Whats needed for an upgraded turbo?

Ive been looking around at different mods and I pretty much know what i wanna do (after i can recover from getting rapped with all these Christmas gifts i have to buy) but i was wonder what mods would be needed in order to upgrade to say a GT35R turbo? if I had a stage 2 WRX what would be needed to upgrade the turbo and get more HP? thanks guys

Well the computer needs to be in some way modded (an accessport may do it) and the injectors need to be upgraded so you dont lean your car out and blow it, and most turbo swaps require the use of a fmic, dont know about this turbo though.

For a turbo upgrade you need at least

565 injectors
High Flow Fuel pump
Bigger intercooler wouldn't hurt

to run a GT35R on an EJ20:

-3" or 4" intake system
-full rotated mount install kit (perrin makes a good one)
-800cc or so injectors
-FMIC
-Serious ECU control or stand alone EM
-new rods & pistons, or better yet a stroker kit to spool that massive turbo before 6000RPM
-new trans (KAZZ gear set or STI 6-speed) the ra-spec wont cut it.

then tune, tune, and tune!

So if i had a:

Helix Up pipe
Borla "Hush" exhaust
COBB Access Port

then flashed my car to stage 2 i would need:

565 Injectors and a new fuel pump to be ready for a turbo upgrade?
