Lightbulb ATTN: 2.5 RS onwers

How many of you 2.5 RS owners have turbo's on your cars? I was wondering if you were to take the turbo from a WRX and put it on a RS, how much of a power increase would it be? I mean, would the .5 increase in displacement make it more powerful than a WRX? Thanks in advance

All right Im gonna be "that guy" and say do a search. This has been covered numerous times so if you click that great "search" button on the upper right corner of the screen I know youll find something. It can work but there are some modifcations that need to be done

oooh fun....

Point 1: A couple hundred
Point 2: Depends on the boost level
Point 3: Yes it does a lot for mainly Tq (hence why a 2.5 on 5psi can take a WRX running 15psi, but that's mostly due to compression ratios)
other than that, SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH!!
