OP do not listen to posts of the above variety YOU WILL NEVER GET CLOSE TO WRX numbers with cams headers and a tune you might get 150 at the wheels and that is an exaggeration. The sounds is your choice EL or UEL it really doesnt matter you cant take more air out of an engine that the intake valves allow in on the exhaust stroke.

The only big power N/A wise you might make is from a EZ30R or a EZ36R now those two platforms have real potential. Anyway trade your 2.5i for a WRX or a Legacy GT or a STi or an older RS and swap it.

But in the mean time get suspension parts
I'm talking 08 wrx and under, probably should have clarified that. I also said near, as in 200-210 crank. It is so easy to get 40 whp from cams, headers, and a tune.

40whp may be a stretch, but definitely 30. Either way, I'd still do headers.
