  1. Outback Shopping
    I am looking for at a new Outback, as the one I currently drive has just turned 10 years old. We are keeping it in the family, but it is time for an upgrade. I just test drove the Limited, the did not have any Limited XTs on the the lot. I am considering upgrading to the XT, but I am not sure...

    Hello Everyone! I need some help - I'm considering buying a used 2009 Outback XT with 138K miles with a 5 gear manual transmission. I test drove the vehicle and obviously it's extremely fun to ride, especially since I test-drove it in the middle of a snow storm. However, I'm not a Subaru expert...

    Hey all, I am new to these forums but have been following them for a while. I just got my first Subaru! It is a 2021 Outback XT Onyx Edition in Magnetite Grey. I am loving this color! It is the first time I have had a dark grey car and I am in love with the way it looks in the sun. The car...

    Hey Everyone I've been a long time reader of the forums and now that I'm truly tearing into my car, I decided to post about it as well as maybe get some tips on what to do. I've successfully pulled my engine out utilizing a lot of the tips and tricks that previous owners have posted. At this...
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I recently posted another discussion about my engine making a rattling, metal on metal noise, from that I assumed it was the turbo and it had shaft play which was making the noise. Well I decided to take off the down pipe and feel the turbo for shaft play, it didn’t have any shaft play at all...

    Hello from Seattle! I’m picking up a 2005 Outback XT in silver on Monday. I have owned/co-owned around 7 Subarus in the last 10 years including 3 first gen Impreza sedans, 2 first gen OBS, a 14 XV and a 2nd gen legacy for a short time. Currently I have my 99 Impreza “WRX” with a EJ20 JDM swap...

    I did a autocross event in my car just for fun this weekend and I guess the car did not enjoy it. I wan't pushing the car too hard but it suddenly would not rev past 4k rev for 4 seconds max and then was fine after that until I reached the end of the course and it died quietly and would not...

    Iv’e recently bought a new-to-me Subaru Outback 2.5 wagon, which seems to be a flat 4; I’m not very knowledgeable in this realm, but I can’t find out if this model has a turbo or not. I’ve looked under the hood a few times, once to look for a turbo, and as you can guess I did not find one, there...

    I brought my car in to the dealership for service and they provided me with a rental car. The new 2020 2.4L Turbo Outback. It's nice and I love the bigger screen, Qi wireless charging pad, and place to keep your phone above the passenger glove box. However, the 2.4L turbo feels like a 2.4L...

    The next big thing in automobiles is the 48 volt systems that will be used in the future for things like steering, braking, e-Turbo/Supercharge, engine valve actuators etc. I love my Outback but I find the 3.6R 6cyl is under powered for my likes. I plan to use a Rechargeable 48v 14Ah 1000w...

    I am a Nubile, many concepts still incubating. So, my 05 XT 2.5 needed a new turbo, and Then the pandemic started, lost job. With no bread I undertook a mighty feat to replace it. Gave my self plenty of time and got the **** thing in, it worked. I didn't trust it because my lack of...

    I have a 2001 outback and the motor is knocking and I was looking to put something else in. A 350 small block is definitely not gonna fit (i tried to convince myself it would but the evidence for failure was just too much) what would be the best/easiest swap. I'm looking for more power than...

    It would be nice to have a Boost Gauge somewhere on that big 11.6" display. Like where it reads out the customizable stuff like Accelerator position, oil temp and coolant temp. What PSI boost is this thing running at anyway? Then I could forget i'm a old dad driving a wagon and pretend i'm 18 in...

    So I bought a 2020 Subaru Onyx XT. Still have a half tank of gas, but going to a fill up probably this weekend. Just wondering about people thoughts on using premium versus regular unleaded gasoline. What about mid-grade? I know there are benefits to using premium gas.
