Thanks for all the comments guys, time for an update...

After having a VF43 sitting under my desk gathering dust since august, I finally had the money for fitting and a remap, courtesy of the taxman feeling generous. The car went into FB Tuning on Thursday to have the new turbo, 3-port boost solenoid (courtesy of Wiley) and uprated walbro fuel pump (courtesy of iain) fitted, along with an oil change and remap.
On Friday night I got the call from Richard, but it was bad news as his laptop was playing up and he was unable to map the car.
I collected the car on Saturday and I must say a big thank you to Richard for looking after me and doing a great job on my car.
It's been hard driving the car off boost but as I'm writing this I'm waiting for Duncan (dynamix) to come and work his magic at such short notice, and fingers crossed I'll be back on boost by tonight!

Had the car mapped on Sunday, it feels like a totally different machine! Duncan reckons its making over 340hp and 380ft/lbs of torque, and it still needs tweaking on the dyno in January. I'm really happy with how its running, a big thank you to Richard at FB tuning for fitting everything and a massive thank you to Duncan for mapping the car at such short notice.

On another note, I forgot how low she is today and ripped the front splitter off while going into the harlequin car park photoshoot on hold...

Looks good, let me know how you get on with the VF43 as I have one (had it since January) but am dubious as to weather to fit it or not.

Your thoughts would be most appreciated on how the car feels; Mines a Hawkeye WRX with BC's, Walbro 255 pump, Samco Hoses and remap by Andrew Carr.

Is it worth fitting the VF43, how much quicker does it feel?

Many thanks

Do yourself a HUGE favour and fit it asap
The change in the car has been immense, there's just so much more power now and its really a joy to drive.
I had mine sitting there since august and i was debating whether to fit it or not, but now I'm really glad i did!

Thanks,
