IHI Performance VF48 High Flow Turbo Upgrade | 04-19 STI and 02-07 WRX

The IHI Performance VF48 High Flow Turbo Upgrade for 04-19 STI and 02-07 WRX is the perfect option for someone who wants to bolt on some serious power, with OEM quality, at a very affordable price point. This IHI VF48 high flow turbo upgrade spools early like a stock VF39, VF41, or VF48, and shares the same reliability and fitment of an OEM VF48 turbo, but it has been redesigned by IHI to flow more providing that extra power you crave. Up to 400+whp with E85, supporting mods and proper tuning. (Dyno Graph shown below)

 

VF48 HIGH FLOW TURBO FEATURES

This Subaru performance upgrade turbo was engineered to prevent compressor surge which tends to occur at low/mid rpms with the stock WRX / STI turbochargers. At high rpms, even using the same boost level, efficiencies are significantly improved over the stock WRX / STI turbochargers. It spools ultra quick, not at all laggy like some of the bigger bolt on Subaru turbos can be. Torque is smoother on the road and not as binary, making this a perfect option for daily drivers and vehicles that will be used on the track. This turbo has just been submitted for CARB approval as well!

  • Precise machined aluminum forged big compressor wheel for quicker spool
  • The appropriate shaped larger compressor shroud adopts an abrade-able seal structure that further improves turbocharger efficiency.
  • 100% Bolt-on Installation
  • Engine supporting modifications will be needed to gain full performance potential (400+ whp with e85, at 18.5 psi)
