Rimmer Engineering (what they used to be called) makes a supercharger kit for the 2.5. Approximately 230 hp. One problem, they took off with people's money last time they were in business.

I'd personally prefer a supercharger because of the flat torque curve and the low to mid power. TriTuning might be unveiling a supercharger in the near future.
The Subaru has been proven reliable with a turbocharger, but these cars are only available outside of the U.S. , if you're in the market for an Impreza, then buy this little beastie http://www.bensrallypage.com/forsale/chan_subaru.html

By the way, this topic has been beaten to death, and if you search for it, you should be able to come up with many previous posts.
