Default Another Turbo Legacy back on the road!

i guess this goes in this Forum!?! Anyway I have been working on this in my spare time for a buddy of mine. It's a 91 turbo Legacy.

ej22t block rebuilt with new bearings/rings/seals/etc
04 WRX heads and manifold
TWE valve springs. (for cams later)
Full GPMoto twin-scroll kit with 3" downpipe
Tial 38mm Wastegate
Garrett gt32 turbo
Custom FMIC by Rallitek.com
Titanium catback (Amazing how lite this thing is.)
KYB AGX struts for a RS
H&R Springs for a RS. Will go WRX to raise the rear a little.
01 RS seats
AEM EMS with UEGO for a WRX custom wired by me.
Blitz EBC
Greddy Turbo timer
06 WRX TR front brakes Brand new from Subaru
Braided brake lines from Rallitek.com
STI master cylinder (to be installed)
Some other stuff I'm sure i forgot.
Let me know what you think!







Still needs a good tune in it but it drives beautifully. It also has WRX coil packs and WRX modded injectors so running this thing at 30-35psi again shouldn't be a problem. As a little history this was my last setup that I donated back to my friend. He had an ej20g swap before this and donated the ej22t block to me. I drove 5000miles on it before going ej257. Now it is back in it's home to make this Legacy go fast.

Looks like you forgot to mention the Koyo aluminum rad.

I seem to remember when this was posted over on LegacyCentral. I love how you have the I/C pipes run.

Always great seeing another slick '91 running around. I am hoping to run some similar stuff (twin-scroll, early WRX heads or SOHC RS heads, FMIC, Blah, Blah.....).

The legacy pink injectors I assume would be high 200s maxed out. But this car has almost 800cc injectors. The ej22t was the first subaru motor I rebuilt. Then I spent way to much money on my 93 Imreza L. I imagine we should be able to push high 300 Whp on this car. The only problem is that it has super low compression, 7.7:1. You can run tons of boost but it limits the HP per pound. hopefully we will be on the dyno to get some real number results and I will post them up. This was old setup in my L and I had no problem keeping up with 400Whp STIs.

Yep, that also. Oh, and Fog lights integrated into the Blinkers. Kelly who use to work for Rallitek made those for his Legacy Turbo and they ended up on this car. They are pretty neat.

Yep put in a WRX gear I had laying around. The original setup used a LINK with a RS cam gear that was machined out to bolt onto the WRX camshaft. Pretty slick I don't know why more people haven't done that. Or maybe I just don't hear about it. For this setup I took a WRX jumper harness and cut off all of the plugs. Then I went through wire by wire linking every wire up to the Legacy harness. Then I made a custom motor harness with extra harness bits I had laying around merging together legacy stuff and WRX stuff. We also changed over to The WRX crossover pipe and temp sender for the guage and the AEM. The only difference is this car doesn't have the WRX fuel pump controller. I just setup an output to run the fuel pump like a normal car and wired in a 3 BAR map sensor.

Why would he do that? The '91 has more aggressive styling, IMHO.

I seem to collect things... I have many boxes labeled Mitsu, Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Wiring harness and a huge bolt bin. I also have a really nice work bench that makes things easier. If I want to make the drive to my fathers house (an hour or more). He has a 80ft x 100ft shop with a lift, paintbooth, woodshop, nice welder, etc. It's nice to live out in the sticks were you have lots of room. He also is nice enough to store a few cars for me. my 66 Lemans and a rx7 track car I have been working on for my girlfriend.

1) it wouldn't matter. 2) I doubt the Koyo will ever overheat. 3) The cover is already back on. The pic was taken after initial setup.

I was using a feeler gauge to see the best clearance between the cam sensor and timing marks that resulted in the best signal to the AEM.

Default turbo legacy

nice legacy! I also have a 93turbo with a 5 spd, lost the EJ22t to warped cylinders and now run a JDM ej20 with a link plus. Now I need a tranny solution! any ideas? STI 6 spd? is the stock 5 spd worth rebuilding if i plan on running over 300HP?

Thanks. The car when through WA emissions yesterday and passed with flying colors. Shortly after the clutch master cylinder went out. ... I swear this car is my nemesis. Soon everything on the car will be new do to failure.

By the way the car has now hit 30psi at 18degrees of timing on pump gas. Time to put it on the dyno.

As for a tranny I say PPG gears or 6 speed. I myself will be doing PPG gears soon on my impreza L.

I blew 2nd in my JDM 4.11 box in gear with around 300-320hp, currently have 2 5 spd's in case 1 breaks but ive been looking at the 6spd conversion as the best value for money upgrade.

Very nice car Brydon, i may be slightly bias here being a fellow legacy fan
