It's cool for a build but what you propose is just not intelligent. Not to mention that old wrx with like a 5 minute laptop tweak could pack on another 40HP with no supporting bolt ons..

None I agree I would never mod a NEW under warranty car period hardware or esp software wise. I would never put cams in a N/A DD Subaru I would never have a loud exhaust period. My UEL setup is muffled by a 40" glass pack and two Thrush Power Flow chambered silenced mufflers. This is an attempt to emulate a stock LGT with a SPT ver 2 exhaust. I am as far away from loud and obnoxious as one can be but I have a nice rumble.

Thanks for all the replys. As I was weeding through them, I noticed several references to suspension upgrades over performance upgrades. Are we talking swapping STI suspension parts in, or are there good aftermarket accessories for this?

This is getting into Brakes, Steering, and Suspension jurisdiction, but you can go for a mixture of STI parts and aftermarket. For example, stock STI springs and Tokico D-Spec adjustable dampers.
