Question What's necessary to TC an 2.5RS?

I'm sure it's been covered a million times.

What needs to be swapped out? Pistions? I think so, aren't the stock ones basically crap? What about the transmission? Can it handle boost? Would it be cheaper/ easier just to get an EJ20? I'm contemplating this, but if it's too much of a hassle. nevermind!

as long as u run low boost you should be fine with just the turbo pipeing and so on and a fuel line pump so on. probly good for like 5 and under.

You need oil lines, modified oil pan, an Intercooler is always a good idea, wastegate, BOV. some form of fuel enrichment, a bigger than stock exhaust, etc...
