Avo turbos is working on a turbo kit for that car but it's not in production yet. http://www.avoturboworld.com/content/view/220/31/ As far as I know no one else has a kit specifically designed for the 2.5i and not the wrx/sti. So if you want to do it you need to build it up yourself. Look around online for guide on how to build up the engine properly to withstand the added power.

it CAN be done, but it would have to be done carefully. You would have to tear the engine apart and upgrade it with performance grade parts, like forged pistons and rods. With the crank i think you would need a low compression crank due to the turbo, and some work done on the head. Like for example, a non-overlap cam (assuming its SOHC head). You would also need a new ECU. Not to mention all the you need for the intercooler and plumbing. The list goes on and on. hope it helped!! BTW why not just get a WRX or STI

Yeah i have been doing quite a bit of research on the topic and i think that im not going to do anything with it. The amount of $ that i would spend on all of the mods I might as well get an sti thanx for the input though.
