Question What parts do i need to add a turbo to my car?

I wanna add a turbo to my 2000 Subaru Legacy GT Limited. Im currently running a Bomz Racing Intake which adds only like 10 HP or so. I've decided that I wanna go turbo kit in the upcoming months. Could someone please list ALL the parts I would need to buy to install it. Also, what about ECU? Rather than buying all parts seperately, do you reccomend buying this kit: http://www.spomotorsports.com/Catego...tomerID=105145

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey whats up!

I personally went with a Ludespeed kit, i think they are the best for the money, but the avo kits are supposed to be awesome too.

do you have a manual or an automatic? if its a manual you may as well save some money and get the ludespeed because you wont be able to use the Link plus that comes with the avo kit, which is usually the big attraction because it comes pretuned. you will need to get some different engine management, Joe and I are using the Autronic, which i think is awesome and obviously joe does too cause he originally convinced me to get it, and we thought this to be our only option but apparently there are others to use now such as the Haltech.

I have an automatic and one thing i discovered is that i could have in fact gone with a link plus because the crank and cam triggers are the same, this would have saved me about 600 dollars but in the long run i am very glad i went with the autronic because i dont need to change maps for different weather and such and its close to factory reliability(although i havent experienced winter yet)

hope that helps some, also check with Joe and I with questions on things because there are many differences between the RS and our cars and assumptions is what got me into trouble. But of course everyone else is very knowledgable but with fitament questions or stuff like that joe and i know for sure.

What about the Legacy guys with the good ol' ej22? I'm assuming there would be some differences in parts between the 2.5 and the 2.2. Would it be cheaper to go with a homemade kit as opposed to a pre-made one?

Also- PHATsuby, I have an auto as well, but since my car is a '95, do you know what I would have to do for an ECU?

hmm, i am not as familiar with the 95's basically i think the big thing to figure out is what crank and cam triggers you have, if you have the same configuration as me you could use a link plus like the RS guys or the Autronic, actually i dont know if there is anything besides the special subaru configuration(6 position crank, 7 position cam) and the newer wrx configuration(both of which the autronic can do) but find that out first and then it would just be a little investigation into the similarities of your car and mine and an RS if you decide on a kit(i think its the easiest) that way you can determine what may need to be custom made and what would just bolt on.

hope that helps some

edit: also i just remembered that PDM claims to have kits that work on all the subaru engines 2.2 and 2.5. so i would definitely talk to them, and look at their kits, they look pretty good actually, and if they are proven to work then go for it, but i would do better engine management if possible instead of the piggy backs they use(basically to save money).
