Default anyone make a turbo kit for 2002 rs?

Just curious if any aftermarket companies are in the process of making a turbo kit for the 2002 2.5 Rs. Any help would be appreciated.

There's been disscussion on this before, a search will turn up some threads about it...

But basiclly, the new RS and the old share the same drivetrain, so anything that works on the old on, should work on the new one.

Hmm.. this is kind of a longshot.. But there is this company in Japan called Fuji heavy industries and they produced a kit for your car..

IT'S CALLED A WRX.

The price that you'll pay for a turbo kit and installation you could have just picked up a WRX.

Just an FYI, iON Performance is coming out w/ a turbo kit for the '02-up RS. You won't have to hack up your hood to use a TMIC.

OMG 2.5l is not a 2.0l like the wrx. Mabye this guy is dumb and doesn't know that or mabye he is like me and wants low end torque#@! and please please in the future use the search function. I know I am guilty of asking before doing my research but please in the future try that function. Great stuff comes up.
to answer your question. Shiv makes one that is turning heads lately. take a look. he has a gb going right now.

GTBGUY, i thought having fmic wasn't really recommended since the piping will be too long and causes lag?

btw, the wrx cf hood is pretty cheap. good "excuse" to get rid of our steel hoods

-S- - I said TMIC (top mount I/C) not FMIC. You also have to remember that the CF hoods don't include the scoop. That scoop isn't cheap.

So when did They start make'n a 2.5L Turbo'd WRX... ???... They didnt? Well theres your answer smart ass.

Some people like the low end torque that the 2.5L gives ya more than the lag'd WRX's low end.
