Post Sources for turbo ready 2.5 block?

I would like to know who can prep a 2.5rs block for turbo application. I would like to run a turbo kit and 10-15lbs of boost. I know the stock internals may handle this level, but not for long I am guessing. I have heard a million opinions, any real world experience. Looking for some serious power out of an RS. Money and looks keeping me from the new WRX.

He can build the block to whatever spec you want.

Currently I drive a Cobb built turbo motor everyday, tuned for 10 psi currently. Never a problem.
Drove 900 miles the day I picked up the car with the new engine and another 900 the next day.
SO far this engine has over 10000 miles on it without any problems.
Trey Cobb is a very honorable gentleman who delivers on his promises.
