There's actually a technical thread on Nasioc that is for N/As with bolt on forced induction. There's a lot of people there who have done this and still have reliable cars. Obviously, it can be done.
And no, the ECU will not be able to handle the boost. It will need at tune to run. It honestly needs a tune for everything, even the exhaust (butt dyno says a loss in low rpm power). That's why it's holding me back. If my tuning options don't change in a year or two I'm going to have to assume that they won't change, then a swap will by my only option.
Whatever, I guess I'm just going to have to wait and see. Until then, I'm going low-n-slow
P.S. I got stuck on my first speed bump last night
forgot to mention this, but there is mod support, it's just not N/A specific. Subarus are like Legos for big boys. You can use Legacy parts for the engine and WRX parts for the body and interior. They're all pretty much the same. My suspension and exhaust are both for a WRX.
