Default My 2003 WRX drift on a budget build

So let me start off by saying I've been an avid simulator drifter for the past 10 years, I used to drift a miata with a welded diff on the windy Mountain back roads of upstate NY and most recently in october of 2014 I got lucky enough to go to Ebisu Circuit and attend Team Orange drift school with Naoto Suenaga and Stuart Stirling for my instructors, "awesome people btw" and ever since I got home I've been trying to figure out what car I wanted to build.
Well my questions have been answered, I stumbled across a 2003 wrx with a blown up motor for 1400$
Looking for 300-350hp
So now the build begins so far I know I have to
-redrill my front knuckles to increase my steering angle
-locate a fwd steering rack for even more angle
-tub out my front fenders
-get sti f lca's and coilovers and a camber/caster gauge to shim my lca's forward thus increasing my caster to 6 - 7degrees target
-install a r200 rear diff,350z axles and s14 hubs milled down to press into sti rear hubs and all the fab work that goes with that
-decide on power train, do I get a jdm ej205 for 1200$ and all the go fast goodies to get it to 300-350hp and weld the center diff and do a 1/1 stepper gear, or do an sr20det swap that way I have the reliability factor I'm not sure how reliable an ej205 will be once I'm putting that much power through it.
The fabrication and wiring doesn't scare me, I literally live in my workshop, I'm more looking for reliability at a bargain even if it means a little more fab work on my end.
Any input is much appreciated

Sounds like one hell of a build but you have done your research so I wish to you the best and cant wait to see the finished product! I have been dipping into drifting a little myself its quite fun once you go sideways on purpose
