Default trying to turbo 95' 2.2 wagon

Me and my buddy are trying to turbo his 95 2.2 impreza wagon. we have no idea what kind of parts we need to do this conversion. Not trying to spend a lot of money were just gonna get used parts maybe some 02-03 wrx parts if possible. so if anybody knows what parts we need to do this job we'd appreciate it.

There are 100 different ways to turbo a subaru engine.

If he plans on running more than 6 psi of boost he should be looking into a WRX or STI engine swap. The non-turbo engines do not hold up to boost well.

If 6 psi is all he wants he'll need a turbo exhaust manifold and up pipe, a FPR, a better fuel pump, a WRX front crossmember (or a turbo legacy crossmember), an intercooler, a turbo (I'd recommend a TD04 for low boost on the 2.2), an exhaust that will fit, the applicable intake piping to make it all fit, and probably a bunch of other parts. You can do it for around $1500, but don't expect 300 hp without an engine swap.

If you want to run low boost then go with a VF11. Full 8 psi boost @ 2,300 if really low end torque and quicker spool is your thing.

If you're looking for anything with more horsepower, then I suggest some hybrid heads, and maybe forged internals


Time to swap out the engine/harness.
