Default Accessport and mods

First off my goal has been to beat a stock STi with my (now stock) WRX. I have kinda decided against getting a new turbo set up and fuel system. And I dont want to get professionally tuned or anything so i want to get an accessport. I plan on UP, DP, catback, accessport and was wondering what else(besides a new turbo set up) I can do to be faster than an STi, that will safely work with the accessport.
Thanks.

Some have even added a larger TMIC and K&N Typhoon intake with good results. Just remember that monitoring your car's vital stats is important when you start to add mods that are outside the realm of AP stage 2. With all that stuff you should be dead on or slightly passing a stock STI from a roll.

Or you go just go the ricer route and figure out a way to get rid of 500 lbs.

I have seen as much as 230WHP on a AP stage 2. with some work (and some good driving)you should be able to run with an STI.

Buy an STi? Remember, 1 mod on any STi will toast you.

I am thinking along the lines of; ic hoses, pulley, UP, DP, Catback, accessport and maby P&P stock turbo. I am looking for quick spool and quick acceleration, and I hear header make that worse, but help out on top end- is the header worth that?
I would love an STi, but I dont have $12-20,000 more to invest (plus the money already invested in mine) into a car the get an STi. Or i could just load the car with stickers, cause then I will have enough hp to blow away an STi, haha.
