Arrow 400 BHP modifications and the chassis lifetime

i recently bought my first STI (1999 STI version 5) and I want to get back into local drags with the new car. In order to make it possible to compete with the rest of the WRXs and EVOs in the club, i have to modify my car to get some power around 350 - 400 BHP.


My first question is, If I do modifications to get a such a larger power, will it have negative effect on the chassis's life time? (will it cause any fractures etc?)

And, if someone can make a list of modifications (including names of performance parts) to get a power around 350BHP, that would be very helpful for me. specially because since I'm new to subaru world, i dont have a good knowledge about what to buy and what to avoid!


Thanks in advance!

VF36 or VF35
fuel pump
decent panel filter
remap

should see you over 300 without spending a fortune.

Do not worry about the chassis.
