First off guys there are SEVERAL ways to control the VGT off the stock truck. There are even controllers you can buy that can use multiple inputs to control teh VGT. Secondly I have seen Subarus with turbos so big it would make the ladies blush. So those are not really issues if the guy is dedicated. The hardest thing is going to be adapting the oiling, which if the guy is dedicated, can be done. Think about it guys we delete out egr coolers, how hard would it be to make an oil pipe for a turbo.

To the op, I hope you and your bud realize that what these guys are pointing out is that it is going to require some serious fab work and dedication to making this work to do it. Have fun!

ok its not that your co pilot couldent twist the knob on a potentiometer to controll it.
but the oil baffels and seals in a diesel turbo are not as "exactly as leak proof" as in a gasser turbo.THE SEALS ARE NOT THE SAME,you will get oil blowby and foul your little plugs.good luck

There is no need to have some one twist a knob, you fully control it with out touching a thing. Also diesel turbos have been used successfuly in quite a few gasser applications. I am no expert on turbo seals, but I think you are making an issue where there really isn't one. Do a search on line for subarus and oil in the intake and you will see that they can handle oil in the intake. Most turbo cars have oil in the intake, some more than others. And don't forget the closed crank case ventilation dumping oil in there, which is what causes most of the oil on our trucks and on subarus.

Why are you guys so negative?
