Mitsubishi TD05H turbine wheel; 5. options of 7cm2, 8cm2 or 10cm2 turbine housings tailored to your application; 6. option of 3" bell mouth inlet compressor housing; 7. upgrade actuator option and 8. complete drain tube/coolant line package with gaskets for a complete bolt-on package.
So what's the big deal? The 18G-XT spools very quickly, produces great mid-range torque and excellent top end power for its size. If 430 crank horsepower is your goal, this turbo is for you!
Application: Subaru WRX/STi
I installed this turbo along with all the necessary bolt ons for my 2002 wrx. I came from a vf48 turbo and this blouch 18g spools just as fast and holds boost all the way to redline. This is a great turbo for a 2.0L wrx motor without adding too much lag. I am conservatively tuned at 21 psi making 350whp
