Well, I know that power is tempting, but it would be nice to but that power to the ground well, my next suggestion would be coilover ( or springs), f/r sways, and tires. Assuming all of the above are still stock.

Handling would be a good thing to think about. If you start to add too much power you wont be driving your car like you want without an upgraded transmission.

In response to the Crank Pulley Question, That's one of the first mods I did on my WRX. I noticed a pretty decent difference. The car seemed to be easier to drive. For example I could go much slower in second gear without bogging down too much. It did have a noticeable gain in acceleration as well. I would go for that if you've got an extra $100....

WRXKidid775 is more helpful than not
He has an SPT intake already. He is already stage 2....

tires, sways, endlinks, bigger tmic, IC hoses, equal length headers.

your gonna be pretty much maxed out on your stock turbo.

Driving school? Those are always fun and super beneficial.

Rocket boosters FTW!!!

You have "Go" taken care of a little, and I would say take care of "Stop" a little. Suspension as well.

Bet it feels like a different machine with the work you have so far. I would go with cams next, and a good engine management system. I am sure that will provide really good gains all around.

Well underdrive pulleys do work. and hasnt caused me any problems.
Big TMIC wont hurt , but will probably not help alot.
Meth injection will alow you to run more boost on pump gas.
equal length header will allow more power overall.
Custom/Pro tune it !!!!
