VF52 and a 5EAT?
 
I am looking to upgrade the turbo on my car to the VF52 and wanted to gather a little information before proceeding. Who is running this turbo on their 5EAT and with what mods to the tranny? Anyone have any problems with their tranny after install? I currently have a tranny cooler, trans bushing and change the fluid every 20,000 miles. The tranny seems pretty strong still only acts funny on cold days until warm. Thanks for the help.

Hexmods valve body upgrade

Lots of 5EATs with that turbo. Do that ^ along with what you've done and go for it. You will be pleased.

Unless you are getting a super low price on that VF52, I personally would waste my time with another OEM turbo. Especially when a BNR 16g is only $725

Hopefully $700 for a used one with 8K. Would the tranny handle the turbo minus the VB upgrade?

Yes, a VF52 shouldn't be enough to grenade it, but its all based on your tune.

Where are you getting a brand new VF52 for $500?

I've had a VF52 with E85 on my 5EAT for 50k miles with no turbo or trans issues. I have an IPT valve body and run Amsoil ATF changed every 30k miles.

Was stage 2 for a couple of years. Vf52 for a month. 5EAT 5th gear went bye-bye. Had tranny cooler. Was not an aggressive tune. I would upgrade the VB.

Is the BNR 16G very similar to the VF52? More, less or the same abuse on the tranny?
