any turbo change will need a remap.

Re: upgrade turbo for my wrx classic

Can't change a turbo without a remap. Save up for a remap. Will make a huge difference even without changing the turbo. If you really want a bigger turbo you will need both done and it would make sense to get them both done at the same time.
A vf34 or 35 or one of the scoobyclinic sc range are all good upgrades

Re: upgrade turbo for my wrx classic

any tubby bolted on will as said above need mapping,if yours is an early version,your ECU can't be mapped,so will need an aftermarket one..

You need to know what you want from the car first, big power, acceleration, responsiveness.
I warn you though, once you start.......
