1996 Turbo Outback
9psi on 91 No EM

Lightbulb Help me turbo my Outback

Hey all, I probably just need you to actually talk some sense into me.

I'm currently driving my '96 Outback from San Ramon to Hayward at least 3 times a week. I am a student and don't have much money to really work with but if things came together for cheap enough I would consider doing this.

My car is super reliable and gets decent mileage. I have done all my own maintenance and big jobs like clutches and headgaskets and whatnot. It currently has 265k miles and shows no real signs of wear. It doesn't eat oil etc.

Here's a short list of what I need. The goal would be no more than 5psi on stock everything.

Oh and budget would be $500 or less.

Turbo crossmember or modified stock
'06 wrx td04 (has 5psi wastegate?)
'06 wrx tmic/recirc valve
Intake bits
oil feed and drain
water feed and drain

I'm kicking myself right now for not keeping a vf10 I had and sold since that would work great here.

Not sure what I would do about exhaust since my car has single port headers. Maybe look for a set of subachad up and down-pipes.

I feel like I just got bit by the turbo bug again.
