    The catback isn't necessary for your goals; neither are the headers. Imo, it would be better to spend the money on a quality tmic. Like someone else mentioned, spring for a good bpv. I popped my stock one at 301whp. Altitude is a big thing also, or it was for me. I am at over 6,000 ft above sea level. My car baselined at 201 whp...pro tuned to 301, 335tq. Like EJ257 said, it's all relative. I crushed my buddies 2010 SS camaro which is supposed to be rated at 425 hp.

    However, I would love an exhaust and headers because of the sound, but I ran out of money for the time being. I spent about $4200 on a safe and reliable 300whp, and am very happy with it (for now)

    Are you already purchasing all the other equipment and looking at buying a catback in addition? If that's the case, I would say a set of ID1000 injectors and a fuel pump would be far more useful for the money than the catback, and will be cheaper, to boot. If you can swing injectors/pump/catback, then consider it, but my advice would be to address fueling next if you're already buying the aforementioned parts...

    Skip the STRI gauge, Perrin Uppipe, and Beatrush mount. Instead pick up a Defi Racer series boost gauge and a WBO2 (AEM UEGO or Innovate LC-1/DB combo). I don't like STRI gauges, and a WBO2 would be far more useful than either an uppipe or a pitch stop mount. Any additional money should go towards fueling first, and catback second (if budget allows).

    With adequate fueling, proper TMIC/BPV, intake, ELH, and DP/TBE, 300whp would be a cake to make on most dynos, and would be a hell of a fun ride. As a personal note, I'd love to have that as a personal car; no EWG (unless necessary), with those parts (since I'd be DIY tuning without an AP, I could afford the full TBE).

    If you do get a pitch stop, look into torque solutions. Great product, low price. But it's definitely not necessary.

    Oil pump and oil pickup. Even on stock vehicles these tend to fail more than other things causing blown motors. This info came from a Subaru tech
    2013 WRX sedan - MODS = pretty much ever bolt on.

    You'll max out your fuel system with your current modifications. That would give you some headroom to really let the other modifications shine, whereas you won't be able to get the max out of it without upgrading.

    Pickup, maybe. Pump, no.
