Question 2010 subaru Wrx turbo upgrade help

Hi guys , so its my second Wrx and now i am planning on upgrading my turbo and components , on my previous 2006 wrx i had the cobb accessport stage 2 and didnt really like it because i "didnt really feel the difference" so now on my 2010 i am thinking about, i chip the car or i upgrade the turbo. Can you please guys tell me what do i need to upgrade my turbo for minim modification. i am not looking to go 400hp+ , just a decent gain.

i know i would need injectors, fuel pump and a bigger turbo...i am thinking about maybe a STI one.

If there is a thread explaining all this ... pleasee let me know

If the Canadian cars are the same as the US ones, then you already have an STI turbo and injectors. So you're set!

You need a upgraded tmic ,intake ,dp, catback optional.
Access port or tactrix
And a good tuner .contact Eric mine torqued performance .

Also go on 3gwrx which has way more 3G info and cars with the same mods in mind and info .

Also to keep the car safe on the stock block no more then a stage 2 or protune with the stock turbo ,the fuel pump and injectors should be swapped and one step colder plugs to be safe .

Anyway enjoy your car and the Cobb tunes are on the lower Hp level of all the off the shelf tunes.

Thank you for all the info , the thing is that on my 2006 wrx i had a fmic,dp,catback,intake and cobb tune , with all that i simply couldnt feel the difference, i had a nasty turbo lag so i put a STI tmic, no more lag but still... At the end i sold the car and bought this one , now its i change the turbo , injector,fuel pump,ect or i simply go with a tune , i wish i was in the states because here there no tuners like you guys think ... I already have a intake and a full exhaust and yah... So i want to do the right decision and have around 2-3gs to spend... For you guys to decide
