go for the fully closed deck shortblock b/c the shortblock can handle the boost and higher horsepower than the 2.2l stroker with the semi closed deck. even though the axis racing short block is prob more expensive but your car will be more reliable with the fully closed deck shortblock

Just get a JDM short block, will be cheaper than your options listed above and can make a reliable 400whp.

Are you changing heads too? Some blocks won't work with the stock WRX heads.
