Do not use that exedy. Just don't. If you do want to torture yourself, go for it. Particularly do not use with the F1/exedy 13.7lb lwfw. If you ARE going to use, you must use tsk3 kit as the exedy TOB is a POS and could cost you a tranny.

You already bought fueling and you are still considering a vf52? You bought fueling and you are considering a 18g over a 20g?

Id love for you to explain to me your reasoning as there is no major difference between a 18g vs 20g lag-wise when compared to OEM (both are similarly more laggy than oem) but there is a meaningful difference power wise and one actually makes buying the fueling worth it.

Anyhow, the best turbo for you is 20g^7cm or 20g^7.5cm. A BnR 20g is probably the best solution financially.
