Default turbo or N/A?

Hi every one. I have a 2001 impreza 2.5RS. I definantly want more power. I was gonna go FAT stage 3. But a few people said that turbo's are too much trouble on a car that started out N/A. I don't want to spend more than $5,500-6,000 for speed. I figure $4000 for the kit and $500-750 for install and about $1000 for random things that I would need or want. I am looking for advice from RS-T owners. Have you guys had good/bad luck w/ turbo RS's, should I just stick with N/A? I would really appreciate some feed back. Thanks
Ryan

Default turbo or N/A?

I already have JIC FLT A2 coilovers and 18 inch rims and tires, so I have the handling taken care of. My car will always be my daily driver. I want 13 sec. quarter mile times. I also want to keep my car reliable. I will take it to the drag strip and mabye auto-X every once in a while.

Those 2 things are generally mutually exclusive of one another...

exclusive means not together. It's like saying "you can't have your cake and eat it too".
