99ron (i didn't want more than 330bhp)

 

i wouldn't bother with the front mount, the std top mount is good for 350bhp (if you want to upgrade go for a bigger top mount or sti top mount), the clutch is good for 350bhp, gearbox 380ish, the engine with supporting mods is good for 400bhp

 

 

don't get too hung up on top line figures, earlier torque or an extra 50lb of torque in midrange is better than 20bhp top end

Im selling a TD05 16g as im going the  VF route simply for future proofing.

 

IHI Turbos



VF22

This turbo has the highest output potential of all of the IHI VF series
turbos and is the best choice for those who are looking for loads of top
end power. The top end power however, does not come without a cost. The
VF22 spools significantly slower than the rest of the IHI models due to
the larger P20 exhaust housing and is much less suited for daily
driving than some of the other models. Although the largest VF series
turbo, the VF22 is not quite optimal for stroked engines or those who
wish to run more than 20PSI of boost.



VF23

This turbo is considered a great all-around turbo. Like the VF22 it
utilizes the largest P20 exhaust housing. This housing is mated with a
smaller compressor housing of the of the VF24. This turbo is considered
optimal in applications with range from mild to slightly wild. It does
not have the same top end power of the VF22, but spools up significantly
quicker.



VF24

This turbo shares its compressor housing with the VF23 however, this
housing is mated with a smaller (P18) exhaust side. The smaller
characteristics of this turbo allow it to provide ample bottom end power
and quick spool. This turbo is very popular for Imprezas with automatic
transmissions and Group N rally cars.



VF28

This turbo came standard on the STi Version 5. In terms of overall size,
it is smaller than the VF22, VF30 and VF34, and about same size as the
VF23.



VF29

This turbo is nearly identical to the VF24, with the same compressor and
exhaust housings. However the compressor wheel in the VF29 is has been
changed slightly. The changes made to the compressor wheel in this model
are generally viewed as improvements, and as such this unit is
typically chosen over the VF24.



VF30

The VF30 is commonly considered the best bang for the buck turbo in the
IHI VF series line. A relatively new model the VF30 features the same
exhaust housing as the VF24 but a larger compressor side similar to the
VF22. The combination of these two parts results in increased output
potential without the lag associated with the VF22. Although it doesn't
offer the top end supremacy of the VF22, the VF30 is a great compromise
between these unit and the quicker spooling models.



VF34

The VF34 is nearly identical to the VF30, with the same exhaust housing
and compressor. However the VF34 goes back to the ball bearing design,
and in doing so achieves full boost approximately 500RPM sooner than the
comparable VF30. The VF34 is the most recent IHI design and as such
costs slightly more than its counterpart. Top end performance and
maximum output are identical to the 30.



VF35

VF35 The VF35 has identical internals as the VF30 and it uses divided
thrust bearings. However, the exhaust housing is a P15 which means this
turbo will have fantastic spool characteristics. This turbo is standard
on the new WRX Type RA. LIMITED SUPPLY.



VF36

Roller bearing version of the twin scroll VF37, also has a titanium
turbine and shaft for even quicker spool. Same compressor housing as
VF30/34, however twin scroll P25 exhaust housing provides slightly
better top end output due to reduced exhaust pulse interference. This
turbo is good for 400HP and used on JDM STI Spec C from 2003 onwards.



VF37 (thrust bearing)

Enter the age of twin scroll IHI turbos. Same compressor housing as
VF30/34, however has a new twin scroll P25 exhaust housing that provides
slightly better top end output due to reduced exhaust pulse
interference. Twin scroll also provides better spool up for improved low
down response over the VF30/34. This turbo is good for 400HP and used
on JDM STI from 2003 onwards.



VF38

Twin scroll turbo with titanium turbine and shaft. Smaller compressor
housing than VF36/VF37 provides tremendous spool up capabilities but
less top end than VF36/37. The spool capabilities of this turbo are
demonstrated on the JDM Legacy GT, which reaches peak torque at 2400RPM.



VF39

Single scroll turbo used on USDM STI and latest 2.5L STIs released internationally. Smaller than VF30/VF34.



VF42

Exclusive turbo to the S203/S204 models, this features a twin scroll
design with a slightly larger compressor than the VF36/37 turbos and
different turbine design (more blades). The VF42 is a roller-bearing
turbo and is likely of similar size to the VF22 turbo, but with twin
scroll exhaust housing for faster spool and superior top end performance
due to reduced exhaust pulse interference.

I love vf turbos ! Bit more expensive than the vf range

I picked up a td05 16g front entry converted for about 70 quid but they are quite common just remember they come in front and side entry so you need the right one or get it swapped over by a fabricator / turbo rebuilder
