Turbo options

So with the car now running I'm looking at options for turbos, I'm running @snwmbl's old heads with 282 cams (https://www.clubsub.org.nz/forum/index.php?/topic/54135-fs-v4-sti-heads-w-kelford-cams/)

 

Currently have  VF22 which is far too small for these. I'd like to keep stock placement, and would rather stay under $1k for the turbo, second hand is fine. Although I did consider the chinese TD06's you can get for <1K, IE these.

The short block is a 2L CDB, bored out 1mm O/S, with forged rods/pistons. Currently running Pink top feeds, but considering getting some EV1 1000cc. Fuel pump is a DW200, running 100RON.

 

Any thoughts/opinions?

Aren’t those head, cams and valves going to need a twisted setup to work well?

The off boost performance can’t be great. 

the Chinese stuff is pretty hot and miss but it does get better every year. 

 

To get the most out of them, yeah, but I'm not too worried about getting 400KW, everything else would need upgraded first. but maybe one day.

Power goal? Everything stock location pretty much sucks.

 

Don't really have a goal, just whatever I can afford to get 😂. The more the merrier, it's only a toy. My main restriction being the Turbo. 
Eventually (in years to come) I'll go full twisted garret or holset etc, but for now just wanting something fun to get it on the road, and enjoy the lag that I'm sure it'll have with these cams.

 Just do it 😉

 

But seriously, cheaper to do it right the first time than spend $1k on a Chinese turbo and tune then upgrade and tune again 

Aww man, I'd love to do that setup!
Sadly it's just too much, as I'd still need to get new injectors, and that'd force me to go FMIC, so another cost there too, as I doubt that FMIC setup would fit. :(


It'd tempting to stay with the VF22 until I can do something along those lines, but the risk of it disintegrating on me is always on my mind, as it would be with a Chinese turbo too.

Bit of a thread hijack.

I have a vf30 in my v7 atm. Are vf22 much better and worth swapping? My goal is to make a car that feels quick. I love the way these turbos kick as they make it feel quicker than it is. Will have aem fuel pump, 3 port, full exhaust and tune.

Nah, they both top out at ~230kw, BB centre doesn't even make the VF22 spool better. The only worthwhile VF upgrade is the VF34 which spools about 400rpm earlier than the VF30 and is disgustingly responsive. Pretty rare though.
