Default Fun (different) mods for a GC8 STi.

Hi guys.
I'm just curious about fun mod ideas regarding a EJ powered GC8, other then the usual engine upgrades. It could be small things, or whatever.
My car is basically a stock Type RA v6 with a built engine and uprated turbo (EJ207 2.1 bore, VF34, forged internals, closed deck, 300whp).

Everything from catch tanks to head porting ideas is welcome.
Just need some inspiration. I'm very happy with the current performance, it's just fun to optimize small things between seasons.

Watanabe drift centre. Then you can drift it, remove it when you want and revert to AWD without having to even go near your front axles.

Bonus drifty points for a rear LSD

Thats pretty cool. However, I don't know if they have a model for a DCCD 5-pot gearbox?

I actually already have big brembos ready for setup.
However, I'm split between e85 and maybe meth. E85 seems to be a PITA on road trips etc. E85 would also require injectors and new fuel lines.

ive wanted to do meth injection before but my tuner turned me away from it, basically said no one was doing it much anymore and e85 was a better and safer option. I guess another easy upgrade would be getting a brake booster brace to get better pedal feel. I know mine is spongy af. I drive a wrx swapped 99 forester and the brakes are the next thing I need to upgrade
