If they recommend it it's not overkill. They are experts when it comes to knowing what it takes to make xx amount of hp on their dyno. Go with what they say.

-perrin inlet hose
-k&n cold air
-4" downpipe to full 3" hks hi-power. No cats no o2's. (i have the stock exhaust to go with car)
He claims to have made 235whp 240wtq on 17psi. I dont know what type of dyno he used but he is located in CT.
I live in FL where we dont have emissions and 93 oct fuel. I will be dyno'ing at a place called AWD Motorsports because they are one of the few places in my area with a 4WD Dyno Jet dyno.
I would like to get 350 horsepower on a daily driven car with reliability. I am traditionally a Honda guy and have been for more than 8 years but as my life has it I have a family now and in need of a 4 door car. I really enjoy the messaging that Subaru has with safety and reliability so thats why I choose to go this route.
So with all that being said... Any help, would help immensely.
Are you wanting 350whp or crank hp? 350chp would be pretty easy to do reliably. 350whp is going to take a lot of work to make it reliable.
Also, if you have a budget for the build, that would be helpful to know as well.
