For sure you can!! However, IMO there are only a couple of turbos that I would use. I'll use myself as the example. When I started to Mod my rex, I ran a IHI VF30 Turbo with a very agressive tune. so agressive in fact that I had to back the boost down in the high rpm's(ran 19PSI till about 6K then back it down to about 10.5PSI) so that I didnt lean the motor out! I basically maxed out injectors, fuel pump and clutch(mind you it was on its way out anyways). BUT before I upgraded the turbo, I already had a turbo-back(UP, DP mid and catback ... just recently added headers) as well as the intercooler Y-pipe.
So long story short, it was a nice setup for a short period of time. I personally wouldnt run it for too too long ... but it can be done! I would run a VF30,34 or 39 if I was goign that route. but at a minimum, I would have the full exhaust and y-pipe before up-ing the turbo! At least thats my opinion about it all!
oh PS -- not that I like to be the bearer of bad news, but you really dont need the intake till you're about 300hp-350hp at the crank! I have one as well but you really dont need it! jsut for future knowledge!
