Subaru Legacy

Compared to its little brother the impreza, the legacy is very rarely regarded as anything special or worth mentioning. The legacy was the first successful car that Subaru implemented for its rally division and allowed the development of the technologies presently found on Subaru’s trademark Imprezza. What many people don’t know is that various models of the legacy come with detuned versions of the engine used in the Imprezza STI. Although these engines are equipped with different ECU, turbo and intercooler, the block and engine internals remain the same as the STI which all adds up to lots of tuning potential. The longer chassis and the interchangeability of parts with the STI make it just as fun to tune and just as fun to race on the track. Forget all of the preconceived notions that you had of the legacy as an old persons grocery getter.
