WRX 300 upgrade

Has anybody on here upgraded one of these ? I would like to go from 265 up to 300 bhp and am not sure how much work and money would be involved.
Also can someone tell me what size injectors and which turbo is fitted to these ?
Cheers

Re: WRX 300 upgrade

simple remap should do the trick chap,high flow filter,fuel pump n job done,a mate had his fo pop on rollers a few years back,ended up with a 2.5 unit built for him,iirc runs 330bhp and around the 360 ft/lb torque,everything else was left as is

injecters should be 440's,as for the tubby,good question think it was either a vf24 or a td05,pretty sure the spec of em is on here somewhere..

Na thats bollix mate you don't need all that. I reckon fuel pump and STI TMIC at the most plus remap you just need a good mapper and access V-Power or E85 fuel and jobs a good un.

Prodrive pack needs re-map
As above new high flow filter and uprate your fuel pump (Walbro 255L)

Not sure of your location... but I have heard good things about Bob Rawle BRD for re-map and also Jolly Green Monster (Mobile service comes to you)

Filter 30 - 40 appx
Fuel pump 80- 100 appx
Re-map 600 appx
