TURBOCHARGER

2009 Subaru Hatchback

Engine Mechanical problem
2009 Subaru Hatchback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive 6200 miles

I have a 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X, the base model. There was no option to purchase the 2.5X with a turbocharger. Seems like I recall there being some reason the 2.5X could not accept one. My question is can the 2.5X model have a Subaru turbocharger installed? If not, are there any specific after market products that would boost the HP from the standard 175 HP up to between 225 - 255 HP which is somewhere in the range that the available turbocharged models get?
