What next?

I have read through the FAQ but it seems more targeted to the 2.0 then 2.5. My question is what is the next step for me.

Current:

K&N Panel
Cobb Access Port With Remote Tune
3” Catless Downpipe
SPT Cat Back exhaust
Exedy Racing - Lightweight Flywheel (Part #: FF502)
Exedy OEM - Replacement Clutch Kit (Part #: FJK1001)
Prosport EVO A/F with Bosch 4.9 o2
Prosport HALO Boost Gauge

My goal is 350WHP

What is the next step? Or the next few steps?

Thank you everyone for the help!

Im sorry i meant engine wise. I have already ordered springs and have been taking with a local shop for wheels. I have no intention of cornering fast i plan to drag race only.

easiest way is to get a bigger turbo, intercooler, metal BPV, injectors, fuel pump, 3-port boost controller, cold air intake, and a tune.

nvm

What would be the best turbo for my money. I was thinking 20G but what one to buy is hard to decide. Everywhere is read one person says this and one says that. I would like to get something that will bolt right on with no modifications and can use the stock tmic until i get another one.

If your staying with the stock TMIC. You might as well wait until you can afford a better TMIC or a FMIC. Because I've heard the 3rd gen WRXs have plastic ends on the stock TMICs and they don't like to be pushed real hard. Meaning they crack and leak when you turn the boost up to much on a stock turbo; let alone a upgraded turbo.

3-port to control boost properly, fuel pump, and a metal BPV again because its plastic and will leak even on a stock turbo above 18psi.

order of importance when tuning
3-port
intercooler
metal BPV

then all at once
turbo
injectors
fuel pump

and if your looking into the 20g look at Blouch's 20g with the billet wheel called the 20gxt

o ya, and since your removing the stock turbo you will 95% chance rip the stock inlet. its cheap rubber and from the factory they tighten it down so hard with a worm clamp it eats and rips into the end. you'll need to grab and aftermarket inlet because of it.

thats not totally true. Blouch's 380xt, 440xt, and 480xt can be bolted on with no other modifications to anything. the stock injectors will work, fuel pump, same hoses and lines etc etc. the only "thing" that would need done is a tune. but its pointless because you will have to run very low boost like on the 480xt to not max the injectors or pump.

Synolimit: Justin is a extremist. Its all gains or nothing for him. He wouldn't dumb down a turbo till he got upgradeable parts to run it right.

rwatkinsii: I'd follow the advise of what the others have said. Synolimit included some things I forgot about myself. But, no one has really led you in the wrong direction yet.

Thanks for all the input everyone! This leaves me with lots more questions!! I think im gonna go with FMIC and 3 port next. I just traded my turbo xs 50/50 for a full recirc so that solves the plastic issue.
