Lightbulb Mod list?

For whoever was wondering about the full mod list/power on the car with this kit... I found this on Garrett's site: (see for yourself here

Owner – Chris Greentree
Car - 2002 Subaru WRX
Where – Torrance, CA
Recreation & Daily Driver

The May GT Ride of the Month is a 2002 Subaru WRX belonging to Garrett engineer, Chris Greentree. This WRX sports a prototype of a upgrade turbo—based on the ball-bearing Garrett GT2871R, a stainless steel turbine housing manufactured by TiAl Sport (a Garrett GTPD) helps allow for a true bolt-on, direct-replacement installation. This prototype upgrade delivers an increase of more than 85 horsepower and 62 lb-ft. of torque over stock , a power increase of over 50 percent! Installation of the upgrade kit was performed in-house by Garrett engineers at the Garrett facility in Torrance. Chris’ WRX was chosen from among three Garrett employee vehicles to undergo the transformation from an already respectable performance car to a highly-tuned beast. Garrett’s direct bolt-on WRX upgrade will be offered to the public during Summer 2004! Be sure to register as a Garrett Gearhead to be the first to know when the kit is launched!
