Do the swap. Turbo'd 2.5rs's are worthless and a time bomb. You can't make enough power on the NA 2.5 via a turbo to make it worth it.

as someone who just finished a wrx swap on a 2005 2.5rs. It is time consuming, mine took me 3 months because I was missing parts and had issues with wiring. But hey I finished it myself and get to keep the low insurance

but I also still have issues to work out
