unlikely to be the turbo itself thats leaking, either one of the banjo feeds or a rubber feed hose would be more likely??

Like alyns said its usually the metal water pipe off of the turbo that cracks/leaks theyre a bolt on part that im pretty sure you cant get new from subaru as my mate tried on his uk classic-You`re best bets to contact a breakers you wont find me recommending scoobyclinic much however for 2nd hand bits theyre good.Give em a ring.
