Default 2.2L Turbo Outback Sport

I bought a turbo kit off of a guy with a wrx that is building a bigger kit. I have a 2.2L 1999 Outback Sport. This should fit, right? Does anyone have step by step instructions on putting a turbo on the non turbo motor? I have no idea about the vacume lines, but the rest I can probably manage, but a good set of directions would be a major plus. Also, does anyone know the best place to get oil feed and return lines, with the proper hardware to put them on? I know of WWW.ISRPERFORMANCE.com they have a pretty complete oil kit, but is this the best kit and price?
Thanks for any help.

also, what about the ECU. Does the ECU need any modification for the turbo, is a turbo timer necessary, I know nothing about the computer and vacume parts.

What was included in the kit? What company distributes it? More info would help us help you.

If there is no form of engine management included in the kit, it is suggested to run (BARE MINIMUM) a rising-rate fuel pressure regulator, A'PEXi S-AFC (or some other fuel controller)...

It has up-pipe, downpipe, BOV, IC, turbo, wastegate, and I already have a 2.5" catback. This is off of a WRX, so it is everything that was on his car, will it fit? Does anyone know where I might get some type of ECU management + harness for my year?

You'll need a WRX crossmember or old Turbo Legacy crossmember to be able to use those pipes. There may be other modifications necessary.

There's a few threads on this...but you're venturing into a setup that is commonly done, but is not a straight add-on of parts. You'll need a lot of little things, so when you install it, set aside a few days to run and grab parts.

Actually, I have to disagree with you here. He won't have to change crossmembers just to use the pipes that he bought off of the car. You need to replace the crossmember to use WRX headers, to fit the upppipe.

Unfortunately, the uppipe probably will not line up properly with your Outback's headers. You'll not only have to replace your crossmember, but you'll need WRX headers, perhaps a new thermostat (since the stock one sticks out too much), and a new sway bar (which will fit along with the crossmember).

Sorry dude, looks like it might be alot more work than you thought.

There IS hope however. What you could do, is find a shop that will custom fabricate for you an uppipe that will fit your stock headers. Then you won't need to replace the crossmember to fit WRX headers. Just make sure you leave enough room for the turbo, and downpipe as well.

Good luck! I hope I didn't scare you. And of course, my info could be wrong so please take it with a grain of salt. I'm sure someone with actual experience will chime in here and give you a better scoupe.

LaterZ!
Darren!!

does anyone know of anyone who has done this? Should I even bother, or will the ECU fight it, and it just be too much bother making parts fit?

It's been done and it's well worth it. I have the up pipe you need in stock for $175 which includes the shipping. You will need to have a down pipe fabricated as I don't have time to make any right now. I have the flange you'll need tho for the DP.

Check out my site for more info, just click the little www under this post.

does anyone know how to hook up the vacume lines to the turbo, also, will it run without any engine management except for stock? Where can I get good prices on gauges and a gauge pod that fits nicely?
Thanks

I'm no expert but it should run without standalone EMS. The stock ECU will probably not be too good of a match for the turbo (2.2L normal aspirated tuning). You should try and pick up an A'PEXi S-AFC (to electronically modify fuel delivery and parameters) and a J&S Safeguard (to keep the evils of detonation at bay). That together will be a good $700 but for $800-1000 more you can get Link fully-programmable, full stand-alone engine management and go nuts

Good luck with your turbo setup and keep us posted.

wow, I can't believe nobody's done this yet.

FAQ and Threads of Note- Read me first!

Tons of info in there related to your path, take some time and read through them all. I'd say all your questions should be answered there.
