Default mods, where to start?

i've been here on i-club as a guest mostly reading about the WRX but now i'm on the road to getting one and i wanted to know what are the real go fast mods. i'm a honda person so i'm not really sure where to begin. i've read different posts some mods are the same and others are different but i want a minimum of 350whp @18psi when i'm done w/o N2O so where do i start?

thanks 4 the link, i tried the search and got more threads than i would like to think about however i think its in the right forum since this is the proven power bragging one and i want some real answers from those who have the power under the hood or at least can back up what they post with more than book figures.

since i want the right parts for the best results w/o destroying my car or going thru the trial and error process like i did with my auto accord. after doing tons of home work and research i got about 200whp out of my N/A auto 4cyc sedan w/o doing any swaps; all tuning and bolt ons

Hey dude, just trying to help out. You'd get more responses from people in FFI (factory forced induction).

aight, well i'll guess i'll move over there and see what i get
just one last thing (even though there is a forum for it as well) best turbo and engine management. i've noticed every1 has their own preference but which so far (since more is coming out) is the best route for the result i want without using N2O and breaking my pockets since i pretty much got a line on all other other mods
exhaust system, intake/IC, guages, boost controllers/timers, CAM gears, etc....

OT: I would love to see a dyno sheet on this. Was it an H22A? If so, how are you able to run the Automatic Transmission? It just seems too hard to believe, since a B18C5 motor with High Compression pistons 12.1:1 and up, Toda Spec C's, Toda Valvetrain, Hytech Header, and 2.5" Exhaust could barely break the 200whp mark. Not trying to flame, but with bolt-ons and tuning...that's just to hard to believe. BTW, I don't consider Nitrous Oxide as a bolt-on upgrade.

PS. I'm a Honda guy turned scooby-nut.

350 whp? man that will come with transmission snapping torque.

Good Luck

can do it with a big turbo, intercooler and engine managment, injectors and fuel pump

or

add a stroker kit and it will be way more driveable day-to-day since that will reduce lag.

Not really! He could move his torque band to the statosphere and add nitrous but then he would have to 'Flintstone start' his car from a roll. Or perhaps hit nitrous off the line.....from a dead stop.....every stop.
