Question 2002 wrx build recommendations

I know this doesn't belong here but this is my best guess.

I have a 2002 wrx and these are my mods:
VF39 turbo @ 15psi
k and N cold air intake
apexi catback N1
megan racing downpipe
new up pipe
manual boost controller
"pink" 565cc sti fuel injectors
Pro tune
What im definitely getting:
sway bars
new tires/rims

Now for engine modifications I want to see what I could do, if anything to get some more power. I recently got the car and the owner before had a new tranny and clutch put in. Unfortunately he put the "glass" 02 tranny in. I have heard they can't handle much over 300hp and on the dyno I have about 300 apparently. I dont have proof this is just want the previous owner has told me. So what is a good step to take? Is there anything else worth the money to do? Maybe a new tmic? maybe a FMIC? probably not because the VF39 is pretty small. Perhaps new pulleys? Or perhaps a turbo upgrade running at lower boost? Or a turbo that will get more turbo range with a more steady pull. I am really at a loss right now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
