What I can help with is tuning, so if you want to look at other options, let me know. I have at least one FlexFuel customer in this thread.

greed? at least subaru sells cars that you can buy voluntarily..

greed is the government confiscating your money and returning no value. there is no virtue in forced charity.

good call on the house.. do it!

Even though the OP is out, I would like to give my opinion maybe it could be useful for someone else reading this. Its important to mod a car in a manner where it last, lots of parts work great on a dyno day but what about years after that day? All engines need are the correct amount of fuel, oil, and air (there is a lot more but that is the basics) how well those parts maintain that balance will determine how long an engine will last.

For example:
-If you put a exhaust manifold on this car it will perform great but if you're not careful with choosing the right one, or putting it together the exhaust flanges could warp and cause the car to run rich which could wash out the cylinders.
-Certain silicon turbo inlets (especially perrin) work great for the first year or so but the metal inserts in the tube will become loose and cause vacuum leaks causing the car to run lean.
-Lots of aftermarket blow off valves can leak.
-External Waste Gates though provide great boost control have V-Band flanges that may leak metered exhaust causing the car to run rich.

All of those examples are common mods which can cause the candle to be burned at the other end of engine longevity.

A tuner many years ago told me a major key to engine longevity was making sure the Air Fuel Ratio remains at the desired amount for the life of the car. The challenge is making sure the parts you choose to put on your car will accommodate the AFR for the life of the motor. Including the sensors that monitor should have an ability to meter the air at its densest form or thinnest form.

Ive owned my 2005 sti for about 10 years and during those years its been.... stage 1 / 2 / an 18g / FP Green / FP red / Full Race / and two engines along with all the supporting mods. The examples I mentioned above (and many more) all happened to me through this cars mod path. The OP's mod list he suggested was a very good foundation to ensuring a long and happy motor years to come. Wether it was something to be happy with, or taking the car further years down the road. Most of those mods will still be there and be reliable along the way.

I would also like to be clear that looking back at it all with my car and the things Ive done to it. I would either leave it relativity stock and enjoy it, or go all out. There's a lot of advantages to simplifying this car with fuel and air delivery from a rotated turbo / top feed fuel setup / with a decent exhaust manifold to be had verses keeping it in stock form. And just because you do go all out it does not have to make big power it just means you choose the right parts that have a capability to make a lot of power but more importantly have the capability to be reliable years down the road. Personally the idea of a big power subaru is something I am not interested in as its still heavy 4 cylinder at the end of the day. If I wanted a fast competitive car I would shoot for a light car with a larger displacement engine than my sti.
