Hello I'm new to this forum. I have a 05 subaru legacy gt turbo. I recently blew the motor and decided to rebuild it. Was thinking bout up grading and putting more power down. Is there anyone out there thats building these motors? Perhaps maybe even stroking it? Was hoping for a direction to go in or someone to talk to bout this. Thanks! It is automatic too

How much power are you planning on putting down?Usually with a turbo motor you build it to stock specs and then up the boost/fuel once its back together unless your going for mondo horsepower.

NASIOC has gobs of turbo related information and builds.  yes there are lots of options for building these motors, yo'ull have to decide what you want to get into like Uberoo just said....stock HP boosted...or rebuild with beefed up rods, pistons...heads....$$$$  nasioc will have lots of info on that.


should be running full synthetic and changing the oil often.  these motors have issues with conventional oil.
