Default Building the motor...but how far to take it

Well I ran into problems with the ringlands, and now that my motor is open I decided why not go all out. I really dont have a power goal in mind right now because I am still on stock tranny but I just want to get everything out of the way motorwise. I know I will want something north of 350. I already have stock bore Wiseco pistons, cometic hg, cosworth rod bearings, acl main bearings. Anything else that I should look at doing since the motor is open. I was thinking about doing cams but am still unsure. Car is mostly DD and some drag. I was autocross but there aren't many in the area.
Right now the car is pretty much stock. Its an 07 WRX with TXS Turboback and Cobb OTS stage 2. But hopefully 35r in the future.

Thanks,
Sam

You should certainly look into getting some cams and getting some porting done while your at it

Rods and a billet crank! You did say all out.... All out is replacing everything. Port and polish the heads as well and do oversize valves with new springs, retainers and a nice choice of cams. You are not going "all out" if you dont do these things!

You can get a billet crank for less than $2000. But point taken 2grand isnt exactly cheap.

Brian Crower makes a stroker kit with a billet crank. The whole set is somewhere around $3500, but includes rods, pistons, rings, and the crank. Not a bad way to pick up a billete crank.

After seeing the difference in build quality between my Kelford cams and the Brian Crower cams we were thinking of using in my car, I would buy someone else's kit.
