Default 2011 WRX 150k Service?

Hello, I just recently purchased a 2011 WRX Hatchback at 140k miles.

I was wondering what service was recommended once the car hits 150k miles?
I just replaced the oil, coolant, and power steering fluids.

I was reading that it is about time for the head gasket to be replaced, if so what all should I replace since they are taking the heads off? I am trying to add more longevity to the life of this motor while I save up to buy a forged one.

I don’t think there is a set mileage for head gasket replacement. More like if there starting to leak then you fix them. No reason to mess with something that’s not an issue or bad. Unless of course you like spending money. Asking that question and then stating your saving for a forged motor has me asking questions? Forged internals? What are your future plans with this?

I just recently picked up this car so I'm just trying to service/replace whatever I need to to add some longevity to the motor, I plan on taking the motor out and dropping in a SS2 built motor by Topspeed motorsports, I just want this current motor to last until I save up for the new one.

This.

Do you know the timing belt/water pump/etc. was done already? If not I would.

Transmission gear-oil
Rear differential gear-oil
Brake-fluid
Clutch-fluid (same as brake-fluid)
Valve-cover gaskets (if weeping)
Spark-plugs
Air-filter
Fuel-filter (in-tank)
Timing-belt (if not replaced) and related accessories (idler and tensioner pulleys)
Water-pump and thermostat (service when timing-belt is serviced)

Don't assume any of the above has been serviced and there is no such thing as "lifetime" fluids or oils.

Service intervals are either months or miles, not one over the other.
