Default Not exactly a Subaru....Its a Saabaru!

Maybe going to use this as a Build Thread. But anyway....

Hey guys! My pops recently purchased a 2005 Saab 9-2x Linear, cold weather package (guessing it is that package since heated seats and wipers, no fogs or sunroof.) But... unfortunately it was leaking oil out of the exhaust pipe... yes literately oil was spewing out of the exhaust. Along with lots of smoke.

Im thinking of a WRX swap in the future if i still have the car/get the car. Or maybe just set it up to run a small turbo. I know the car has at least 165 HP stock, id love to get 180 out of it minimum. 200 would be nice.... 250 would be great, and id probably leave it at that. If you guys have any suggestions or advice you're more than welcome to share! I want to make this Saabaru one bad ass car. And i know this might be a slight challenge since exterior wise there isnt much.

Quick update for those who care/are interested hahaha

All the parts that me and my dad needed are all at home now. My dad put the engine together, and all that needs to be done is pop the engine in, connect everything, finish up in the engine bay, and turn the key. Then just some minor adjustments and a tune up and we are good to go. My spring break starts this friday (March 14th), so this is going to be the time to finish it off and practice driving stick shift. Cant wait. Ill do some other updates such as the interior and exterior cleaning. The before and after should be a huge difference.

Also got a quick question: Did any of you own a 2.5L AWD, and then a WRX or vice versa and which one did you notice any huge differences in driving any of the 2 cars (minus the 70-90 HP difference lol)? Kinda curious, because i might do mods to this just nothing big. Thinking that if this car dosent prove to me to be fun to drive its gonna come down to selling it and picking up maybe a WRX or something else.

From what i noticed a lot of them are on the East Coast. Or at least where there is a lot of snow during winter haha. This one came from Michigan from what i remember. (would have to double check the stuff that came with the car)
