I used to lust for more power, to the point that I was going to go American muscle from my 2016 WRX. Yes, high horsepower/tq makes a much faster from stop light to stop light car and maybe if you winding roads have lots straights, But I felt like I could not really get on the HP, it was just not safe feeling.

I feel like the stock HP in the WRX/STI is perfect for a street car, I can get on the throttle and still have fun. I feel like I can actually push the car. The magic is the manual transmission, steering, planted feel, and being able to rev out the engine without flying off the road or going to jail. To me this is what makes these cars fun on winding roads and think these already have ideal HP.

If you are going to go for more power, I'd start small (stage 1 or 2) and see if that addresses your need for more HP.
