Default Is it possible / has it been done

Has anyone heard of a H-6 twin turbo swap into a '98 (or the same model) Legacy?

gimme Legacy TPH wagon!


It would probably be an aftermarket custom twin setup on an EG33 or EZ30. Wouldn't a Porsche engine require a special transmission since it's coming out of a RWD car? In any case, I'd be concerned about the massive forward shift in the weight distribution with all that stuff up front. Time for that CF hood and battery relocation (which is probably required to make room for the extra turbo). It'd be an interesting project if anyone has oodles of spare cash laying around.

Driven by guts inside!

I think he means the H-6 3.0 from the MY03 Outback. I have never heard of anyone with it. It would be cool to see if it can be done.

It's sort of a dream of mine to do one of these but as a super-charged vs. bi-turbo. I think the mechanics/electronics of it would be too daunting as a bi-turbo unless, like AGscooby noted, you have scads of cash lying around. The other half of the dream is to drop in an STI 6MT, equipped with front and center LSDs, in there right behind that 6 cylinder beast. When was that last time you said wahoo?
