Skip to last sentence for long story short.

I was driving up thousands of feet up to the mountains from San Diego to Mammoth Lakes, CA in my 2004 Forester XT. I was checking coolant frequently but oil level might have been a little low and my turbo blew up and soon afterwards my head gaskets blew badly.

I sat around Bishop for 2 days then got a ride home and drove back up with a trailer the next day. On the way back a buddy told us about JDM motorsports and an hour later we were dropping it off for a swap. They called us the next day and said the turbo didn’t work so I payed $200 for a forester turbo to put on there instead.

I have the v39 turbo and I want to put it on. What parts do I need and where is the cheapest place to get them?

I need a tune, downpipe and an inter cooler I believe? anyone could help me out on what the best options are for those at a good price I would really appreciate it!

Also, how do I know if I have AVCS? I know the engine is capable for it.

Thank you!

You need to have this conversation with the shop that installed this engine.

It's not clear if your ECU was replaced with a JDM ECU or not. If not, you will unlikely be able to use the AVCS on the exhaust cam.
