Bought the car November 2014 with 10k miles. Plasma Blue Pearl. Chose over 2015 WRX for aftermarket parts availability, known engine strengths/weaknesses, and wasn't sold on the 2015 styling, though it is growing on me.

With my next patch of mods, how much power do y'all think I will make? Also keep in mind I have to dyno with two people in the car so I can blow into my breathalyzer when necessary.


Also is there anything else that I should do while installing my next bit of mods on June 6? Or do these mods seem to be everything I need to put me over 300awhp on the stock turbo, and set me up for a modest turbo upgrade, at which point I will upgrade breaks and potentially think about STI tranny/driveline swap or building the stock tranny.
