It is a BIG job. Unless you have a lot of tools and are a good mechanic, take it to a garage. If you want to do it yourself get a manual from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM.

Does it have a distributor? I thought these cars ran on the harmonic balancing system

Its under the engine, on the drivers side. Two bollts, you cant miss it.

In general, many of the 1990 through 1993 parts are interchangeable on the Subaru Legacys. But your best source would be a 1991 Subaru Legacy, followed by a 1990 Subaru Legacy. Verify the bolt patters before purchasing from 1992 or 1993.

The 1990 Subaru Legacy front speakers measure three inches by four inches. The rear speakers measure five inches by 5.5 inches.

The starter is interchangable between all 1990-1994 Legacies and maybe even up to 1999.

Oxygen sensor on 1990 Subaru Legacy is under car, just behind engine where exhaust manifolds join but before catalytic converter. Wires run up right side of bellhousing and connect into wiring harness.

Remove the wiring harness from your 1990 Subaru alternator. Remove the alternator belt. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new alternator.

Get a Haynes Manual for about 10 to 20 bucks. This will walk you thru the process

You will need to get one custom made, otherwise you can use any legacy/wrx body kit with enough modifications. Newer Legacy and Impreza body kits will not fit.

I haven't seen one of this vintage, but assume it is essentially the same engine as newer ones. It's at the top side of the engine back near the firewall on the driver's side. The starter is relatively easy to find and replace.

you take the head off and take all the valves off

This is a lot of work, are you sure you want to go here? There is no easy way to do this, and there are several Subaru manual transmissions with different features, you are not being specific enough. The easiest: Find a AWD manual donor car, a 1990-1995 Legacy. From this car you will need: Transmission, clutch, flywheel, starter, rear end, driveshaft, front axles, shifter assembly, pedal box (interior), clutch cable/master (depending what the donor car has). Remove all of the above from your car and install all "new" stuff, hooking the neutral start switch wire from the automatic to the switch on the clutch pedal. At the end of the day it would probably be easier to put your Turbo motor in a standard shift car, or just replace a faulty automatic transmission with the same.

Subaru Sumeragi was created in 1990.

I believe the 1990 Subaru originally came with R12 refrigerant, which can not be purchased by do-it-yourself repair people. So assuming you are doing it yourself, you'll need to evacuate the AC system completely and replace it with R34, or take it to a shop that specializes in AC repair. Make sure to replace the filter/drier while you have the system taken appart. That's a cheap part ($15-$30) that can cause the compressor to turn on and off quickly if it gets plugged up.
