Subaru Impreza BIIGGG help Please

I need some big help with a Subaru Impreza. Is it possible to turn a regular Subaru Impreza 2.5i Sedan into a WRX? Is it possible to give a Subaru Impreza 2.5i Sedan a turbo engine and an intercooler (and whole system)?

Anything is possible. It just depends on how much you're willing to spend.

Not being an expert on such a conversion, I can't tell you how much it would cost.

what year is the car?

short-yes its possible we have a shop close to me that does WRX swaps all day. they did an 07 STi swap into a unicorn (older subbie). they are primarily subaru related.

long- It can be done, but give me the year of the car and such so I can do a bit of digging for you..also whats your location? if ur close to here i will give u the shop number and u can talk to them. the shop is very good...ive seen a timelapse video of their work..they did a whole WRX swap in 6 hours...THATS skill
