i wouldn't worry so much about performance being that the wrx is a fast as hell car stock. u can do some performance stuff, but don't forget about suspension and brakes - making the car stop is just as important. and i suggest going to a driving school. those really are helpful. i did skip barber dodge at laguna seca and i learned alot there. plus its fun (i got to drive a viper around the autox)

well, i'd suggest getting a the SBC-id EBC (electronics boost controller) bigger exhaust (HKS carbonfiber baby!!), uppipe, ram air intake (looks good, but if not for looks, the drop in k&n filter is good too) samco hoses , bigger turbo (the pe1818 does have it's merits) ,FMIC, ECU chip, headers, injectors(didn't look up this item too much yet) , bigger brakes, and drop it about an 1" or 1.5" with tein coilovers. don't forget to buy some lightweight rims with nitto or yokohama's. I'm sure i'm forgetting a few more things, but there ya go *pantpant*

correct me if im wrong, but lets add all this stuff up:

Blitz ebc : 600
HKS carbon fiber exhaust: 900
uppipe: 240
intake: 200
samco hoses: 140
pe1820turbo: 1700
FMIC: 1350
chip: 600
headers: 1400
sti injectors: 650
front brembo brake kit: 2200
tein coilovers: 1500
rims (i assume SSR 17's are ok): 350x4 = 1400
yokohama tires: 120x4 = 480

Dont forget the Gauges (Boost, EGT, Air/Fuel, Oil Temp) a KnockLink and a better fuel pump.

That should run another $1400 or so.
