I also have a 2010 2.5 MZR and I've been looking into orangevirus turbo kit. I've seen people say the MZR has strong enough internals to boost right to 350 hp without changing them, but you should do your own research before taking such a big decision.

Boosting any engine that is designed only for natural aspiration can lead to instability and unreliability. So if you are currently using this car as a DD, you may want to consider buying another car to do such heavy work to.
