Carefully !! LMAO- depends on what parts you have. You might skip over to: bbs.legacycentral.org to see what a few others have done.

IF you have all of the pipes from turbo to intake, it should pretty much bolt up with a few tweaks. The diverter tube will also need some tweaking.

Take pics of what you have and it should be easier to see.

For my SAAB intercooler setup on my turbo I had to fab the connecting pipe from turbo to intercooler and also fab a new diverter outlet and setup.

I assume you are talking about an AWIC intercooler? You need to run a pair of hoses to the front of the car and get a water pump for it. A fairly common solution is to remove the AC and use that bracket. You can get a belt driven one or an electric. It just has to be in-line, and not block mounted. Johnson Marine makes a few for RV's that can be used.

Then you need a heat exchanger to mount into the front grill. Jegs or JC whitney sell units as oil or tranny coolers that work just fine. Just don't go too small. 8x 15 is about the minimum you want.

Then you have to fabricate some inlet plumbing, unless yours came with it. But even if it did, you need a JDM VF10/11 that is clocked about 10 degrees different on the outlet side to run the air over to the TB.

Napphappy, he could put a wrx scoop on it like Jake15 (over @ Legacy Central) did, he basically riveted the scoop onto his hood using exsisting mounting points, it looks pretty good.

I think the GC/GM RS hood scoop would look a bit better than a WRX scoop.

I was thinking of trying to find one for my LT once I get my Saab i/c installed.....

i was looking for one of these for a while but the only one i found was green and $60, and my WRX was black and free Eric at FranticFour here in tacoma has a RS scoop riveted to his hood to feed his i/c, its pretty nice looking too.


i really need to get some updated pics......

I hope you are joking with me. Your lack of gremilns seems to suggest you aren't. But if you read my post again, maybe you will see that I was just giving you guys some cr@p. Me feel belittled? I think you know me better than that, and know that I am pretty confident in my knowledge of these cars and their history...

yeah i used to think that they were air/air only until i saw a schematic engine drawing which showed the then new head design and it had an AWIC on it, and it thought it was RS but is said at the bottom FHI Subaru WRX 1992.
The only ones i have seen with awic are retro fitted.

We still love ya Matt
If you look at the earlier Legacy turbo's, it seems they use roughly the same intercoolers as the Imprezas, so the scoop should not be a major issue. As long as all the parts are there, it should bolt up pretty well.
