I have a 05 LGT wagon 5mt, and im trying to get away from the IHI turbos. I would like to get into a BNR Stage 1 (VF40-EVO16G/TD05H).
Right now im running a Cobb AP on STG 1 91oct, and i have a catted DP, catless UP and catback exhaust waiting for my next step, ... What turbo? My end goal is STG 2 with a reliable turbo, because this is my DD.
I have been doing some research for the past week or so and I have read that the BNR 16g requires a stg 3 tune or a tune of some sort from a shop. I read that on the Turbo Wiki
I have also read that it can be used a replacement turbo for the VF40. Read that on a couple of BNR threads, and a couple of other members that put them in their legacys
That leads me to the conclusion that I should be able to run BNR's Stage 1 (VF40-EVO16G/TD05H) on a OTS Cobb STG 2 map, with the supporting mods I listed above. I would love to hear any input, or a point in the right thing to read. Thanks Guy
