New to the subaru world!

just bought a '91 4wd atx wagon.
please teach me the ways of a subaru as it is my first, and completly different from a toyota.

just looking for handling equipment and some horsepower right now, so send me to some parts.

Welcome. I'm also near Tacoma, so it's good to have more WW people
here. :D

We've got a wealth of information here, as well as good suggestions, but we're still trying to piece this place back together again.

I know a fair bit about subaru suspension, but if you'd tell us a bit about what you're looking for in your ride, we'd be able to give better suggestions. Yours is an NA, right? (no turbo) I'm afraid there's not a whole helluva lot you can do to make gobs of power, but you can create a pretty fun daily driver, and of course, a good suspension will make your car pretty punchy, anyway.

PM if you'd like, I'd be more than happy meet up and give you a little run-down on the EJ22 (the engine in your legacy) since it sounds like you've got some engine experience to begin with..

Welcome to SLi! It's always good to have another 1st gen legacy around.

yeah its n/a...
how hard would it be to put a turbo on the ej22?
will it fit directly on the mainfold?
Im just looking to make this daily driver a little more fun, but if a turbo would just 'bolt-on' I might consider it.
If it doesn't, I'll pass.

can you guys tell me the chasis codes. I see BE, BG, etc. but have no clue as to what year they are. Is there a different code in relation to the wagon and sedan?

Check out this link, It may give you some idea what is what.


And welcome :D

I have an L and an LS and soon to have a BD/BG but for now I have (2) BJ's.

Yes they feel good.

ATX= automatic transmision
MTX= manual transmision

mine is a LS trim BJ

sorry about the confusion

It's all good, brother. We just aren't used to different ways to say the same thing, that's all.

Good thing I said something....

I'm a have to brings you to school.

Auto = 4EAT

Wow! I should have left the picture up. Some nerve for a newbee...

I was just playing but if you want to be an arsehole then we can go there.

Not a good way to make a first impression.
