....finish their subject line? Any turbo will work, as long as you have all the right parts and the right management. It's not a simple "here you go" kind of thing to turbo a car whose engine was not made with it in mind .

The wagons are GF8, not GC8. Also, Wayne "wac" here on the board has turboed his MY97 OBS. I believe he used a T3/T04e from RalliSpec but I may be wrong. His turbo is still on the car, Kevin has taken his kit off. Just FYI. I am debating doing a turbo kit or engine swap. I think the T3/T04e might be a little too big for our smaller displacement, lower compression engines. I don't know enough about turbos to make an educated guess as to which turbo would work better though. Maybe an uprated WRX turbo like the PE1818 or something? Around town driving needs a quick spooling turbo.
