2008 legacy turbo?
 
i have a 08 legacy naturally aspirated 2.5i engine that i want to turbo. is there a kit out there that i can get to be able to just install the turbo without having to redo my internals?

First off, welcome to the forum.
Sell it and buy a GT. The wiring alone is enough to send you over the edge.

You my friend are in luck. You will most likely be ableto sell your 2008 2.5i and purchase a 05-06 LGT with much cash expenditure.

Its not just the turbo. Its the ecu, engine bay layout, brakes, etc, etc. There is a LOT more to a GT than just the turbo and HP.

That being said, several 2.5i owners seem to be very happy with their purchase even if its delta was somewhere near what it would have cost to just swap for a 2.5GT. Similar power to a bone stock 2.5GT just begging for mods.

Something to think about.

I agree I had the 2.5i & LGT. You are better of getting a LGT or the 3.0 R if you want some more power than the 2.5i. Plus with the money cost of the turbo kit and everything else to upgrade it, might want to get a LGT or 3.0 R.

... do NOT turbo your NA legacy. Sell it, and get a GT. - Sincerly an owner who has owned the AVO turbo kit.
