A friend recently picked up this old Subaru for $600. It's turbocharged from the factory!. I took it for a spin today and it was a quirky, fun ride!

The car itself was in great shape, check out the "turbo" light on the dash!

Here's short clip showing the light in action. Listen for the turbo, it is a surprisingly quick car!

They added a nice little boost gauge where the dummy buttons were:

very nice.

the dash light was interesting, never saw that before.

it does seem quick, and speedo actually moves with it. (My n/a thumps everything like a short heart attack)

I do know why they made a turbo option... :wink:

I learned recently the carb and turbo share cams... the turbo was meant to be gentler into greater power, very smart car.

a collector edition no doubt, like all of them..but the first gen ea82 turbo has some special traits (similar to the carb engine).

takes a tear down to decipher.. it really is a special one.
