WRX Internals Upgrade

Alright I've finally completed my turbo and intercooler upgrade with everything required to make sure it runs properly. But I have had the car back since July and of course you always want more power. I was considering upgrading my internals (pistons, rods) so that I can turn up the boost, but aren't real sure on what is the best choice for a Subaru. I mean I haven't heard of that many people beefing up the internals of a Subaru but I know it can be done. if anyone knows or has theirs done please tell me and let me know whats good for the WRX. Thanks

What turbo and IC are you running? A lot, probably most, people get a new block instead of upgrading internals on a stock block. Cobb and Axis make good blocks. Also it is good to get a new block, 2.2 or 2.5 because it will help spin your big turbo a little faster.

I am running an APS SR30 turbo with an APS front mount intercooler. Thanks for the advice. I am going to look into a shortblock.
