Just put an exhaust on and leave it at that. GCs are an ageing model if u start tinkering with things something else is going to break. I've seen a stardard wrx break 2nd gear twice, by abuse (not me but my old car). So if u treat it badly it will break.

Just save ur money and buy an 03 sti which can be had for high 20s. Unbreakable box, strong engine and overall better car. If you start modding I can see that sort of coin going to fix it.

Just my 2cents

Mate, just have a look around. Can pick up Hybrid FMIC kits for $650 off ebay, second hand vf35's/34s for a little over the thou mark. Injectors for about $400, fuel pumps $250, ECU's i picked up an apexi powerfc for $900 plus $200 for a z32 afm but this has since gone up in price. Shop around, think about stuff before buying them and it will take time to get there but i found its better to mod a bit at a time. This way there is more satisfaction with every piece of gear that goes on.

Just though, whilst saying a mod at a time is great for satisfaction, also saving up for a few mods such as headers, turbo and say an intake would be cheaper if you bought them all at once, and got them thrown on at once.

Year ago i believe i ended up doing a fuel pump, fmic, 650cc injectors, PowerFC with Z32 AFM with 1 tune and upped the boost. Cost me $4500 for all the mods including dyno time.

why would you want to dump the clutch? In a wrx it wouldnt actually do anything but make the car bog and not go anywhere.

Id bet you could get a far better launch by slipping the clutch a little rather than dumping it at 6g
