Smile Keeping my engine running well

My 2011 wrx has a little over 100k on it and because of all the stories out there I am just so paranoid one day it's going to blow up. I bought the car with about 75k on it. Since then I've added a killer b oil pan, pickup, and, and baffle, and also got the car protuned (with a careless downpipe too). The motor is 100% stock. I know the previous owner at least had a different exhaust they made him take off but I dont know if he did anything else or if it was tuned. Trans needs to be replaced / built and I can afford a 6spd swap but part of me is worried with my luck as soon as I get that fixed my engine will blow because if that happened I'd be in a really tough position.
*I'm going to buy an AOS when my trans gets fixed*
I have also been thinking an intake might be a good idea but I'm not sure if that really helps the engine run better or not and then I'd have to get my car tuned again.
I get my oil changed every 3k

I'm not sure if this is relevant but my car never throws codes. Never had a CEL in the 2years I've owned it. I hear people make jokes about their subarus and CELs lol so I've been happy about that (knock on wood)

I'm not really a car guy and neither is anyone in my family so I dont know much about cars to begin with other than what I've read online and my mechanics Ive talked to so sorry if this question sounds really dumbed down.

I will also add I am pretty decent at driving stick. I always rev match and never bog the engine down at low RPM. I do accslerate hard though and often times shift high, and I have no commute so I take mostly short trips, but I try to get out for a 10-20 mile drive every now and then for fun.

I'm really just looking for thoughts, tips, or things I should look for on my accessport while driving so I can be more aware and help my engine stay alive as long as possible.

You don't need anything else other than keeping your right foot in check
