My First AWD Turbo

I recently sold my 1993 ford mustang. I have always liked WRXs and i recently purchased my first one. My old stang have 400hp at the crank. Im looking to get appx 300whp out of my 2003 WRX 2.0L. Any1 have any insight on how to get there. My current plans are wheels/tires, BOV, and exhaust.

Start with a Bellmouth DP, and then look into engine management (Either Cobb AP, or the Tatrix Cable and software). That all can be had for cheap if you dont mind looking around for used stuff. To get to 300whp, can be done by using all used STI parts (TMIC, turbo, also look into a 3 port boost control solenoid, maybe an inake), and a decent tune.

First of all, don't waste your money on an AccessPort or anything like that. Go opensource with your tunes. I can get a road tune for $200, so you would basically waste 2-3 tunes trying to get an AP.

300whp... turbo back exhaust, bigger TMIC, fuel pump, injectors off a 06+ WRX(565cc), and a VF turbo(off an STi)

You can do all that for $2000 and definitely see close to 300whp.
