    My 2012 WRX build, asking for review and advice

    first let me apologize if i am posting in the wrong area, i am new at this. second please don't be rude and yell at me for not using search and looking up reviews. i cant/ don't get much time to use the internet because i am currently deployed to Afghanistan and alway have a job to do or away from base. i am new to Subaru and forced induction and am simply asking for tips, advice and reviews on my build plan for when i get back stateside.
    i picked up my WRX early 2012 after my first deployment here and drove her off the lot with 32 miles on her. in the 8 months i had the car i added a Cobb access port and a Cobb SF intake (with box) and later a Invidia Q300 catback.

    2012 Base WRX with 14xxx miles
    COBB access port
    COBB SF intake w/ box
    Invidia Q300 catback
    plus odd and ends interior and exterior stuff

    Build plan:
    COBB downpipe
    Perrin turbo inlet pipe
    Process West top mount intercooler
    Grimmspeed EBCS
    Kart boy short throw shifter
    fuel pump? undecided
    up pipe? undecided

    front & rear White line sway bars with kart boy end links
    Cusco front strut tower bar type OS

    I would just ask your tuner if they really want you to do the uppipe and fuel pump, and how much of a difference they are going to make. For that build I don't believe they'll be needed or do much, but I'd see what the tuner says.

    Yeah that is just a little more than Stage 2 and I don't think the UP and fuel pump are required. However, it can't hurt to go ahead and do them because any power mods above what you have listed will require them.

    Also, thank you for your service
