Default Which way to go next?

I have a 2012 WRX hatch and am ready to spend a little more cash on my car (around $1k)and was looking for opinions on which way to go. DW currently has a deal for fuel pump + 850cc injectors for $560 which I would install and get a new custom tune, or I was going to pick up a process west tmic and install it without a new tune. Currently I have a turboxs catless dp, grimmspeed ebcs, and protune running 18psi making 276whp/286wtq on mustang dyno. I read about the wrx tmic crappy out under higher psi so was considering the pw to be on the safe side. This is my DD and my goal is to get the most out of it on the street and track (1/4 mile).

I personally would go the fueling route. While it is true the TMIC end tanks are known to crap out at 19 psi or greater, there is a bulletproof mod you can do to the endtanks to reinforce them. I will find the link for you. In the end, you will benefit more from better fueling than you will from an upgraded IC. Get that the next time around.

EDIT: Thank God for the LegacyGT forum. Mad props to them since NASIOC deleted or hid the forums regarding the bulletproof endtank mod. Here is a link to get you in the right direction. Despite it's smaller size, the OEM WRX intercooler is quite efficient when the tanks are reinforced. Hope this helps.
