I attacked the suspension in my 04 STi before adding significantly to the engine.

KW v3 variant coilovers
24 mm F/R swaybars
Anti-lift kit
Upgraded bushings
Stickier tires
Upgraded brake pads
Brake fluid

The car can corner faster and smoother than 99.9% of people would feel comfortable driving. Being able to increase the entry speed into a corner (increasing your exit speed) allowed me to be faster, much faster.

After all of that I started to increase the power output. Adding power only allowed me to slide through corners (if you wanted to), and pull harder out of corners, but usually ran out of room as the entry speeds got higher without making the car faster.
