    ummmmmm i'm sure that there is way to do that but you would have to know what you were doing. Too bad for you i'm one of the people who don't know how sorry.

    Not a 100% sure but there is a company called AVO that makes turbo packages for the older Subies, they might have one for you

    Try forced air tech. I believe they have kits for the GC8 and they also do custom work.

    from what i know it's a pain in a butt to swap WRX motor to a older Impreza. It fits in perfectly , no probem , but you need to have all the wiring harnesses swapped too and THAT's A BIG PROBLEM. There is thread here, when guy was doing it to his GC body and it took him like 6 months but he was doing it himself. I know it's been done, but it takes good Suby mechanics and a lot of money to do it.
    Turbo kits are available for stock non WRX engines but you can't run too much boos on them if you don't want to blow your engine. I think you have to stay below 10PSI. Anyway, do some research and deffinately visit NASIOC, there is much more info there about older cars.
    Good luck with whatever you'll do
