Re: turbo upgrade

1997 Subaru replaced the TD05 in favor of the smaller and quicker spooling TD04.

Re: turbo upgrade

Depends on your power goals. TD04 turbo's as standard are better for low down torque but perhaps not so much power high rpm. The TDO4 is smaller than TDO5 as Pete said, the TDO5 will produce more power if needed but also give more lag.

Re: turbo upgrade

If it was me I'd go for a VF34 if I was looking at 300 bhp. TD04 with a de-cat/sports cat and air filter plus remap you should be looking at around the 270BHP mark.
Swap the TD04 for a VF34 and you're looking at around 330BHP (assuming you do the injectors, fuel pump and intercooler as well)
Tidgy is the man to ask, sure he runs a VF34 on his Turbo 2000 "TIDGY"

Re: turbo upgrade

VF35 will give you the 300 goal easily and it's cheaper than the 34

Re: turbo upgrade

lol, yep 34 on mine

as ed says though a 35 will be a cheaper option and hit your 300 target. 35 are pretty easy to pick up second hand, 34's are rare as rocking horse poo second hand so i ended up buying one, i can't remember how much mine was cois i had a load of other bits all done at the same time

Re: turbo upgrade

If your after 300 bhp ,then a vf23 or a vf 28 both will make 300+ bhp with a few supporting mods ,and a half decent one can be picked up much cheaper than a vf 35, and the 28 spools up a tad quicker than the vf35.
