Subaru Stars Aps

I beg your pardon, but I am new to this web post. Does anyone have any feedback or opinion on APS stuff? I have 05 sti, and my plan is to reach over 600hp at some point. After doing much reading I have reached a conclusion that APS makes best aftermarket tunning upgrades for sti. I am planning to start with their turbo back system with hi-flow cat (one with 4' tip), uppipe, blow off valve and headers. I am also planning to purchase aps front mount intercooler and DR65 ball bearing turbo. I want above mentioned to complement (at later time) cobbs pro series stage two short block. Let me read your feed back.
thank you all

1.) youre not going to do 600hp with all APS parts (Esp with that turbo)
2.) the sti up-pipe is catless. the APS header comes with an up-pipe already.
3.) I dont know of many 400hp STI's with cats...
4.) Don't put off that short block upgrade. I don't think a 600hp sti would be very fun if you could never floor it without fear of popping a pistion
5.) Fuel system plans? you will need dual fuel pumps and 1000cc injectors
6.) EM? Only a Cobb AP is capable of making 600hp.

Most certainly, I will be purchasing APS or maybe a perrin fuel rail system along with new higher flow injectors and a fuel pump. I am still driving my car to work and wanted to do pre-set up with headers, air intake, turbo back, blow off and an engine mngmt system (ecuteck or turboEX's), so I can still get decent gas milage. Short block is the ultimate goal, (I have to convince my spouse that I would need that). If you state that DR65 tubo would not work, which in your opinion would ( has to be very good quality and reliable)?

Looks like you need to do a lot more reading. A "600hp" daily driver is not as easy at it sounds.
