Default Turbo in 08 4door impreza?

Hey all, I know that impreza engines and wrx engines aren't too far off, was just wondering if anyone knew of any turbos that were compatible with the impreza engine, and the amount of work that would be required to install it (new parts, etc?).

Default 05 turboed

Hey I used to post threads like this all the tie and got only negitive feedback. But i decided to ignore it and turbo charge my car. So what i did was buy a kit for a 03 2.5rs and i modded it to fit my car. I HAVE HAD my kit onmy car for 25000 mile and havent had a single problem. I am running 8psi and am makeing 245hp and 260tq to the ground so just grab a turbo kit and go to town
