It's a reasonable question. He's not asking how he can switch off his turbo, he's asking how much power the 2.5 liter engine would produce if it weren't turbo'd.

I remember the exact same question being asked back in the WRX forum years ago

I liked the boost fluid and side mount IC thing. Watch that poor soul actually put 93 Octane in his IC Sprayer.

Switching off the turbo WILL NOT reduce power as long as you keep your boost fluid level at the OEM level. Oil mods help, but again, keep your oil mods at the OEM recommendation and you won't lose much power. The STi's side mount intercooler is coupled with the rally style roof scoop, so make sure that you fill your IC spray bottle with 93 or higher octane.
