So we just got in a VF40...and much :slobber: :slobber: :slobber: :slobber: action.

The VF40 is what is on the Legacy 2.5 GT Turbo, 2005 MY.

Its not much bigger than the VF7...but flows MASSIVELY more CFMs on the exhaust side...only a teeny bit bigger...however, the compressor side is BEAUTIFUL and is definalty larger than the VF7...it looks to be TD04L-13G sized..but with a MUCH better compressor wheel.

I hope to find a used one, as there are already people out there that have upgraded the turbo on the EJ257 in their Legacy GT.
