I am starting work on my legacy again after three years now that my outback is running again. i know many of you guys have either built or had something to do with the building of a franken motor and i get the basic plan for the motor but i kinda want more. I was thinking the standard layout but possibly doing a 30 over bore with forged pistons, maybe deck the heads some, do a port and polish job, bigger cams ( thoughts on what type of cam would be greatly appreciated), and maybe an access port to do some custom engine mapping. Again not sure how well this set up will work with my plans for the car its self but i will defiantly be needing more power and i dont want to do an sti swap because i don't want to have to wait for the turbo to get my power. I am more of a muscle car guy so thought would help, Thanks.

Not sure about the turbo tech thing i wasn't trying to put it there. And i wanted to do the build myself as i dont have the funds to buy a built one. and i enjoy engine building so it would be fun I think.
