A lot of the questions about WRX tuning have to do not
with getting the power (that's simple), but keeping it
reliable.  Via word of mouth, I believe at least one
WRX blew its motor on a road course track this past
year.  It's all about the engine management.  A friend
has gone through a block or two with his Gen 2 Talon
TSi with a batch of bad gas + boost controller +
piggyback fuel computer + no talent whatsoever in
hearing a ping.  It's all about the MoTec.  :-)
As for the wing on the STi, look at the previous STi's
and especially 22B's.  Break out the spatula and the
griddle folks, cause we have a heaping plateful of
rice for the kiddies.
