Were VF35 also fitted to the Bug STI uk's? thought it was just on the blob's.
Basically.....The JDM has eveything the UK has plus...
The same heads but slightly bigger intake ports.
A VF30 turbo as opposed to the VF35 fitted to the UK (perfomance wise, nothing really in it)
Higher revving cams.
Electric folding mirrors.
The engines are the same (apart from the porting and cams) and are no stronger than the UK car.
5k will buy a bug sti but only lightly modded IMO......They really are a cracking car and pound for pound the best Impreza you can buy
Yes UK Bug STI's to.....The Bug RA, Spec C and S202 have the VF34 which is the roller bearing version of the VF30 fitted to the JDM bug.
All 3 turbos (30, 34, 35) all had the same size compressor housing but hot side on the 30 and 34 is bigger than the 35....P18 as opposed to the P15
UK STI 7s. (Bugeye STI) came with a VF30, not a 35. Twin scrolls were not on the JDM cars till the version 8.
The JDM cars also came with a quicker ratio steering rack.
Aye not bad, crap on fuel though lol. Got an issue with a vibration through the wheel at 70 ish so getting that checked out next week. Still loving the noise though
No Frayz they came with a VF35 and VF30 was the JDM bug, I never even mentioned Twin scroll.....I've broken a few bug STI's, UK and JDM
My UK Prodrive edition version 7 had a VF30 on it, and yes it was the original turbo that it came from the factory with.
I too thought it was a 35 when I was removing it till I looked closer.
Definitely a VF30, swapped for a 20g, then an FP green, GT3076R, now a GT3582R
