Default Towing capacity?

Does anybody know the safe amount of weight a 2011 Wrx Impreza hatch can pull without trailer brakes? Iím pushing 17 psi with a catless downpipe and catbacks and an intake.

first off, any trailer WITH trailer brakes is WAY to much for a wrx even empty let alone loaded.
1000 pounds should be fine in that car, I wouldn't push much further than that

I pulled a 55 gallon drum of methanol in a 4 cylinder honda accord before
obviously not 1000 pounds but drum and trailer probably 750
That car handled it no problem power and braking wise

much over 1000 your trans would probably suffer and an auto would really suffer
