Default Need Quick Advice on purchase of 1991 2.2 turbo

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1991 Legacy Turbo for $2400. I has 190000 miles with a 5 MT. I would plan to upgrade the whole car if it is possible to get some good HP from that engine.

I have to make my decision tonight...or some one else is 2nd in line.



Please feel free to give me any information on this model and engine that you might think I should know....problems, common issues, benefits, possible realistic numbers....blah blah...:-)


Thank you all in advance!!!

One quick comment is that the price is way too much.

That's a bit high, but the car has potential. Best Legacy Turbo model ever.

They just replaced the clutch motor mounts and radiator.

Can you explain why it's the best turbo legacy year ever made?

Lightest, pre-facelift, 4-channel ABS, rear LSD standard, oil cooler, and there are probably a few other things it had that the 92-94 didn't.

OW...great info.
I am coming from a 1998 legacy wagon...so I need to retrain myself what to look for.

If you guys can steer me in the direction of some good example images of fixed up sport sedans. I loved my wagon so much its hard to switch.

Go to the LC BBS, as shown above, and look in the Pics and Multimedia Gallery.

There's a link to a thread with some pics of my '91 SS.

There are plenty of others on there as well.
