heh,
Custom setup via wrx parts = economy but in the long run more costly then if you did it right the first time (if you get boost hungry, downshift just a little to quick or simply hit fuel cut for some reason)

Prefab kit: stage the intercooled stage is the way to go, no matter what kit you get. Turbo size and HP levels will very from mild to insanly high. But don't expect much without a big investment.

swap: lots will say it, its more effective unless you want to build a powerhouse ej25 with new internals.

if you're too much of a n00b to read some simple webpages and read, you're too much of a n00b to heavily modify your car. You need to tons of learning and research, and it doesn't do itself.

I dont really agree that a kit is "the right way to do it." If ya want to have that attitude, there is no right way of turbocharging an NA car, cuz it was never meant for a turbo. It is all modification, however you look at it.

Piecing a setup together, if done intellegently, is the best way to do it because you get every piece you want. You will make more power per dollar than with a kit.

You may not necessarily make as much power w/ a WRX Turbo, as you would w/ a Cobb turbo kit, but you will save alot of money.

Engine swaps are great, but you run into lots of emission and wiring problems.

Lotus is also right. Read FAQ's first always, or dont bother asking another question. No one is willing to go over the basics for the 943205498370th time.
