Unbolt the intercooler and look for oil in there and the pipes , if there is a large amount then it could well be the oil seals in the turbo gone. Check this is the cause first before spending your cash. The turbo is a TD04 as far as I know on the bugeye

I thought that the TD06 16G/20G's were on the STI as standard and yes they are a bolt on fitment as they use the same housing as the TD04 you and i have.

Prob a ihi vf35 on a bug sti - still interchangeable but you will need injectors an uprated fuel pump and sti intercooler and a remap to run safely on a wrx. Will be so much faster with this done. Standard wrx turbo is td04
