    Hi,

    i'm on the look out for either a s3 225 or TT 225, and i'm already planning my mods :-D

    I've read that a vf34 from a subaru will go straight on, and i'm wondering if the VF48 would go straight on too? Its a fair bit bigger the the VF34, so i'm wondering if space will be a problem, or if there is something else i havent thought about that will be a problem?



    Thanks in advance for everyone/anyones input :)

    No IHI turbo will go 'straight on' mate... you will need a new exhaust manifold and downpipe plus custon TIP, larger injectors and a custom map... just for starters...

    There are a few other things to consider going 'big turbo' too...
