just looking for some food for thought, im wanting to do a engine/ 5 speed tranny swap into my 1996 legacy L with a EJ22, what would be the best engine to swap in that can be turboed? ive read a couple posts on here saying the EJ25 is the best option to swap in, but just thought i would ask again. 

 

 Thanks.

2.2 if your going to throw on a turbo. It is a very strong engine and can deal with some abuse. Don't know where you saw the 2.5 to be turboed with its weak head gaskets and open decks.

quite a project. Be sure the final drive of the new tranny matches your rear diff - or just get the entire drivetrain and motor and ecu from a WRX.

Way too many miles to put a turbo on that engine, you will get blowby the first time you step on the gas and spin up the turbo.
