You might want to look into putting the WRX turbo setup on
your engine.

I good place to look where this has been done before:

http://www.uniquemotorsports.com

If you go this route, my username in AFI. You might be able to find a few things of use. I have that setup and have been running 7-8psi daily for over 20k miles. Compression still perfect on all 4. Still up there with EVOs and STis and even a 2006 Corvette last week. And ditto Chad's site. I got about 90% of the information I needed from there.

http://www.streetlevelperformance.co...bo%20Kits.html. Of course I'd probably use a computer to modify the boost to 10-12.

make your own, i did and got away with it for only $1,000. I was running 8 psi for around 4,000 miles with no problems on a 2.5rs. I fabricated everything, it is quite simple.

Best bet:

www.rallitek.com for AVO Kit or www.forcedairtech.com for the FAT kits.

You get what you pay for.

That's too bad. Can I just use the fat stage one kit and not use an intercooler?

I have an intercooler that should work for that kit for sale for $350. I would recommend against a non-intercooled setup.

I was thinking maybe I'd start non intercooled and change over in the future. By the way, this would be for a 2.2.

Not if you want it to last long.

Maybe run daily at five and crank it up when I see what it can do in the quarter.

Without several thousand dollars more in mods you wont be "cranking" anything up.

Why couldnt I bring the boost up? Just a matter of drivetrain strength? I am not going to do the swap. By the time you're done, you may have a better outcome but it will cost you twice as much. I don't have an engine hoist and I do not want to deal with all the wiring.
