All this has inspired me to look randomly at Legacys on eBay, must admit I do like! Beginner question.... whats the twin scroll mean? Is this twin turbo, small into big sort of thing?
No, it's one turbo but has two inlets so delivers smoother power. In practice it means there's no noticeable turbo lag from lower revs, but also no big wallop of power like with a bigger single turbo.
Gen 3 Legacy was twin turbo (two separate turbos) and Gen 4 was twinscroll turbo. There are also flat six 3 litre (H6) normally aspirated in both generations.
Gen 4 had a facelift in about 2006, and there are differences between pre- and post-facelift so you'd want to decide about that too. Facelift Gen 4s have a few more toys, and the autos had flappy paddles, but they cost more and some are in the higher tax bracket (£550pa). Engines are the same, but facelift come with multiple engine modes. 'Spec.B' mostly means they have Bilstein suspension, though that may have been replaced by now.
Mine is a Gen 4 JDM pre-facelift twinscroll spec B:
That is VERY nice i must say! Power, practicality with also family duties ability. 295bhp is ideal i reckon!
Definitely not many 3.6s around, is it JDM or Australian? I hear they are very good with a supercharger...
My twinscroll has been remapped but is otherwise completely standard, I got 295bhp on the dyno which is plenty for the 'sensible family car'!
Mine was standard apart from the remap, double DIN conversion and I added cruise control... Chap I sold it to (via UKLegacy) appears to log into the forum now and then still
The outback is actually a UK version, so pretty rare! When I was looking to get rid of the RR there were only 3 for sale in the UK! I believe Lowender may have looked at it as well - when he picked his seat up from me a while ago he recognised it! Small world..
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I've got some of those with the grooves cut into them, so they look like a giant black paracetamol tablet, lol - unfortunately I can't get the trolley jack underneath the car without them, nevermind with them...
