    02 wrx possible bad turbo

    hello, all new here. have an 02 wrx 2.0 I believe the turbo is bad. here's what it is doing. smokes like crazy when you start it up (oil) goes away after a few. still boosts but engine is missing so feels sluggish until the r's come up to about 3000. took the cooler off today and throttle body was full of oil and so was cooler. now I only see two ways of getting oil into the cooler, turbo or vent tube comming off of engine block. Ohh one more thing boost gage is reading negative numbers. i just got this car and in this condition. If it is so that the turbo is bad what are some good choices. can I use a TD05-H supposed to be a big 16

    I agree, so check the PCV valve first. If the valve is stuck that might explain the oil.

    That's discouraging though. You can use a 16G as long as the fittings (orientation) are for a Subaru, but you'll need more fuel and a different map too.
