I have Subaru legacy 92 with 2.2l turbo engine and automatic transmission.

My question is, can I remove the turbo from the above car and install it on Subaru Impreza 97 with 2.2l engine and manual transmission? If yes how many hp I would gain by this and does the Impreza’s manual transmission stand the extra power?

I am sorry to inform you that

there is quite a bit more involved

than just slappin a turbo on a non turbo engine.

You could expect about 20 horse power and a blown engine.
(piston, rings, head gasket all come to mind)

The transmission would probably be okay
as the engine would grenade before it had a chance to
take out the tranny.

Your better bet is to take the entire lump, gear box, rear diff and
wiring with the ECU
and and and and - --

out of your SS and do the nasty.

Shame hackin' a SS like this though.

I know it hurts.
BTW we have a "search" function at the top of the page.
It will reveal testimony supporting this answer.

Yeah many people have removed the engine from the SS and put it into a impreza.
