The Need for Boost Posted November 14, 2014 Share Posted November 14, 2014 Hi, I need some real decent advice please. I am currently teaching in KSA, I bought a Subaru turbo 1994 with much of it changed to a 1999, including its engine. It was advertised as an STi but it was not except a turbo! I was a complete beginner and got it too expensive as others told me afterwards and after I read more. I rushed and was hasty and lost a lot of money trying to repair it. The damn Subaru Mechanic in Riyadh city was a cowboy and when I received it after an engine and axle replacement it got major issues within 30 mins and the Boost Gauge was missing and he claimed he doesn't have it! Anyway, I was down Jeddah city and took it to the Subaru dealers, their mechanic told me to take it to a good Subaru Mechanic round the corner who usually has lots of Subaru Projects usually. He checked it out and said that at the least it has a water and air and exhaust leakage. Anyway as I am now returning home to enjoy life again, I sold it. When a buyer got it checked, the Mechanics told him that it has also other issues. I had to sell it cheap. So I lost a lot of money from my old 1997 GT Mustang and now this Subaru. I got ripped off and had no idea about these cars, but want to get a Subaru Impreza turbo again as it was so much fun when running well, I reached 150MPH easily one time on a very good road I knew well at a low traffic time, and loved the boost and no car around me had a chance at the traffic lights if they tried me on, by the 2nd gear they were behind me. But this time I don't want to be hasty, so when I return after a few months to the Midlands I will start my search. I want to get one as a second car, a weekend or cruising car. So will limit my budget. Then will maintain it and step by step renew and modify various parts. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
