2006 Wrx Sti

Default Newbie Here, to site and Subaru

Just bought my first Subaru. 2006 wrx sti silver. Has some Cobb stuff, cold air and heat shield with a high flow cat and some ridiculously loud exhaust( turbo back it seems). Dude had receipts for some internals, forged pistons, rings, some valves (he burnt one on a drive home about 50k ago) rod and main bearings. Think this is pretty much it.
I am thinking of doing Motul Gear 300 75-90 in front diff, tranny, and rear diff, oil change to Royal Purple 5w-30, needs an axle and some new coil overs( thinking bc racing $1000-1400 minutes range). I would like it to be daily car. I want a firm grip but something that absorbs bumps. Going to have wife and baby in it from time to time and I know most coilovers are ridiculously hard. Wonít be tracking it but want something adjustable and rebuild able for that ď buy once, cry onceĒ lifestyle I live. Lol.
I appreciate you reading this far and will also appreciate all your inputs. Not new to cars but itís been a while since I wrenched. In Newport Rhode Island area. Waiting on plates to come in the mail so any input now will be used to start ordering stuff so I can get car ride ready.
Oh yeah over flow coolant reservoir is damn near dry, drive it home and didnít heat up or anything but found this weird. Thinking just any old 50/50 will work, unless you all say otherwise.
Thanks again.
