If you must rebuild,Forged pistons and all new bearings. A thorough cleaning and measuring and that should be all you need for your goals
Yea I kinda thought the same for while but i feel like if i wait till something breaks it could cost me extra than doing it early and id have less of a chance of being stranded somewhere when there is failure. I will do the compression test tho I haven't yet cuz the car runs great. I just don't really know how long a moded sti is gonna last. I was really surprised it has lasted this long. Knock on wood lol
