    Just be mindful you're not running forged pistons like an STi... careful w/ all that boost! Would suck to spend all them Gs for a turbo and tranny and than have your engine go kablooey
    i thought STis didnt have forged pistons, at least 04-05 didnt

    I think I read on Nastysock that the STi has Hypereutectic pistons. Aluminum doped with ~12% silicon. I'm upgrading mine for sure. Had Subaru simply put forged pistons in the STi it would be much easier for me to live with the smaller turbo. But, such is life in Subaru land.

    The OP made the mistake of racing those cars from a ROLL...

    the stock turbo does not like to go off of a roll..

    and there is no way that you are going to have more of a chance of blowing your trans with a 20g than an 18g-- its all in how you drive your car, not what the dyno says. You can get a 20g tuned down make just as much power as the 18g would but have way more top end, which is what you want when racing the cars you mentioned.

    Tread with caution. The 5MT will blow at stage 2 levels, it's only a matter of time - could be 10k miles, could be 100k miles. I've read tons of threads of people doing this on this forum and many others. Yeah, there's a good chance they probably can't drive but there's 50 times as many '06+ WRXs blowing their 3rd gears opposed to the previous years. The 2.5L's stock torque numbers are already as high as 2.0L stage 2 levels. Torque breaks trannies.

    I'm trading up to an STI or Evo. I thought about PPGs but I could get so much more value for about the same price just by trading up. Even if you got PPGs, there's a spaghetti string of more and more weak links in the drivetrain.

    That's what I'm doing. Selling the bugeye and getting an 07 STi

    That's what I almost did 2 months ago. The '07 is a great year for the STI. The ECU has it's quirks but a stage 1 flash will solve that in a jiffy. The new VF43 and heads put down some nice stage 2 numbers. I'm gonna get a used '07 or a new Evo down the road after I pay off my bills.

    c'mon...enough with the bad trans cliches.. plenty of people run the stock trans at very high numbers. When you mod cars...THINGS BREAK...

    yeah upgrade to an STi or an Evo and you might not have to worry about the trans, but heavily modded STis shatter axles all the time. If its not one thing its the other.
