Default stock 04/05 WRX turbo kit into 05 RS

Alright, I have been hearing rumors about this and it's making me think:

Supposedly people on here have taken the turbo/tubing/intercooler off of a stock WRX and installed it onto their RS's. I can't find these people so I am just going through the grape vine. Anyways, the rumor is that installing this wrx turbo kit onto the RS and adding a piggyback/stand-alone ECU to accompany the setup will allow for a safe performance upgrade for the RS so long as you keep the PSI around 7 or below.

Any thoughts?

Edit: since the 06/07 WRX has the 2.5 block instead of the older 2.0 block would it be even better to go with the new stock turbo kit instead?

WTF? YES! I am
better than you!



Look....read...learn...then realize it'll be way cheaper and more reliable if you sell the RS and get a WRX or do a swap.

And there is no such thing as a "WRX Turbo Kit".
