40whp may be a stretch, but definitely 30. Either way, I'd still do headers.
bro.. you are still out of your mind. first of all, once you start playing with the cams.. the daily smooth drivability is compromised depending upon how aggressive the grind is. It would be absolutely stupid to buy a new 2010 and do such aggressive modifications to a daily driver.
secondly, there is a 54 HP difference between a stock 2.5i and 08 wrx and the weight difference is only 70 pounds.. a highly modified N/A RS coupe maybe in auto X.. but sedans and wagons vs sedans and wagons.. why even bother..
