Most aftermarket turbocharger kits for naturally aspirated cars recommend running no more than 6-8 psi to prevent engine damage. You are all what make club sub a great place Also thanks to , formerly known as Aable , , and For supplying me with the bits and peices i needed for the conversion. The turbo manifold that comes with the kit replaces the factory exhaust manifold. A few hose clamps 6 should do it, you can reuse the originals for the rest 2 T sections A second right hand fuel rail, with luck you picked one up with the intake manifold 2. These engines which are still being sold new are fitted to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. Certain members are currently researching the conversion, and I'm sure more information will come to light! Believe it or not, I have been looking through this write up to help me with my parallel project. On the turbo is a vac hose going direct from outlet to wastegate actuator, with a pill in the line, and a t-section.
Good info on the RevD mani though, I didnt know that! You'll want to drain your oil, and coolant too. Runs mint and did for 30000 Kms unitl wanted more power hence v7 engine In my option just bolt it up, get a tune and your away. Tool's you'll need, will be a socket wrench set with a short and long extension, a 14mm impact socket, a power bar, pliers, spanners etc. Turns out I simply got lucky with mine, and the settled before they burst. From a single turbo subaru. But you won't get that boxer rumble Up-pipe Downpipe.
A six-speed gearbox also comes standard. Twin strolls will require a twin scroll sump, headers and up-pipe, which could double your rebuild cost. You need only solder 5 wires, and you're done! It also had a Zerosports front grill and headlight eyelids that I liked neither of so I was going to bin them but put them on trademe. I wrote this quite some time ago to post on a Legacy site. The oil supply is in an odd place behind the cambelt, i can't recall if you need to take the cambelt off or not to get at it.
It's one of those projects that start out seeming fairly simple. I realize this mod prob would have taken the same amount of time and make future motor changes a lot easier. Just give it pleanty of slack turbo side before putting the intercooler back on, and you'll be fine. The driver may mash the throttle, but the engine won't produce power until the turbocharger is up to speed. The reason a turbo kit is such a great purchase is that it takes a tremendous amount of money and time to successfully increase the power of a naturally aspirated engine. Besides, it's a waste of vac line hooking it up, because the factory rail it has, is thrown out the with the factory fuel rails! Good luck finding side feed's that'll fit! I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy L.
They are the only thing in contact with the road so make sure they will stick!! Put the sucker back on the engine and ensure you connect everything up, like the crank case breathers and purge control solenoid that green thing you broke. So with that in mind would the phase 2 plug in g-4 be a option? In the single, the ecu first talks to the ignitor, then the ignitor talks to the engine loom. Anyway, for a 2 port solenoid. For those who used the single turbo loom, like matt, It's done in much the same way, but it's slightly easier. Where can I find one at? As mentioned above, I said I'll be assuming you will be lifting the engine for the conversion. Maybe try taking the wastegate actuator hoses off and ensure the wastegates are closed then giving it a run to see if it builds any boost. And you will be doing a split fuel rail while we're at it.
Some stiffening of the chassis prob wouldn't hurt though. Thanks again Reuben i read your guide years ago and have been dieing to try it out. There's a few things to note at this point. If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the helpful and click to sign up. For the single turbo loom, all you need to so is add the ignitor in, and ground it. Once the manifold is on and the engines in the car, don't forget to hook up the vacuum lines on the regulators too. What psi are you running? So you cut the 2 wires off to the coil pack.
Refer to the pictures to see what these look like! If you need more horsepower and torque without a lot of hassle, a Subaru Legacy turbo kit is a great way to go and will accomplish this goal with minimal effort. The static compression ratio remains the same at 8. Dips about 5psi, and is very short. Is there anything basic I can check out which isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg? Plus your options with tuning and performance are easier and you can potentially make bigger gains. If their motor is looking dodgy, the spare is often a reconned version of the same if money is tight. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below.

Theres always a mission on when fitting the tubo in the standard position. The problem is, this means you must also get the metal pipes that run all the way down to the water pump. Although there is no claimed difference in power, peak torque is increased from 343 to 353Nm. Right, onto the Black Box of Dooooom! This is a new addition to thread 3. Read stage 3 to find out more. Now's also a great time to freshen up some bits and pieces whilst you're there.
