I have to check but I believe that the invidia downpipe for the Legacy GT will fit.

By the way, I have the STI '13 hatch AUTO too. And I'm in Kuwait, so drop me a PM if you have any more questions.
Already bought invidia downpipe and exhaust
Cobb intake

Next on the list are but still undecided on which brand
Wheels
Lower kit
Fmic

Great buy
Can't give any suggestions on wheels as you have too many to choose from.
Lower kit: roads here are horrible as you know, so I will go with a maximum of 1inch drop.. but to really make the car handles better I would suggest some bushings (LCA bushings, cross member, etc) and some not too stiff sway bars and endings..
FMIC: are you planning on upgrading the turbo?

Im looking at the eibach lowerkit, maybe add some whiteline swaybars

As for the FMIC , the car is an ongoing project maybe ill stop at 300whp or take it to 600

With temperatures of 60'C in the summer , the car will benefit from some cooling

It's cooling down A BIT these days around 49c haha..
I got the blitz oil cooler and the group N steering fluid cooler which will be installed soon. I know at least 3 guys here in Kuwait who needed a steering pump replacement because of over heating (myself too).. I was lucky that the car was still on warranty but if it wasn't, I would have paid 350KD (over 1000$).

Whiteline products are great.. and you can really kit great kits from them.

I'm not really experienced in engine modifications so I can't really recommend FMIC or such.. but I'm sure the guys here will help.

If you only want 300whp, don't bother with a FMIC unless you just want it for show, it's not a necessity.

Personally I would go stage 2 and add a transmission cooler.

From where did you buy the oil and steering cooler ?

How much power and torque can the automatics take though before the clutches start to slip and or gears brake? Can the stall speed be changed or a smaller converter available to help with launches?

I agree with others though at this point the technology available for hydraulic actuated Sequential manual version of the current 6 speed would be the way to go. Keeping my fingers crossed that subaru does that in the next gen as an option.
