Switch back to top mount?

I have a 2002 wrx. I bought it modded, it has an up pipe, down pipe, fmic, under-drive pulleys short-ram intake, vf23 turbo and some sort of piggyback ecu as far as I can tell. I recently had the turbo go out on me ( it began smoking intermittently and I later discovered a good amount of oil in the inter-cooler. I am going to have the turbo rebuilt and am thinking about switching to a sti top mount inter-cooler. I have been looking at the kits on ebay, I am concerned about how it would run with my current engine management though? It began throwing a p2044 code (something to do with the wastegate cycle?) also when it started smoking and missing a little bit, at high boost (i was reading about a fuel cut out?) What would most likely cause this? Any input on my cars situation would be great! It has been a great car for the last year or so since I've had it... I want to get it going strong again! Oh... how much horsepower do you guys think this would be making? i know this car will leave my 97 z28 in the dust! Thanks!

If you want to go back to a TMIC, go with something bigger. As far as power goes, depends on alot of things to include the dyno your car will be on.
