Default 2000 2.5RS wrx swap/ej257/ turning into track car

Gonna make a thread here documenting what i do to the car.
rs25.com is very dead these days, this place seems more alive still.

ONTO THE STORY:
bought it 8 years ago after having to sell my 08 wrx.
it came with sti seats, i overpaid, bought it from a kid who withheld info about it, yadda yadda yadda

couple years later replaced all struts/springs with kyb struts and h&r springs.

in 2017 i graduated college and got a good job and decided i wanted to swap it with a turbo since i missed having a turbo.

2018 i found a wrecked wrx about 2 hours away.
picked up engine and harness and that started the headache!
