Exclamation VF34 turbo max HP???

Hi to all,

I've been researching and I quite like the VF34 turbo, which im very happy purchasing and installing into my 2005 wrx.

But the question is, how much HP can they handle? On some sites its says that they can handle 365-390HP, but other people on scooby sites say that more than 350HP will be pushing it.

If anyone has had any experience with this turbo and/or knows the max hp, then it would be most appreciated if someone was to write it in this thread.

Many thanks,
