Welcome.

So you need a COBB "pro-tuner". Call COBB, they will locate one close to you. IF there is one.

Good luck.

That's bad juju with these cars. tune always comes before modifications of that nature....

Hopefully he found what he was looking for.
At least he upgraded the braking and suspension, correct me if I'm wrong but don't upgraded fuel rails usually go hand & hand with upgraded fuel pump.

Cobb Accessport Stage 2.
JDM ej205 swap.

The fuel rails can handle way more flow than stock. There's no reason to touch them unless you're doing really drastic stuff. Yes, the stock fuel pump is way way more limiting than the stock fuel rails. I remember hearing about subaru being a little cheaper with the fuel rails in the 08+ but at least for the 02-07, they're overkill by a wide margin.

I lived in the twin cities for a while. There is a great tuner there but that's more than a haul from Bismark. Still, if you want to drive it 450 miles east down 94, they'd be right off the road. Don't know if there's anything more local though...

He'd have to tow it 450 miles. With the mods he has listed he shouldn't even be turning the car on.
