Still trying to figure out exactly what failed and how with my STi. Oh well, the joy of Subaru ownership
Haha yeah a lot of people start with those intentions; but that's the game. Modifying can be really fun, but also heart breaking. In the end, you modified the car and it went out. And the modifications were kind of serious. Not extreme, but... more than just some innocuous little bits. Pay to play.

I'd do the same if I had an RA. Mostly stock (maybe catback, suspension and wheels, etc), that's how they'll keep their value and appeal... unless you don't care about any of that, then go for the send.

By the way, here's some info/numbers on the RA/2019 stock block: https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2892143

Long term at such power levels? We shall see. But pretty sure they'll be fine at stock powers....
