Question Where do I go from here?

Hey all I have an 06 wrx. This car is my daily driver so i can't afford unreliable power or getting into a project that could potentially have the car down for a few days. But I am lookin to get some more power.....Heres what i have so far
Invidia DP
Magnaflow Catback
K & N Drop in filter
Silicone Hoses
STI TMIC
VF39 Turbo
Cobb AP tuned to the VF39 map
Short Throw Shifter and stiffer shift bushings
NX-Ntercooler Sprayer
TEIN coilovers with EDFC
Front Strut Bar
Front and Rear sways and endlinks
and bigger wheels and rubbers

I was planning on getting a protune in may but i was told that an intake and then a protune would probably produce more hp. So now i'm leaning towards that but not sure whether to go with a short ram or a BIG MAF intake. Does anyone have any other suggestions for what i should do before the protune? I heard the 06 injectors are pretty decent so i'm trying to avoid changing them. But any help would be greatly appreciated

Ewg, meth, header, TGV's, and maybe an intake + turbo inlet. Other than that your options are sort of limited w/o breaking the trany. The engine should be able to handle that power if the tune is good.

More Power = More problems...

Of course, i don't mean at all times more power will equal more problems... but more that there is a greater chance of problems associated with more power.

If you can't afford to fix problems associated with more power... in case murphy's law does strike... Then I'd recommend keeping everything the way it is.

A GOOD tune... a REPUTABLE tuner... etc could be a good idea. a Half-assed tune is a bad idea...

Replying to the statement about murphy's law.....its not that i can't afford to fix things so please don't shy away from ideas due to price. I'm just saying somethin such as a blown tranny or internals......cost wise no prob i can fix them i just cant afford to have the car down for stuff like this that would have to be taken to a shop if ya know what i mean.........

and although i say money is not a problem buyin an STI is not an option either lolol

also just out of curiousity.......whats an EWG????

Thanks all

ewg = external wastegate it helps control boost better.. your vf39 has a internal wategate to regulate boost pressure it keeps the door on the wastegate closed until the desired boost pressure is reached and then opens the door when it hits it... alot of people have boost creep issues so they either port out the stock wastegate or go to an ewg set up..

You can go up to an 18g or 20g... and get protuned... Then have some solid usable power that way...

i looked into the 20gs origionally but someone told be i would basiclly have to have the car towed to the shop to be protuned cause there was no set map from cobb and that was to drastic to run the car without a tune.........is that true cause the closest GOOD pro tuner to me is about 2 hours away

An EWG is in the up pipe, so you replace the stock up pipe with that of one that has a flange on it for an external wastegate. Doing this would require you to remove your turbo, and then up pipe, and replace it with the new one, then the waste gate and dump tube, and then place your turbo back on.
