Some have swapped the TD04 from the wrx onto that motor, with good results, and some with a few toasted motors.....

You might try the usmb, i'm sure that info is over there.

That's what I've been reading. I also read that if u put a mbc and stock tmic off a wrx and open the exhaust up a little I can boost to 10 psi with not too much worry but do I need to upgrade the fuel system or add a fifth injector.

Those guys don't like lots of boost, or heat. Do whatever but be wary the heads on those will more than likely crack when subjected to excessive heat.
