    Lodollar92lx : 1994 Subaru Lega-STi Wagon

    welp, guess ill share whats been taking my focus away from my Accord....
    My faithful DD 94 Leggy wagon, while being awesome in the snow, and very reliable had a major flaw.... 90awhp. I dealt with it for 4 years before i couldnt stand it any more..... This was supposed to be a very straight foward simple project: swap turbo 2.2 motor from a 92 legacy turbo into my n/a wagon chassis, keep the stock trans, and do a mild turbo upgrade..... well, things dont always go as planned. The stock turbo sohc SUCK. Bad... tiny ports, tiny valves, amke no power above 5k... SO i figured, while the engine was out, id swap a set of DOHC n/a heads from a 98 outback wagon since they are a direct bolt on... Once the heads were sorted, i figured "hey, better head flow = bigger turbo more efficiently" so the stock turbo was ditched for a stock 05 sti unit...
    Perfect, should make 200whp on stock boost....

    Did the swap, which was pretty damn easy since subarus are like legos. Added a nice FMIC with all the needed piping, built a nice 3" turbo back exhaust with a big HKS carbon muffler and called it good for a while.....

    fast forward 6 months, i was getting worried about the longevity of the stock 5mt trans.... the wrx 5mt units are better, but not bullet proof.... SO thats when i justified the 05 STi six speed swap... and i ended up overbuilding it further and adding the sti rear lsd diff, the axles, and the OMG-my-eyes popped-out-of-my-head Gold 4pot/2pot Brembo brake setup.

    In its current state of tune, with a JDM chipped and tuned wrx ecu, and JDM 22B STi turbo, the car makes about 290hp and 280tq at all 4 wheels. Best time at the track is 13.2 @ 101mph, with a 1.8 60ft in a 3385lb car.

    Heres the complete build mod list...

    These are older pics from when i had 18"s this summer

    got over the 18's and went to the Advan 17's with a wider tire.

    The turbo and MAF sensor are about maxed out, and the injectors are close. Probably going to build a twin scroll GT30R setup next, with a different ecu and maf setup and go for a reliable quick spooling 400awhp since my driveline is king kong and will hold the power no problemo...

                            Spiker, alot of guys out your way are into building these older legacys..

                            Future plans are forged internals and a GT30R turbo.
