Turbo Upgrade for 2009+
Well I have almost 300 miles on the beast and its time to start thinking enhancements!
First, do we have any members that have upgraded turbos in their SH?
What is the logical, modest upgrade these days? Does the Vf52 bolt right in or do we need to go VF48? I assume we still have a TD04 variant stock. EDIT: I read on some site that the TD04 we have "blower outlet is curved upward and terminates in a bolt flange" like the VF52 and is the natural upgrade. Can anyone confirm this?
I want to get a bit more linear torque/power curve than say a stage 2 TD04 that is really peaky in torque and not a lot of HP.
I am certainly not looking for a huge turbo or huge power but say stock STI type of power through the 4EAT perhaps. Just enough to remind me I have a turbo but not so much I have 4EAT in my rear view mirror.
