The only turbo gc motors came in the jdm models, so you would need to import one complete w/ a wiring harness to make anything work. Also, turbo motors almost always have lower compression than N/A But yeah, the ej207 is an awesome motor, but the holy grail is the ej22g, and those are about as common as bottled unicorn farts
