Advice for VF43 setup

A few weeks ago I bought a used VF43 off of nasioc with less then 1000 miles on it. I can't wait to get it in my WRX but needed a few questions answered first. It seems that to get the most out of this turbo I need a new fuel pump so I was planning on buying the Walbro HP one. I also need a bigger TMIC, I was considering either the CSS TMIC or looking for a used STI one, I was hoping someone could guide me in which direction to go with this. Also, the restrictor pill, if I'm getting my car protuned do I need to swap or drill it or can I leave the stock one, and if I do need a new one is there a way to buy one that is drilled out to the right size, I feel something like that would be hard to make exact myself.

You are right about needinga new TMIC or even FMIC (not needed for that tubro though). Do you plan on sticking with the turbo for awhile, what about money? If you can find the STI IC for cheap, just pick it up and you will be fine with that. I dont know about your restrictor pill question, but I do have the part numbers and such for each year:
2007 STi WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.0335”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~9psi
2004-2006 STi WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.043”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~10psi
2005-2006 LGT WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.049”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~10psi
2004-2005 FXT WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.047”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~7psi
2004-2005 WRX WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.047”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~6psi
2002-2003 WRX WGDC Tables
Stock restrictor pill size = ~.047”
Factory wastegate pre-tensioned to ~10psi

I am planning on staying with this turbo for a while, or at least for a few years until I can save up for a tranny upgrade, so I'm really just looking for an intercooler that will work well with that setup. Has anyone here used a CSS TMIC, or at least looked at one in person?
