Indeed.

From the NASIOC FAQ Subaru Turbo List

Quote:

IHI VF48
(250-325whp, Bolt-On)
This is the standard equipment turbocharger used on the USDM Subaru WRX STI MY08-10. The primary difference between the VF48 and the VF43 used previously on STI's is the more advanced bearing design.
Expect to achieve full boost with the proper mods and a quality tune between 3000-3500rpms. 2002-2005 WRX owners will need fuel upgrades for this turbocharger and proper engine management is highly recommended for all vehicles. This turbocharger is not a direct bolt-on for the MY08+ WRX.

Only 325 WHP with a VF-48...?? I call BS on that... Im at 325WHP with my VF-39 running it still will the IWG, stock injectors and stock fuel pump.. Have TBI,TGV deletes and intake though...

Im sure a person could get somewhere near 400W HP with a VF-48. Especially if you ran bigger injectors, bigger fuel pump and a EWG...

But whateva.

If you read that link you will see expected numbers are the same with a VF39 and VF48 (the latter is no longer prone to cracking). Changes in flow are minimal through the lineup though - higher number doesn't necessarily mean a big change in flow or performance (usually more subtle changes like bearings or fitment) in the IFI lineup.

IHI VF39
(250-325whp, Bolt-On)
This is the standard equipment turbocharger used on the USDM Subaru Impreza WRX STI. It can be found on all model years from 2004-2006. The VF39 utilizes a thrust bearing design and the P18 exhaust housing.
Expect to achieve full boost with the proper mods and a quality tune between 3000-3500rpms. 2002-2005 WRX owners will need fuel upgrades for this turbocharger and proper engine management is highly recommended for all vehicles that utilize this turbo aftermarket. Though they are prone to cracking, VF39’s can be had for very cheap if bought used.

Potential buyers asked for expected performance. Seller made a wild claim about perceived power potential. Someone with more knowledge posted reality. This is all in the best interest of both parties for a fair deal.

I've sold things here and never had issue - hardly see how on topic relevant posts seem like dumb ass comments to you. Let me know if you get 400WHP with this bad boy and suggested supporting mods. :spin:

When sellers make claims not based in reality about used parts they are selling it makes potential buyers wonder if the rest of what the seller is saying is accurate. When being told that a oem STI turbo will make 400whp, 2000mi all of a sudden becomes suspiciously low for miles on a used oem turbo. But whateva.
