Your thoughts on 450bhp sti import

Hi new to the forums although not new to Imprezas

Just wandered different people's opinions on the following set up...

Using a Legacy 2lit closed deck block (water ways are thicker than wrx) , STI V4 heads complete with shims, lowered comp ration to 8.2 using custom made forged JE Pistons, an uprated racing crank from API, ecu - Autronic rally ecu, 820cc injectors and a GT30 turbo set up with external tial waste gate running 27psi, waste gate set so screams out the side of the car .
