Default Can anyone help me with my '98 Turbo Legacy? N. Chicago/SE Wisconsin

Hey MWSOC, I have issues and need help. If you're smart and like money and free aftermarket parts, please read on.

I've been playing with Subaru's for years, bla bla bla. However, my current job has me working WAAAAYY too much to spend any time on restoration or maintenance or anything of the sort.

I recently acquired a turbo'd 98 Legacy GT w/ a T04 and WRX TMIC, MBC, atmospheric BOV, and a ton of other upgraded parts. EM is via an APEXi S-AFCii (****ty, as you well know). There is some shoddy workmanship throughout, a bad turbo oil feed line and who knows what else. It runs pretty terrible and I have neither the time nor the skill to get a WB and tune this thing myself.

If I could get some work put into this car, I'd like to enjoy it as a daily driver, a lot of the extraneous parts I don't really care for (BOV, custom exhaust). I'd really just like it to be leak free, reliable, quiet and somewhat fast. If anyone could spend a few days with this car I have cash, parts, and anything you replace you can keep (except the turbo and tmic, of course). Feel free to send your advice, I'm located near the IL/WI border near I-94 and work in North Chicago. Thanks!!

I live near the Schaumburg area
Been wrenching on Subbies for over 17 yrs . ( Dealership level )
Mostly the older legacy's
I would suggest some better em / maybe a harness swap to really be able to get it be a d.d & reliable . I know that sound like alot but ,
Other wise you'd be fighting more than mechanical issues .
Sorry I'm booked till @ least Nov .After that we can talk if your still having issues
Good luck !
Regards
