And no - no one makes a "kit" for it. If you want it you'll need a lot of parts, and more than a lot of knowledge to make it reliable.
Sounds like one too many shade-tree types have been at work on that car. I wouldn't trust it to get me to work (let alone get me there any faster than it already rolls) with a cobbled together mash of parts like that. Run, don't just walk, away from that mess.

Just putting on EJ25 heads will not lower it enough to enjoy the full benefits of forced induction. You need to change the pistons if you want to be able to boost 20+ psi.
You have to change the entire engine cross-member to one that can accomidate the turbo exhaust, change the radiator to a turbo style (doesn't fit without mods), and add the upper water tank, hoses, etc. Drill the oil-return to the passenger side head for the turbo, blah, blah, etc.
It's not a small amount of work and it's not something you want to "start" with if you aren't already familair with EJ turbo's.

Forced Induction on a non-Forced Induction is not an easy task. Takes lots and lots of research, and knowledge.
Until then, Have fun. I think some pics of this car are in order.

Your biggest problem is going to be engine management and fuel delivery. You need a piggyback or standalone ECU to properly run an older subaru turbo engine. You also need a bigger fuel pump and injectors. If you just stick a turbo on there, the 30 plus degrees of timing it runs, with the stock injectors and fuel pump, you'll kill the engine almost instantly.
To all the doubters, I have a 93 EJ22 shortblock, all stock in my 02 wrx and it runs great with 22 psi of boost everyday. But it's correctly tuned, you can't do that with any pre-'02 cars. So, you need some sort of aftermarket engine management, plus injectors and fuel pump.

Then you would have the correct turbo platform to upgrade on, to replace existing turbo conponents, with WRX parts and what not.

Go over to forums.nasioc.com/forums and go to the "N/A motors with bolt on FI" forum and take a look around. There's plenty of support there.
