why would you want a twin turbo motor? The motor will not fix on a LHD layout as the turbo on the left side will hit the brake booster and such

if they are selling it for cheap, you could be WRX exhaust and turbo plumping on it most likey - but I am not sure if you could trick the b4 ECU into a single turbo layout.

bottom line - forget it. If you are going o get a complete japanese engine get one you can use.. lol

I like the mail wagon idea.
Its not much work to change over to single turbo, its what the B4 guys do when they want more power. Sometimes they go real cheap because they don't sell well.

most US importers sell them for more than a single turbo EJ20. They figure 2 is better than 1. You can get an EJ20G from a Legacy 2.0Gt for $650, while the TT version runs around $1150...

I have never seen any of the RHD Legacy Sedans in the states. All I have seen is wagons. They pop up on ebay every once in a while. Most of the time they are beat to **** because the people driving them hit mail boxes and other random things.

I considered doing this. I wanted a RHD with a TT, but went the cheap way. Turbo BD is fun.

95 Legacy is OBD II, my car is OBD II. And yes if I moved to Boise I would have to do OBD2 emissions. I am surprised you didn't know that from all the times you have worked on my car.

I have found a place in Washington that can get an entire front clip for about 3k. That would be fun. I would love to do a RHD conversion to my car.

mail wagon? look at paying about 4k for a beat up one with tons of miles then about 2 to 4k for a font clip. Maybe Cobb would do this. They have dont RHD conversions in the past.

I believe the B4 was sequential turbo - not twin turbo

There is a HUGE difference.

never driven a turbo car before. But i was at the junkyard saturday and started up a legacy turbo. Thing was f'd up!! I had to floor it while holding the key on for like 20sec until the engine could run by itself. Smoke was everywhere! So i put it in drive and it moved about 2 ft and died. BUt hey, i drove a turbo!

It was and it has a nice dead spot in the middle of the power band.
