If you can't afford a swap, its probably not a good idea to be throwing boost on there. One mistake and you'll be carless. Always keep enough money on hand to make sure your not riding the bus because something didn't go right.

Thats some low miles for a MY2000. If that outback has the 2.5L, you could piece together a kit from a wrecked WRX. you'll need the Crossmember, headers, uppipe, turbo, downpipe, coolant and oil lines, intercooler, intake and exhaust stuff. a WRX turbo won't go below 8 PSI so your going to some fuel and timing mods to make it support that kind of boost.

You could also peice together stuff from a Turbo Legacy. And there is also a website that sells individual parts so you can make your own kit too. But i have no idea what its called.
