I'm interested in doing all of the above..Anything that helps stiffen the chassis the better..IMO

The only thing I would be worried about is if doing something like this would alter the crash dynamics of the car... not an expert so i wouldn't now.. any thoughts?

I pretty sure there is no brace behind the factory fender. Of all the fenders I've removed off cars, I've never ran across a strengtening brace behind the fender. Then again, I've never had a subie fender off.

Didn't even cross my mind, but that is an excellent point. Either way the cross strut tower brace where the rear seat lets down will be a must for me. I know being able to let the seat down is a plus for most, but there is a lot of structural rigidity loss for that access. IMO

You're welcome & if you do ALL that stiffening on one vehicle, I bet it rides pretty rough, but handling will be off the charts probably if the right suspension is dialed in properly.
