i never do any customizing on cars, but i always heard that japanese cars are easy and lots to play with, esp with civic. i am now think to buy the subaru 2.5i sedan, does it has a lot of customizing things like civic or other does?

I don't think they are any easier than a Mopar, or a small block Chevy, or even a Ford 5.0. Those engines have huge aftermarkets.
But there is a small and dedicated aftermarket for Subaru, though it mostly focuses on the WRX.
You can find intakes, exhausts, pulleys, cams, clutches, and that type of thing for the 2.5l, but if you want a lot of performance just start with a WRX TR.

I couldnt find much for the 2.5i only thing i foung was an intake. I mean you can always do some mods to the exhaust or what ever but what if you cant? Do you know of any exhaust that dont require those modifications.

then if just considering 2.5i, which both legacy and impreza has, which one should i consider? does impreza has something that overcome the legacy?
and wouldn't that kinda pointless to put a turbo on a SOHC engine? thanks

The Impreza is lighter, but the Legacy has more room in the engine bay.
I wouldn't put a turbo on a brand new engine still under warranty. You'd probably have to change a lot of internals to produce a lot of boost (pistons with a lower compression ratio, for starters).
I'd start with a WRX TR, it's easier to modify and already has the beefy internals.
