Default Would this Drivetrain Setup be sufficient?

TYPE STI CLOSE RATIO GEAR SET
http://www.rallispec.com/gea_syn_rst1141.html

This car is my daily driver atleast for the next 4 years

I have looked around and decided that with the exception of exhaust components i dont want to really start modifying my car until i get the drivetrain done. I have an 05 wrx wagon, my ultimate power goal is around 300 WHP.

My question is, would this gearset be good enough for my plans for the car or am i risking failure with 300 WHP. Thanks you threads in this forum i know to stay with a stock clutch with a stock Tranny, but if i switch to this gearset, can i upgrade the flywheel and clutch without risking the Tranny?

As far as other drive train components go, Im also thinking of going with

An Sti 5MT short shifter assembly
a 4.44 front and rear final drive set
as well as new Front, Center, and Rear LSD. (or would this be overkill for what i want to do)

And finally a new transfer gear 1:1

Thank You

4.44 would suck for daily driving. 6 speeds are so easily had now I would go that way. Handle all the power you want and you can sell your working 5mt for decent money. I traded my 6mt with driveshaft, flywheel clutchmaster fx400 and linkage for $2k plus a 5mt when I sold my car.

Ya true, Im just worried about getting a used 6mt and it turns out to be one from an STI that a 16 year old had

They are strong. The 2004s had some synchro issues. I'd look for an 06 or 07 if you want longer ratios.
