2.5 N/A to Turbo

10626 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  hustler
I am in the planning stages of adding a turbo to my 2004 Outback 2.5 5mt. Part of my reason for doing this to my existing car is (1) cheaper insurance (2) I like the "sleeper" status of no one knowing my car has a turbo. I was thinking of going with the factory setup off of an 04 Baja Turbo or Forester XT.

Has anyone done this yet? I really don't want to do a complete motor swap, as my car only has 42k on it. OR is there a supercharger available for these cars?

Anyone have suggestions (besides trading it in for a newer OBXT)?

There are a lot of threads around here on this topic, I suggest you use the forum search. Short version:

Easiest - Swap the car for one with a turbo from the beginning
Less easy - full engine swap - including plumbing, turbo, harness & ECU
Masochistic - any other route
