turbos??????

i have a 94 imported wrx, i think it is running the tdo4. i am hoping to put a bigger turbo in it what will fit dirrectly (no modification needed to bolt on) i was hoping to fit a VF series, does anyone know of anything that would give more torque and power for my car????

i dont mind having the car remapped to take the power, just need to know what will fit properly with no hassel. i have never had a boost gauge or controller as car on had light mods so far....

Re: turbos??????

VF will fit but you will need a 90degree elbow to convert it to top entry....


you will also have to change the ECU to an aftermarket one as the 94 models can't be mapped..

Re: turbos??????

Do u suggest any ecu's that would be a good investment, would a piggy back ecu work? Or does it need to be a full ecu??

Re: turbos??????

standar 94 ecu can be mapped so no need for replacement, for that level of tune dont realy need an aftermarket one.
