tfossum Posted December 18, 2016 Share Posted December 18, 2016 Hi all, I have a 2005 Legacy GT Ltd (5AT) with ~177K. The original turbo failed at ~125K. Seems that as of today the second turbo has also failed as I got a P0021 and the soft whine/shrieking started from the engine area. The questions I have: Is anyone aware of a good write-up/video on the removal replacement, or is the Haynes write-up close enough? (I did a quick search but nothing stood out) A couple of weeks ago I replaced the banjo bolt oil line filter leading out of the turbo with the hope of avoiding this exact situation. It seemed like a straightforward process. That said, does anyone think that could be connected or just a coincidence? I already saw oil present in the intercooler, so maybe I was late and the oil seal was already failing?[/list/ Any opinions on comparable (i.e. non-upgrade) aftermarket turbos vs. Subaru dealer sourced? I appreciate any thoughts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
