Is your car dead? I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for - you should already have engine management installed (aka the ECU).

Autronic makes a stand alone ecu for your car. I assume there are stock ecu tuning options though that would be cheaper and easier but I don't know what they would be in JDM land.

Always can use a Apexi SAFC2, as tons of people have used them.

The problem is that some of the subaru ECU's learn around the Apexi and some of the other devices that intercept the oxygen sensor signal and alter the AFR that way.

You can try to see if your ECU is covered by romraider, that's a really popular option with USDM wrx's and sti's, best of all is that the software is free, just need the tactrix cable to hook up a laptop.
