Question 300awhp goal

Hey all, I've chewed through a bunch of stickys and posts by others, and here is what I think I need to make about 300awhp, I'd appreciate some feedback.

Goals - about 300awhp, keep the TMIC, - I want it to look and sound stock (until you open the hood of course).

Car - 2006 WRX wagon, 5MT 57k miles

Planned Upgrades:
Turbo - VF39/43/48 (all basically the same)
TMIC - either 06/07 STi w/splitter or TurboXS TMIC and keep wrx splitter (better option from what I read)
DP - COBB catted
TBE - stock (unless there is something that is as quiet as stock, please inform me)
EBCS - grimmspeed 3-port
Fuel pump - stock (I've read they are good for this power level)
Injectors - stock (I've read they are good for this level)

Am I missing anything? other suggestions?

This car is my DD, so I don't want it to be loud, I don't want the power to be too peaky hence the turbo's I've listed. 300awhp is my goal, if I'm 275 thats fine, I don't absolutely have to hit 300, I need reliability more than I need 25 peak hp.

As far as the stock clutch - will it handle the power for a while with moderate driving? I know thats a pretty hard question to answer, I guess I'm looking for the experiance of other 06/07 owneres that have gone this route. I know about the transmission issues, but with the way I drive, I'm not particularly worried aobut that, again, it's my DD.

I should mention that I'm 29 so the right pedal spends more time away from the floor than near it. I actually get what I consider to be "good" fuel economy at 25.5mpg, and that was with tires that were at 27psif/25psir which I have since adjusted.

I also have some suspension modifications planned as well, but this isn't the place for them.

I appreciate any help I can get here, sorry about the word fort I tend to e-ramble.
