Default Engine upgrade for an European STI

Hello guys! First please excuse my bad english I am from Romania, Europe and I own a 2004 STI ( EJ20, 2l 265 hp ), and I have been watching this site for some time and it has helped me a lot, it is great! My question is that I want an upgrade my engine and I have been thinking of a 2.2 L stroker kit from Jun with Cosworth forged pistons and an Agency Power Garrett GT35R turbo kit. What do you guys think is it a good choice? I was also looking at the CP GT35R kit and the only difference is that the CP kit dumps de exhaust gas from the wastegate to the downpipe not in the air like the AP kit and that could result in some fire problems. Also I was wondering if the Cosworth forged pistons would hold the great power of the GT35R. How are Cosworth pistons rated around there because here we use only Mahle, Woessner- Kolben and Cosworth. Also if any user of an GT35R kit is reading this how is the car handling I mean did you lost your dailly drive option? Thank you very much guys!
