Subaru L series (Leone)


Brisbane, Queensland
Subaru L series 1.8
Hi everybody,
I just bought a 1992 Subaru L series (Leone).
It was a very cheap deal but I had to/had to change
A lot of things on it (drive shafts, lower, ball joints,
flame gaskets, filters, tires ect.)
I really like the car, but it's a little bit weak. I'd like to know
If it is possible to fit a turbo kit in easily or there is any solution
Make a little more horsepowers to it.
Regards BTomy
We get asked this question a lot so have a look at this thread which covers the basics. I have to admire your ambition though!:D And I hope you pull it off.
Cheap turbos can be purchased from breakers yards which are ideal for a try it and see type project.:bigsmile:

Please note that I don't think it is worth adding a turbo to an old car with a small capacity engine. There is nothing stopping you but the money and hassle will just not be worth the power gain you get. It is better to just buy a better car for your tuning project.:confused:

Adding a turbo is a major engineering task and without a kit with full instructions and all the parts you need there is a big risk of blowing up the engine. Expect to spend 50 hours upwards on a project of this type.

This is not the sort of modification you should undertake unless you are mechanically competent and know what you are doing.

It is worth looking at superchargers as these are generally much easier to install than a turbo is.
Thank you Wayne,
It is good to know what can I expect, from the little "beast" :).
I'm a little bit sad, cause I hoped that can be added a few extra
horse powers easily to it. Is it a kind of car what can take you to a lot
of place and you don't have to be afraid if you might damage it,
doesn't cost a fortune to fix it. But if you say the extra power does not
worth energy, money and even I can blow the engine up, I think I'll leave as it is.
But thanks for your help again!
