Default Advice on 2017 wrx sti

Hello everyone, this is my first time buying the sti. This is my mod so far please have a look and give me any input. By the way, all the mod are installed by me. If anyone have any question regarding the installation please ask and I'll do my best to help. Lastly, I'm getting a protune this Wednesday at The Shop CT by mike botti. I'm hoping that I make the right decision on this tuner, unless anyone of you prefers someone else. Thanks in advance!

I mean, did you already purchase all the parts? Lots of these parts could be considered debatable I guess. I'm sure if you worked with your tuner to come up with the list then it should work out pretty well.

My only advice would be to ditch the FPR setup and just go with an Aero FPR/Rails/lines to clobber the stumble once and for good. I read too many threads about varied success with the stumble. For the marginal difference in price between the two, just go all the way. Maybe some ID1000's to leave room for ethanol in the future?

Nice mod list. Maybe upgrade the injectors to 1000cc. I don't really see the point of 725's. Mike Botti is a great tuner. You will be happy with his work!

Advice, I agree. You realize you will loose your drive train warranty on a brand new car and flirt with a failure. I don't agree with perfect at all. What I would recommend depends on the owner, but for people with experience an STI can use a lot more power, and probably other improvements. This will require money.

Agree with ID100i0 injectors

Use a DP without a neck-down it won't matter now, but your already dong this to a brand new car . . . how long before you bump the turbo?

Thanks for the input I have already installed all the parts listed. The reason why I go with the 725cc is because I was going to use Cobb OTS map instead. Maybe in the future I'll go with bigger turbo but for now and maybe 5 years or so the car will be like this. Base on my mod that I'm choosing is just for increase power and torque a little I have no intention to race or track. I was wondering how much power and torque I would get out of this mod compare to stock? And I'm wondering how much the car worth for now maybe I sell it then get myself a Porsche 911 it just a thought. Lastly, if anyone of you have a good source of learning how to tune please post it because I'm really interested in tuning. I'll post my result and picture after tuning this Wednesday. Thanks again for all your help.

Oh about the warranty it's important but Subaru always find something to reject it anyways so if you love the car and have passion for it just do it. As I see a lot of people saying "you pay to play" lol.

Probably worth a little over KBB since the mods are fairly new. It's only worth more than the market value in stock form to a small demographic of buyers who were going to buy and mod the car the way you have it.

Would be a shame to sell the car after you just modified it.

Thanks again for the honest opinion. I wouldn't sell it as of right now, maybe 2019 because I heard 2020 there will be new sti with different engine let wait and see what Subaru going to do. Any idea how much hp and tq gain base on this mod? Thanks

It's essentially Stage 2+ Low 3s.
If someone tells you more - even with a paper to prove it, be doubtful or worried . . .
