subaru questions

hey ppl
just a few questions, hope u can shine a light....

when upgrading an engine, say a ej22, and your looking to get the best performance out of the engine and vehicle, what else needs upgrading??

also what upgrades have people done to their scooby engines??

what are the insurance guys like with new, power-fuller engine?? i have a 87 1.9 petrol panel van, im 21 and cost me 980 for a year. does a turbo greatly up the money??

how easy/hard is it to do??? i have not alot of skill n tools, would people recomend a garage do it or can it work out better if its diy???

thanks all round

at 21 your insurance will go up big on a ej22 engine! I did all mine myself tho if you pay some one to do it look at at least 3000 to 4000 for it converted!!!!

no doubt about that, just wanted to see if anyone could give a guess at what i might be looking to pay??

have you just fitted the engine, or have upgraded brakes, suspension etc aswell?? in other words will the stock parts be able to keep with the boost in power??
