bobglaub Posted August 21, 2017 Share Posted August 21, 2017 Good eclipse day everyone not me, I recently purchased a 2005 LGT wagon with a manual transmission and it's everything I thought it could be. Not as fast or nimble as my 05 STI, but I didn't expect it to be. I fucked up buying the car. Bought it from a used car lot with a recently replaced turbo. That AND I didn't check the turbo, I had just assumed they used a legit one. I have noticed since the day I bought it that the turbo noise is much louder than it is on my STI. Spool through to BOV (or whatever it's called on these cars). I didn't think anything of it. Until today. I'm digging through the engine cursing up a storm because I can't get the damned banjo bolt out to check the filter and I say, hey, I should check the turbo. Rotomaster. There's a name I've never heard of. So I Google it. Autozone vf40. Well that sounds like it's probably crap. So I come to you, friendly forums, what do I do. Pull the turbo and replace it with something not shit? That billet 20g from BNR sure looks tempting. Yes I know that'll require injectors and pump and probably smoke the crap outta my clutch, but that one will have to wait. Should I keep this knockoff on here or get a vf52? I've run some logs with romraider and there is some knocking that I'll take care of after I do the banjo bolt filter and leaky valve cover gasket.
