2.5RS turbo kits?
I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can find a turbo kit for a 1999 2.5RS, I figured if there's anyone to ask its the people on this forum.
Thanks for any replies

ok, here we go:
First off check out this thread and read the coresponding threads.
Check me out first
and here is a list of some premade turbo kits for the EJ25 series cars. They will fit both the legacy and impreza line. This includes the 2.5rs, Forester, Legacy GT, OBS, baja and L. Some of these cars will need modifications to make the kits work. For example the Baja, L and forester don't come with hood scoops which you will need for the intercooler. This was just an example though.
So heres the list:
http://www.forcedairtech.com They have 4 stages of kits. They have everything from big single turbo kits to twin turbo kits. I hear there is a 5th stage in the works but it isn't out yet or mabye it was just a rumor.
http://www.ludespeed.com/impreza.html Then we have Ludespeed. They have been around for a long time and I have seen there kits in person. Nice kits, decient tech support and pretty much a bolt on and go type kit. They also have Mutiple stage kits. Stage 1 is not intercooled so you won't need a hoodscoop on that kit but the other 2 have more goodies along with an intercooler and full engine management.
http://www.rallitek.com/pparts.asp?VEHID=2 heres the AVO turbo kit. I don't know much about this kit but there is a huge thread here about the kit.
http://www.pdmturbos.com/\Index4.html this is the PDM kit. I belive Larry Ganz was running this on his car till he bought an STi. Its a well known kit. Again, I don't know much about it but it is a well known kit on the board.
These are just 4 of the kits. I am more then likely forgetting a few but those are just some to chew on. One kit I didn't put on the list was the vishnu kit. But from what I recall that was a one time deal and those kits are rarely on the market.
i'd also note two more things.
#1, there are a good amount of people on this board with custom one offs using legacy turbo parts, wrx turbo parts or total custom kits. This is also a way to go, but it takes a good amount of know-how and wrench time. From the few I have talked to, while they learned a lot they said it would be better buying a kit, along with quicker.
#2, You will also find a kit every now and then on the forsale market. Mainly because people get sick of the aftermarket power and want something with more factory relibility and because they get power hungry and there are limits to AFI with these cars.
I hope this helps.
