Biting off more than I can handle? Modded 2004 sti

New to these cars and I've been looking for a better daily driver for my 50 mile round trip commute. Is this car overkill and unreliable? Not good for a year round car???? I really don't want to make a mistake! Would need to make a 200 mile trip home too.

Fully built forged motor.
Manly rods
Manly pistons
ARP head studs
Percision 5757 turbo
Equal length headers
Tuned with Cobb Access Port
Injector dynamics 1000cc injectors
300 LPH fuel pump
Ohlins FPS suspension
Whiteline swaybars
Front mount intercooler
3 Bar map sensor (blow though type)
Tial blow off valve
Grimspeed air oil seperator
Aeromotive Fuel pressure regulator
The car is on a very conservative tune, the motor is built to hold around 600whp but we de-tuned it a little. It is currently making 410whp on 18 lbs of boost.

As a DD, would not touch.

As a weekend car to compliment a DD, sure as long as you know that this can get expensive.

The mod list is incomplete.

No way a DD, unless you have endless funds and love throwing 60 a day in the tank. With those mods, your foot may tend to get heavy
