Id get a few more mods as each mod you do requires a remap and will save you a few 's in the long run. Also you will notice alot more, the big jump in power if you fit alot of parts at the same time then stick it on the rollers :-)

No need for a Fmic unless you go big turbo or something like that... But that jmo, to each it's own

Not sure what you drive, but nothing you will be doing with any stock turbo Subaru would warrant a FMIC unless you live in an extremely hot environment (Middle East, Arizona, etc). Pretty much all FMICs have cores that are far too big for smaller turbos and the advantages of running the stock turbos (spool up/responsiveness) are negated by running a FMIC for negligible peak power gains.
