I have a 2000 Subaru Outback with a lot of Ks on it... 300000 to be exact. Car runs completely fine, I was just wondering about a few things, first off, would it be worth putting a smaller turbo on it or has the engine done too many Ks to do that? Or another option was to engine swap it? I am not to experienced with engine swapping but was thinking another Subaru engine, maybe a turbo EJ20 or the engine out of the H6 Outbacks, am preferably wanting a turbo. Also, if I engine swapped with an EJ20, what else would I need to swap? Have a small idea but am not certain what Subaru parts work together... Am not looking at buying a new car, this car would just be for a build and something cool to have. Also, I was looking into buying an OBD II controller for it but have found out that they do not work in my model in Australia... If anyone knew what did work it would be great as I have an engine light that comes on every now and again and am wanting to check it out.

 

Thanks!

Engine light is probably the knock sensor.

Best of luck with the swap. It's a BIG job!
