Hm. Good question. Sorry I can't help you directly as I am not sure. However, the knowledgable people at this site I frequent may be able to help you out a little better. The link I'm providing you is a link to the second generation (93-99) legacy forum from If you're not a member you will have to sign up and then create a new topic. Best of luck!

you better build the motor (dished pistons to lower compression, forged crank and rods, probably a cam swap, and high strength gaskets) or you wont get more than about 5psi through the turbo befor you blow the motor, the stock compression is too high on the non turbo motors especially the gt's which have a slightly higher compression that an L model.
