Sav. I have a VF43 and STi intercooler, decatted of course.
What is the main difference between the two turbos and why do you think I am only able to boost to .8 bar? Is this for safety reasons do you think?

Pretty much the same thing, VF48 just got a newer bearing design from what I could gather.

My engine was rebuild with forged pistons, ACL Race bearings, etc so I reckon 0.8 bar was simply for safety.

Thanks, I was just telling Chett she's like the village scooter - not much to look at but awesome to drive. :D
