Default JDM ej20 turbo swap for 2002 outback - master tech advice requested

I have a factory installed ej25 with 260k in my 2002 outback with auto trans AWD, the motor has run well, but has finally succumbed to the dreaded head gasket failure issue. I got a lil advice from a buddy n he recommended a JDM ej20 swap. Originally we looked at NA/non-turbo options but I recently found this


What are your recommendations? Stick with non-turbo ej20 also available? Or what additional concerns / issues would I have if i purchase this kit? I believe my rear diff to be a 4.44 ratio. Any idea what the ratio is on this kit?

I have read the good recommendations (on this site) about the JDM ej20, just looking for specific info and recommendations about this particular setup.

First what is your budget, and second are there any OBD2 tests done in your area for inspection, all of the 1kish swaps are going to be OBD1, which will insta-fail since they cant be read over OBD2
