So what do you guys think of this...

1998 Subaru impreza outback sport. Bore out the displacement to 2.5, port and polish the engine. Throw on a nice t3/t4 turbo, and exhaust and a possible set of coils. Anyone ever tried this, and if not, you guys think its a good idea?

been done a few times.

Would be easier to drop in a usdm sti shortblock w/ 2.5rs built heads and run it off an AEM ECU.
Then you will have a little more reliability and loads more power.

if you used a usdm sti block w/wrx or 2.5rs heads you bypass dbw, and gas pedal swap. can you still use the obs clutch plate setup? wrx and sti are different, push versus pull style right? but if it's the right diameter it should fit and maybe hold the power? that sounds like the swap for me! my obs-t has o.k. power, but it's never enough! thanks for info!

Your stock clutch won't hold that kind of power. But both Exedy and ACT make stronger clutches/pressure plates for your gearbox...
