    It can be done but would cost over $15,000. If you love the car get to work. If not see what you could sell it for. The main reason I upgraded from 2004 Wrx to 2013 Wrx was the 04 was an automatic. Drove me nuts after a while.
    Since the new WRX's are also 2.0's, do you think it would be the same case to raise the power on these cars?

    You're talking about doubling the factory horsepower. It's the case for all small displacement motors. 400whp is about 500hp to the crank with the large 25% loss these drivetrains have. That being said, the FA20 looks to be a more stout platform than the outgoing EJ25x. However, don't make the cardinal mistake of assuming the motor is invincible. There will be issues here and there.

    ^ I hear ya and very true, which is why I went from a modded Veloster Turbo to a WRX... 1.6T had a lot of potential (215WHP/245WTQ after upgrades) but after that it would be really pushing the limits whereas with the WRX there's more rooms to play with.

    What's the deal then? You paid $6500 for your WRX, that's what you can afford.. but then you want to spend another $15,000 on it.. how exactly can you afford that, but not be able to afford a STi that would get you to your number goal with less total money spent? At this point, you're not making any sense.
