Starting from scratch...
 
Ok, so when I bought my 2007 WRX, the engine in it had 88k. Well, the engine blew a few days later, insert BS Georgia laws that didn't protect me, and now I am stuck with fixing it. We are going to install a brand new engine. The new short block EJ255 has been ordered, as well as all the other stuff. IE: gaskets, other smaller necessary stuff... I found a TD05 16G turbo for a great price new, but my question would be if there is anything else I need to do along with this: Blow off valve, up pipe, CAI, etc....I definitely planned on getting it tuned afterwards, or would that be necessary seeing as how it is a brand new engine? I'm sure the engine will be strong enough to handle it, but would do I need to add along with it without causing major damage? I'm not a run and gun driver. I'm just an everyday commute to work kind of guy.

Why not break the engine in with the td04 and then start the modding process afterwards. The 16g needs a tune and on a fresh block, that is a no-no.

That definitely makes sense. I don't plan on gunning the engine very much until I reach at least 1,000 miles, and I figured it wouldnt hurt to go ahead and put a little bigger turbo on it. I'm not much of a tuner, so that is why I came here for more experienced opinions....

Break in the new motor with no mods. Then with the 16g you'll need fuel pump, injectors, tune and possibly a larger tmic to take advantage of the turbo. No need for a CAI or BOV. Whoever is doing your tuning will have a base map for you to run until you get it tuned. It will basically just be a map that runs wastegate pressure and pig rich.

I take it the car is stock now?

It will be. It is getting the original EJ255, but I found the TD05 16G at almost the same price as the stock 4, so I figured if it wouldn't hurt it, I would go ahead use it. So if I dont put the TD05 on, yes, it will be completely stock and brand spanking new.

Please post a link to where you got this turbo. I have some bad suspicions.
