05 ZX4 ST with modern rs turbo?

Hey yall, i have an 05 ZX4 ST, and was wanting to turbo it. I was considering putting on an aftermarket turbo for a bit, bit then I realized I have the same size engine (2.3L L4) as the RS. I was wondering if anyone put the modern turbos on the first gen Focus, and if they did how was the response. I was going for a medium to smaller turbo as this is my daily driver and i just want to get going fast. Any opinions and thought would be helpful. Thank You!

Edit: this isn't going to be for awhile, first is a LONG list, i am just spit balling. First is handling, then engine rebuild, and so on

The RS has the Turbo Manifold made into the head , you have to have a Turbo Manifold so the RS wouldnt work

Look into the focus sport turbo kit
