I say stick with the VF52. It's arguably a slightly better design than the VF48. Also, if you're top mount you'd have to swap your intake manifold for an STI manifold, or if you're front mount you need to get the adaptor pipe which means adding more piping.
My ported+polished VF52 spools faster than the stage2 vf39's/48's that the local guys have, and it holds boost surprisingly well. On my automatic legacy with vf46, i was tuned to ~18lbs, tapering to 12 at redline, and now i'm tuned at ~19.5 lbs, tapering to 16 at redline
