I asked about making 400hp in my 2018 WRX and everyone was telling me it's going to be a pain in the ass and not safe at all. So I figured I'd try to upgrade cars before spending money on this car.
The stock turbo is really good. You just need the parts to run an ethanol blend:

Go into the FA section

The highest stock turbo ethanol 2015+ WRX I have seen was 427WHP on E66

If I were you I would stay on the FA platform and throw some parts + ethanol at the car if you want have a good time on the street - It will be much faster than even a lightly modified STi.

And you really don't need the STi 6mt and the Brembos if you are staying on the street.
