Your transmission (assuming it is in good shape) should hold fime with IC/TBE/Stage 2. If anything, the STi IC may give you a little boost becuase of the cooler/dense air. Future mods (if you are looking for significant gain) should be in the direction of fuel and perhaps an upgraded turbo. You can do little things like an intake/crank pulley/inlet hose but none will be noticeable gains. And as always, a pro-tune.

as long as you don't wot shift like a moron, your tranny will be fine. As for an STI IC with stage 2, it can't hurt....i disagree with gaining boost...more volume=loss of boost. (if any change at all)
