Default Wild, there was a fwd turbo legacy?

Here is my reason for thinking this. If you visit the dealer you can ask for part ta102aj1aa . This is the fwd turbo transmission. Anyone ever see one? Supposedly they were only made in 1991

In my 91 Turbo Legacy, it had a mini fuse box in the engine compartment that allowed it to drive in FWD. There's a video somewhere on this board of some dude in a Turbo Wagon burning his front rubbers.

I drove my car for a couple days like this, and I DIDNT like it. Realize mine is not even turbo and I would be spinning the wheels all the time. Never realized that with an auto and such a small engine it would be such a problem. Guess it just proves the amount of torque subaru engines have.

Doesnt it seem weird though? Why would they offer 4wd low end vehicles but then have a turbo that is front wheel drive?

Im happy subaru changed to 100% 4wd product line.

Yea I tried it on my Legacy turbo when i drove it last summer. You can get them screeching pretty easily and in the rain they spin a little to much lol.
