Post Subaru XT turbo, RS compatible?

figured it was a shot in the dark, but i thought i'd ask. i went to the dealer the other day and there was one in the "to be thrown away" pile. the guy said i can snag it from him for a couple hundred bucks. didn't really take a good look, but it looks like it's in the same place as our would be if we bought an aftermarket for the RS. anyone have any suggestions?

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Yep- let him keep it. The XT was a 1.8 liter, and the RS is a 2.5- the turbo will be woefully undersized.

It will add some power, but in general its better to use a Legacy Turbo Turbocharger.

I forgot to mention, its in reality too small for the XT, much less the 2.5RS. Of course the worthless exuast, intake, and low boost of the stock XT masks that fact. It is nice seeing poisitve boost at 1,800 rpm though.
