Well my wife killed the last car I got her and said well I need another one on Friday night so I went onto Gumtree looking for a 2005 outback. Soon found one for 5K and when we went down for a look the guy said he had a better one. Now the one we first looked was a 3 litre 6 cylinder and he said he had a 4 cylinder 2006 one in the other yard. Well the other one was straight as a die and only 210K on the clock so after a test run we bought it.

 

I drove it home and what a nice car and I did ask if I go grab the other one so we had one each only to be told a big NO (WAAAAAA)

 

Cheers Bryan

Anyway after thinking about did a bit of research and today I'm picking up that 3 litre 6 cylinder 2005 Outback for myself so now we will have a pair of them. Now that 3 litre enging according to wiki is 291 hp as stock so it should have a bit of grunt. I am thinking once I take a good look of upgrading it to twin turbos to boost the hp so when those young wankers want to tailgate me I can blow them away with a simple press of the pedal.

 

Cheers Bryan

Ooh twin outbacks, nice!

Twin turbo conversion will be quite the build. Have you looked at the MCM boy’s Super Gramps build? I believe that is a single turbo and it does quite well. You’ve basically got the same platform to begin with. They’ve got the 3.6L from a Tribeca.

Certainly doable. Not cheap though.

I can see you spending at least 10 to 15K for a turbo conversion,

Is your car auto or manual ??

Hey bennie,

I think this outback has the EZ30R  engine.
