Welcome to the club.

Getting the engine breathing better (performance air filter, less restrictive exhaust) should gain you a little pit of power.

Personally, I'd say sorting out the handling is a better way to spend your money, having more confidence in your braking and steering will make the car feel much faster.

Yeah, that's the sort of thing.

I don't know if it's possible, you'd have to find a way of blanking off the oil feed etc for the turbo. Whether valve and piston clearance would be an issue is something you'd have to research. Someone asked a very similar question about improving their Impreza yesterday and somebody suggested more aggressive cams- this might be an easier option.

Iv been doing a bit of research over the last few days and upgrading the engine seams to be a complete waste of time and money. 

 

Now with my impreza Ill be stripping the engine down to replace a burnt valve and im considering replacing the big end bearings while the engine is stripped as the engine has 165,000 miles on it. After the engine is re-assembled ill be more so focusing on suspension and brake upgrades as opposed to trying to make it do faster.
