Question 05 ST 2.3 NON I/C Turbo-Crazy I know

Hey folks! just as the title says, i am inquiring about turbo charging my 05 ST....WITHOUT an intercooler. Now before you all ask what mental institution I reside in for wanting to go this route, let me first clear the air in saying that I am NOT looking for street racer, or even a crazy sleeper. I am just a simple believer that turbos belong on many vehicles that come stock as N/A motors. I just want the performance of what many stock DD turbo cars run. I mean there is no denying the difference in forced induction power, over N/A power. I just want that stock turbo DD car feel. This car will NEVER see a track, or even cut a light through town. Just looking for a more lively, sportier driving experience that I know a few psi of boost would bring me.

I have used the search bar and couldn't find a thread on this. If y'all know one, feel free to drop me a link. Any and all input is welcome.

Oh yeah and my car is a 05 ST 2.3 5 spd, with 120,000mi. Well taken care of, good clutch, no issues, and not abused. Thanks folks!

EDIT: I should probably let y'all know the second main reason behind this question. I can get a hold of a TO4E with oil lines, fittings, BOV and all that mess for somewhere between $200-$300 from a friend of mine. He bought it and never did anything with it before getting rid of his focus. So now he is giving me the first pick at it before it goes on ebay for more.
