I am admittedly very under knowledged when it comes to forced induction, where could I find an oem take off for this turbo, if I do eventually take this route, I just want to make sure I do it right.

For a 2.5 you could use a TD04 off a Subaru or similar. Check Ebay or FB Marketplace. Lots of take off units cheap.

What about the neon srt turbo? How much from that setup could we adapt to a 2.5?

I'm sure there is a way to get it on there, but the SRT uses a turbo integrated into the exhaust manifold design. They are more expensive, and you would have to adapt the 2.5 manifold head flange to the 2.4. Then there is the issue of the turbo facing backwards towards the firewall. I think a better choice would be a more modular turbo that bolts to a manifold.
