+Karma for you.

Very interesting, the differences between the turbine wheel and the wastegate hinge. :)

Re: Pictures: Vf40 side by side TD04

I got the turbo for cheap and it seemed to be in good shape, very little shaft play. I installed the VF40 and discovered it was blown, very very loud whine starting at 2200rpm on up.

So I bought a 09 wrx turbo today, I will post pics when I get it.

Re: Pictures: Vf40 side by side TD04

what are you gonna do with the vf-40 hit me up!
I bought the VF52 for just over $900.


I will sell you the vf40, but it needs to be rebuilt. You might as well have it upgraded at the same time. $100.

Let me know.

good choice on the turbo. Did you buy it locally? I really want to see what you get out of the VF52!

wow, after visiting LGT, didnt realize the VF52 can be had for so cheap. I went ahead got a VF46 instead.
edit: just wanted to ask, after you installed the VF40, what method of tuning did you use?

I bought the VF40 locally and I got etune from Clark tuner via a AP map. I think I might go open source to have the VF52 tuned.

I'd also like to know where you got the VF52 for $900. I checked with SubaruGenuineParts and they came back at something like $1026 if I remember right.

very sexy... but for 0 why didn't you just go with a big 16g or something?
There are very few turbos that will fit our legacy style intercooler connection. We have Avo's: $1700, Deadblt: $1600 and thats it.
