Default Holset Hx35 setup on 08 wrx

Would like to do this build with the hx35 i took out of my 01 cummins... Kinda noob to building a wrx and wondering what i'm getting myself into.

Guessing I need:
walbror 255
ID 1000cc injectors
rotated mount dp and uppipe (can you just buy an adapter for uppipe?)
Tial 38 or 44mm ewg
fmic

What do you guys prefer?? price range too? or is it a dumb idea? Thanks!

Dumb idea. sell the turbo and buy one that is specific to your goals and budget

I would like to get 375hp without pushing it too hard? It would be a lot cheaper i think tho since i already have that hx35? I have also heard the 08's have some problems with internals?

Not sure if this helps - lots of fabrication included

I think 375hp is a pretty reasonable number without having to worry too much about pistons and stuff right? I just heard the 2008 wrx's have had engine problems and i dont wanna worry about that.

It's all about how you drive it. If you drive like a douche all over the place something is gonna break. If you are smart about shifting and when to get on it you should be just fine.

And as usual, it's all about the tune. Pay the necessary price to get it tuned right.

If you don't want to worry about it then stay stock. or stage 2 with a good tune.

375 hp where. to the wheels? at the crank? on what dyno? in what altitude? dyno numbers are a gimmick, how the car drives, feels, and performs is what matters.
