What kind of boost levels are you planning run with the flow out of that GT30R (good turbo)..

with under 20psi or so you should be fine (depending on abuse)

Above 21psi I would suggest at least forged pistons.

An Axis Stage 2 is a nice block but I don't think you need to drop the cash..

Your heads would bolt to an Axis Stage 2 block..

I was planning on 400-450whp. I didnt know that i could run that much power on the stock block.

Ron at Axis will NOT try to sell you what you don't need.. Shoot him a call, he knows the differences between the New 2.5L wrx and the STI block better then I..
