Default Can I put stock WRX turbo setup on 98 Forester?

I cant get a good answer when I search on turboing the 2.5L so here is exactly what I would like to do:

Buy all stock WRX turbo parts; turbo, TMIC, exhaust, and all stock plumbing to run on my 98 2.5 forester. I want to know will all this stuff bolt up? And what would I need to do to get this to work? Im assuming I need to tune the ECU to retard timing, and run lower boost levels (6-8psi?) since I have a higher CR.

And if this is a feasable idea, what are the little details i would need to work out? Can I run my stock 2.5 NA ecu? Can I run stock 2.5 injectors/fuel pump? How do i run an oil feed/drain line to/from the turbo/engine block?

Ive tried searching the last couple days and I haven't found any clear answers. Also, no one has seemed to ask about this particular setup. Please help. Ive already got the wrx suspension, now I want to know if i can turbo it (CHEAPLY and RELIABLY).

thanks

scott

Have you tried searching the Aftermarket forced induction forum?? Your engine is the same as the 98 RS. There are many people running this setup.

BTW, crossposting is bad mmmkay.
