well if the hg was changed 5 months ago and theres no probelms with it i would leave it alone but if you want to be in the 300 hp range i would say if the motor is mechanically sound i wouldnt touch cause if memory serves me correct the stock internals can withstand up to 550hp?? correct me if im wrong guys but then i would go with some simple upgrades such as a lightweight racing fly wheel and racing clutch new exhaust sytem to open up the exhaust and let it flow if your turboed go 3" i would say thats what i go with and remove the cats if you can then cold air intake system manual or electronic boost controller right now im running 12-13 psi on the stock ct26 turbo and it boosts good then get a new intercooling system i went 2 and a quarter not to bad of turbo lag but it kick in hardrr now but i would say those are some decent upgrades you could go with to get to the 300 hp range and also get a fcd if you dont want to hit fuel cut im using an hks fuel cut defencer

I myself would think upgrading the exhaust from the turbo back would be ideal for first upgrade. LIPP makes a extremely less restrictive turbo/downpipe elbow. Then a full three inch downpipe. After that, as cyanide said, remove cats and full three inch exhaust.

And if you are planning to run higher boost I would consider a blow off valve, I don't know how much the stock recirculation valve can hold, if you still have it on.

As for complete rebuild, expect to have the car offline for a few weeks if you have all the rebuild stuff. I looked into this a little but it could be anywhere from like $3000 to $5000 depending on what types of parts you get and how much machine work would cost. But if the car runs fine I would leave it the way it is.
