Default 89 xt turbo on a 98 2.5L?

have a n/a sohc 2.5L impreza. a buddy of mine has a turbo off of an 89 xt
he said he would give it to me and i didnt know weather or not it would work on my car due to the fact it was off a 1.8 L engine.. would it restrict my air flow at high rpm's? would it be beneficial or not??? any input is very appreciated!

Any turbo will work if you have the right flanges and proper set-up.

Stop crossposting and watch the amount of question marks you use.

Yeah, it can work.

However, I feel a little strangled with a TD04 on my EJ22. I can only imagine how the 2.5 would feel on the even smaller 1.8 turbo. Though I suspect if you're only looking for 4-5psi it might be okay, would have to look at a compressor map however.

the smallest turbo you should even consider is off of a cummins diesel.
