Hi guys, i'm his friend with the 1.8T

His car is A/T and I was wondering what the max torque and HP the transmission is reliable for and if it is low, are there any after market torque converters available that are tested and proven?

The stage I turbo kit sounds good, what other info do you have (model and make of the turbo, fitment, etc.) and does it require custom software to run at optimum levels?

I'm not familiar with the Legacy platform, what is the largest exhaust you can run? Is it possible to run a full 3" turbo-back with no rubbing or fitment issues?

The gas up here is great, (94 octane) and I run a 93 octane program full-time and it works perfectly.

Thanks in advance.
