Default 05 lgt with sti tmic and intake man

Hi so am trying to find out if I should move forward with this or not. I just got into a 05lgt, wanting to do some mods.
So, the car came with a sti tmic and a sti intake man, also a cheap ebay turbo. I like the idea of going to the sti stuff because not many people do it. and I was planing on doing injectors and a turbo upgrade anyway with a new avo tmic but not sure if its worth all the trouble or not.. any input would be great

What are your power goals and/or intended use for the car?

Not much we can say, especially without a goal in mind.

That being said, a LOT of people go to or "upgrade" to STI parts.

Start doing research, STI turbo mounts differently and isn't a bolt in item. There's a reason STI go fast parts aren't on 05 and newer Leg GTs.

this is an 07 legacy gt. with said manifold swap
its not as difficult as some make it out to be. but its pretty involved and if you dont know what your doing you can really mess it up.
