Mine has taken a month now. Yesterday I received my third set of turbo piping and it finally fitted OK. What a nightmare.

If everything was right the first time. I estimate it would have taken me at least three to four full days to install, that's including TEC-II, new fuel rails/lines/FPR and no install manual.

For my custom Legacy kit, I would say at least 40 hours under the hood. This was my first turbo install, and I don't recommend doing a custom one the first time. My car was down for three weeks, and had to be towed 4 different occasions for fabrication and exhaust work. To say the least, it took a lot more time than expected. Oh, and it was quite a learning experience.

Alan said it right. I think his was down for what, four months now? But, he is the only person in the U.S. with a Legacy B4 TT swapped into an Impreza. Please, someone bug him to post more info. about his project, simply amazing. And I owe him many thanks for all the help he has given me with my project, though my car is kind of parked right now.

I will surely be thankful of the help I can get for my setup to go as smooth as possible.

Will you be able to help? So far, Corey and I will be doing most of it.

I'm sure Alan and myself can surely try. Between us both, I would say we know quite a bit about putting on turbo, and each of us has "specialties" when installing. Im the R and he's the D.


Depending on when you start your project Kevin, I'm am sure we could give you a hand.

It's a Vishnu Kit. The fitment issue could have been my exhaust manifold's fault, we don't know yet. So don't start bashing the Vishnu kit because it is really a very high quality system. Shiv did everything he could to help and in timely manner, so that made it a lot more bearable. Afterall, I have expected something like this to happen because I did buy the first batch of turbo kits that he made.
