mantiis Posted July 14, 2012 Share Posted July 14, 2012 Hey guys, I have an 07 LGT, automatic, 48k miles with a blown turbo sitting at the dealer. They want $2000 parts and labor to fix it with a stock turbo from Subaru, but I figured since I am spending money anyway to replace the turbo, maybe I should upgrade the turbo to something aftermarket. I get the sense that generally coming from stock, a new turbo is not the first pick when upgrading, but in this case I already blew my turbo and don't want to double charge myself, now and later if I replace the stock and want to upgrade later. The choices I have at the moment are upgrade to a AMR CX500, let the dealer install it, limp the car home 8 miles and let it sit until the tuner can fit me in, then add a few extra mods like FP, injectors, AP, etc. or pay the $2000 for a stock replacement, wait until I have some more money and just go the route of intake, exhaust, AP, etc without an upgraded turbo. I am really stuck as to what I should do. I don't mind spending perhaps $3000 total at the moment, maybe a little more if I can be done with it. I never had any other issues with the car. I don't really want to blow my engine or transmission soon either. I have been telling the dealer to sit on it for a while until I figure out what to do and detail it in the meantime. Any suggestions fellas? It will be for street driving, but I love me a fast car Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
