IHI VF28 Turbo Specs

Updated April 17, 2017

The IHI VF28 Turbo is a car engine turbocharger manufactured by the IHI Corporation, a Japanese maker of ships, turbochargers and aero-engines. A turbocharger is, essentially, a gas compressor. It compresses the air that enters the engine, thus creating more power. The turbocharger is powered by a turbine that derives its power from the exhaust gases coming out of the engine.

General Specifications

The IHI VF28 has a 60-mm outside diameter inlet. The turbocharger can be used for engines producing around 200 to 250 kilowatts, or 268 to 335 horsepower. The turbocharger achieves full boost at a range of between 2,800 and 3,300rpm. According to AutoSpeed.com.au, a new IHI VF28 costs around £570.

VF Series Comparison

The IHI VF28 belongs to the VF series, which competed against the Mitsubishi turbochargers in the late 1990s and early 2000s. VF series turbos feature straight inlet paths. The VF28 is in many respects similar to the VF24.


The VF28 turbo was installed in the Subaru Legacy models. The turbocharger is one of the upgrades to consider for enhancing the car's power on the street or highway. The VF28 provides an all-around performance.

Technical Specifications

The VF2 comes with 11 turbine wheel blades and a C1795 Kilogram-per-square-inch wastegate actuator, a valve that diverts the exhaust gases from the turbine wheel, regulating the turbine speed. The turbocharger also features a 9.4PZ18-H turbine housing.
