from vf23 to vf43. should i?

hi guys got a uk99 turbo an at mo its mapped to 324bhp with a few mods. but im startin to hear strange noises like wisteling an at this time ive got a chnce to buy a mint vf43 with low miles. i no i will need a map tweak an 550cc injectors but is this turbo superior to the vf23. how does the spool up compare an does ithold boost better? i no it can get me more power but wont take it to its potential as want my car to last.
anhelp please guys as this offer might not come again.
Thanks for looking

Just a better and more modern design. Dont think they have been around long enough to decide whether they are more reliable but they certainly fly on both 2.5 and 2.0
