Anyone who wants 400whp in a street car probably hasn't felt what 300 feels like. 400 is a buttload of power. I am making 350 in my 14' WRX and it is wayyy more than enough

You say it's a mistake because of how much $$ u spent? Or is it because you feel that 540 is too much for a DD?

I'm in a situation where I have the opportunity to get a new short block and a potentially put together a build for 400-450hp.

Prior to that, spent about 3k on bolt-ons that brought me to about 340hp & 360tq. Car was a lot of fun for sure. But now I'm lead to believe that I have a cracked piston. So currently, I'm canvasing different options... Keep stock block and go forged internals? Or go new short block and more power...?

Did you find a huge difference between 300 and 350?

Default Don't do it without built short block

Just from my experience, you need to have the bottom end built if you want a reliable build. These cars just aren't made for high horsepower on a stock longblock. Beware.....
