Default 95 legacy turbo project

i have a 1995 legacy L i bought about 2 weeks ago....its my first subaru so needless to say i have alot to learn

car facts
2.2L
213,000miles
AWD
wagon

i told a few friends i want to turbo it now i have a VJ-17 turbo and a T28
an intercooler(given to me free), a rising rate fuel pressure regulator, turbo headder , 3" CAT, 3" muffeler,wide band 02 setup, and a boost guage

i am on a tight budget and want to get this done. i only want to run somewhere around 6-8 psi

im just looking to make a lil more power and a decent sounding exhaust

my questions are
1 should i use the t28 or the vj17 OR should i buy a turbo off e bay that came off of a wrx 2.0L ?

2 the rising rate fuel pressure regulator didnt come with directions other than where the fuel goes in and out so do i just replace the stock regulator with this one ? cause i assume that its supposed to go between the fuel filter and the fuel rail. however the stock set up is set up so the fuel line comes off the filter, goes into the first rail then goes to the other fuel rail then to the regulator so i dunno

a little help please

Just to give you the heads up, a stock legacy 2.2L (Not the EJ22T)...It will go boom running more than 7-8psi for any length of time. I'm sure there's a way to build it up so that doesn't happen...

You should check out the Subaru Legacy International site for help. http://www.sl-i.net

wrx turbo's can only go down to about 9psi steady w/ the internal wastegate, you'll need to find a way to reduce the WG or get an external WG.

If you really have to go with the RRFR, get a JC knocksensor for added insurance. If you're using a turbo header, you'll need to cut a notch in your x-member to clear the pipe, or get a turbo x-member. You may want to get some WRX injectors as well (and the o-ring adapters for your manifold) just to give you the extra headroom in fueling just in case.
