Check the Legacy forum and look back 30 days or so. You'll get lots of ideas and many links to web-sites and vendors. Have fun!

If you're looking for for fun mods... go with a bigger rear sway bar and a short shifter.

CAUTION: The rear bar will alter the handling charactoristics of the car. You'll get less body roll and less understeer (push). The bigger the bar in back the more likely the car will want to swap ends (oversteer). I'd recommend, because the legacy is a heavier car, a 18mm bar in the back. You'll notice a difference in the handling right away.

2nd. The short shifter really adds an element of fun to the car. The stock shifter has a luxo-barge feel (majorly mooshy with the built in dampener) with the rowing of a boat (long throws). ITs much more fun to pull through the gears with a shorter shifter.

3rd. Tires. tires tires. You've heard it all over the board. RE92s suck for everything except going straight on your commute to work. (acutally, i've got no complaints about them in the snow... but I live in DE... thus we dont get much).
Performance tires such as Kuhmos (cheap and very good... but lower wear rating) or RE730s are the way to go for summer driving. DONT use these in the SNOW! they are meant for dry/rain conditions.

(not a post whore with REAL answers... and I own a legacy)

1999 Legacy Outback
Blue w/ Paint Chips & Mud


My outback has an 18mm bar in the back, and it is only tail happy on very very very very very very slick surfaces (read: wet clay roads).

I want to upsize the bar, but have my doubts about it... mainly because the car doesn't always have the power to recover from oversteer.

If I had the 5speed it wouldn't be such a problem.

So my next major upgrade will probably be going to all urethane bushing since the rubber OE ones are rotting and falling apart right now.

I also have listed the various mods I've done on my web page, http://www.remarcable.net/misc/legacy_outback/

There are pictures too!

You can get: intake, all sorts of brake goodies, suspension bits, bigger rear sway bar is a must, as are nicer tires, if not wheels too. On my Legacy GT wagon (sold in less than a week...lordy!) I had KVR CD rotors and carbon fibre pads, stainless lines with SuperBlue in the system, bigger rear swaybar, DMS Gold coilovers, Stromung exhaust (remarcable has it now) and 17" P1 wheels with Dunlop 9000 rubber. The car was absolutely fantastic, though not fantastic enough to make me immune to the allure of a silver WRX wagon.

You can do short shift kits, end links, the list goes on. The best intake for power seems to be Rallispec, but good luck getting one from them. Pop this question in the Legacy forum, too. You should get plenty of answers.
