Turbo upgrade

Hey guys. I've got a coworker that has an Evo 9 turbo he'd gift to me if I actually installed it on my 06 Aero. Question being, is that a viable upgrade? My cars completely stock and I wouldn't do it until I got at least an AP and exhaust. Can the stock TMIC handle that, if not would an STi IC suffice? What else would I need to do to keep it as reliable as possible? I'm a fairly docile driver but I do love me some boost  driving

Re: Turbo upgrade

You're going to need fuel injectors and fuel pump.  AP won't do much unless you get a custom tune.

Re: Turbo upgrade

I would have it custom tuned after doing it for sure. I kinda figured fuel delivery might be an issue. I'd probably want an EBCS, yeah?
