You will have to do a lot of tearing into your BRAND NEW car (not to mention you'll lose your warranty) so that you can have a low-boost, slow, unreliable, turbo'd 2.5i

Avo, Is comming out with a turbo/front intercooler kit. Seriously, save your money and buy a WRX a year or two from now.

This is true. It will more than likely cost you less in the long term and short term for that matter to sell the OBS and buy a WRX.

Well, this is NASIOC, odds are there is someone who asked the question before (and for this question there is a LOT of information on the board) and there's a low threshold for not using the search function. There is, however, a huge amount of knowledge here also, so if you can handle the snark, you'll get along fine and get a lot of good info.

That said, he's not that far off, actually. With Subarus, if you want a turbo, buy a car with a turbo, or swap your engine out.

The 2.5 liter NA engine is not simply a 2.5 liter turbocharged engine without the turbo. They are very different animals, and the NA engine will not support much boost at all so it isn't even a very good candidate for turbocharging. Most people who boost an NA engine blow the engine within a short amount of time.

As I understand it, the only way to make the NA engines hold up for long under boost is to do significant work to the engine internals, and even then it's no guarantee. By the time you spend all that money to get a low-boost (slow) car that is likely to blow the engine at some point, spending another $4-5K more for a reliable WRX with a factory turbo looks like a pretty good option.

Still, people do turbocharge and superchange the NA engines. There is a whole forum on forced induction for naturally aspirated cars here, check out the "Normally Aspirated with bolt-on Forced Induction Powertrain" forum and
you will find a lot of information there.

That was extremely helpful thank you. I realized the amount of work it would take and it seemed like it would be a fun project but i guess if blowing the engine is that likely i might have to just buy a wrx.

It will just be less of a headache for you to have a better base to start your project. If you don't have the experience, slapping on a turbo can create a mess that is not fun in the least. If you want a project and can afford the time, I would just buy and older vehicle to tinker around with and learn. It does not make sense to boost your new Outback because like others have said, you will be spending near the same amount of money if you were to buy a WRX. Good luck.

Look bro, coming from a guy with a 2.5i n/a that is now building it and boosting it I will be the first to tell you that turboing our cars is def capable and can still be reliable! Although I agree with everyone else, for starting out fresh and new it is alot more sensible to just buy a wrx. But if your heart is set on turboing your car then go for it!! Just don't be dumb and do it correctly.

The reason everybody associates the n/a as being unreliable under boost is bc you have stupid people trying to make alot of power and running 10-12 psi on stock internals. Which our internals are not built for nor can handle that kind of abuse. However, the avo turbo kits come running only 6 psi. Which has been tested and proven over and over again to be very reliable. Of course 6 psi sounds slow to all the wrx and sti guys running anywhere from 15-25 psi. But remember their engines are built for that. 6 psi on stock internals, full exhaust, and a couple other small tasteful performance mods with a good tune will make your 2.5i feel like a completely diff car!

Remember there is always room to grow. Run the 6psi for a while and save up some money. Then look for parts like, low compression(8.5-9:1) forged pistons, upgraded vavletrain, cams made for a turbo'd car, and some forged connecting rods. With those internal upgrades you can run at least 14psi no problem.

There's also the Raptor Supercharger kit that makes 6 psi of boost and 185whp, which is more than the 2.5 NA makes at the crank .

I agree with the others, why rip apart your brand new cars engine and void the warranty, WRX!
